BENEFITS OF “BECOMING” A CITY OF PEACE
Join Our Association of Independent Historical and Intentional Cities of Peace
No city is 100% a city of peace. We all endeavor to “become”. Establishing your community as an International Cities of Peace gives individuals and groups, as well as civil government a chance to focus on creating a community-wide culture of peace.
As an association of cities of peace, International Cities of Peace fosters, encourages, provides resources and tools, and helps network individual peace communities around the world. We are not a funding organization but can point to funding sources. This association of cities of peace provides an easy, practical, collaborative environment for building the worldwide peace community while respecting the individuality of communities.
