The undersigned in the Signature fields below, as citizens of our Community, State/Province, and Country as defined in the information provided, hereby acknowledge our intention to help build a community City of Peace. A City of Peace, as officially defined by International Cities of Peace, is a community that endeavors to make progress against violence and foster a culture of peace. A Culture of Peace is determined by the citizens of each community. As a guideline, United Nations Resolution A/RES/52/13 defines a Culture of Peace as a set of values, attitudes, modes of behavior and ways of life that reject violence and prevent conflicts by tackling their root causes to solve problems through dialogue and negotiation among individuals, groups, and nations. For peace and non-violence to prevail, we endeavor to:
• Foster a culture of peace through education • Promote sustainable economic and social development
• Promote respect for all human rights
• Ensure equality between women and men
• Foster democratic participation
• Advance understanding, tolerance and solidarity
• Support participatory communication and the free flow of information and knowledge
• Promote international peace and security
In addition to the UNESCO statement on a culture of peace, the Golden Rule (variously stated including “Do for others as you would have them to do for you”) provides a universal statement for compassion and respect among a community’s diverse philosophies, religions, and personal creeds.
Please fill out the names and email of the Signatories that have approved this City of Peace initiative. The more people involved the better it is to for the unity that is essential to peacebuilding. Thank you.
