A proven way to Inspire Peace

What an ICP Action Plan means, locally and globally.


Safety. Prosperity. Quality of Life. These are the Consensus Values of Peace™ that bring the world away from division and violence toward unity and the power of Love of Community. Love of Place — where you were born, grew up, began your working life, had a family, retired (re-inspired!) is core to your existence. Love of Community is deep in our hearts. Each member City of Peace in our fast growing association of International Cities of Peace understands the drive to make families safe, have food on the table, achieve a high quality of life where all people have purpose. To that end, each City of Peace develops a local Action Plan and, best of all, takes action!


ICP’s approach is a different and proven platform. We respect local knowledge. We empower the peacemakers with training and connections. Our Liaisons (community leaders) recruit and lead volunteer Peace Teams to plan, monitor, implement, and measure true on-the-ground work for the benefit of all in the community. The quickest path to peace, and the only way it is sustainable, is through considered volunteerism. Funding is very important, but commitment is essential. We’ve tapped into what people do — they work for peace in thousands of ways.


To help self-motivated peacemakers to succeed, ICP encourages donor-volunteer relationships, the kind that works together based on mutual respect. Only by the deep commitment by those who are actually in the situation can a community be transformed. The driver is love, the path is unity. The results are amazing. Check out 33 ICP Action Plans for proof!


Thanks to everyone who is contributing time, ideas, funding, and volunteer leadership to this Herculean effort that is our best hope to meet and defeat our impending existential challenges. What better way? Onward and ever upward, community by community.


Sincerely and with greatly rising hope,


J. Frederick Arment
