Our definition of peace is divided into two distinct components. Peace with an upper case P stands for world peace,nuclear disarmament and the eradication of war. Peace building and conflict resolution is one of the areas of focus of Rotary International. Peace with a lower case p stands for safety and security in our homes and communities.Our project seeks to:”Increase the Peace.”

We seek to unite our communities in common purpose and mission. In focusing on our educational institutions we seek to train the next generation in peace building and peaceful cooperation. We hope to hold two major contests for youth each year: 1.International May Peace Prevail on Earth Art Contest 2.What Peace Means to Me?poetry,short story,photo essay and music

Yes, I approve the guidelines for an International City of Peace and will provide four or more additional approved signatures of community Peace Team members (see next registration field). “A culture of peace is a set of values, attitudes, traditions and modes of behavior and ways of life based on respect for life, ending of violence and promotion and practice of non-violence through education, dialogue and cooperation. Tenets include: Full respect for and promotion of all human rights and fundamental freedoms; Commitment to peaceful settlement of conflicts; Efforts to meet the developmental and environmental needs of present and future generations; Respect for and promotion of the right to development; Respect for and promotion of equal rights and opportunities for women and men; Respect for and promotion of the right of everyone to freedom of expression, opinion and information; Adherence to the principles of freedom, justice, democracy, tolerance, solidarity, cooperation, pluralism, cultural diversity, dialogue and understanding at all levels of society and among nations; and fostered by an enabling national and international environment conducive to peace.” In addition, the Golden Rule – “Do for others as you would have them do for you” — provides a unity proposition for personal, local and global peace.
