International Cities of PeaceTM is a nonprofit, tax-exempt association dedicated to connecting, promoting, and encouraging the global cities of peace movement. An Advisory Council of leaders from global Cities of Peace organizations is working to create an all-inclusive, non-polarizing network of world citizens working to bring peace to their communities. We have over 130 cities around theworld in South America, North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
VISION: To foster peace as a consensus value in Cities of Peace around the world.
MISSION: To network, encourage, document, and provide resources and information for leaders and organizations working to make peace a consensus value through the global Cities of Peace movement.
• Network individuals, villages, and cities of peace, internationally.
• Provide an independent, unaligned resource for Cities of Peace.
• Act as a non-polarizing source of information on worldwide peace issues.
• Encourage, honor, and connect peace adherents and organizations.
• Document the history, scholarship, and formation of cities of peace.
• Expand the concept of the American Dream to the World Dream of peace.
Safety, prosperity, and quality of life are the consensus values of Peace around the world. Creating an International City of Peace ensures a sustainable platform for the entire community to begin working toward a culture of peace. Is it time for your community to be a part of this hopeful and practical movement? Hereʼs how.
To create an initiative is very simple and costs no money. You can emphasize the work you are currently doing, or create a new organization for community peace building. We believe that each community has a legacy of peace that can be highlighted, especially in terms of giving hope and encouragement to children and adults alike. We are not a funding organization but individual cities of peace have the option of working with other cities through our Global Family Program.
One person, perhaps you, will be included on our Advisory Council of Leaders. We will make the announcement about your initiative when the following are received:
1. Letter of Intent with signatures (print, get signatures, and scan to return)
2. A vision, mission, and goals statement (as detailed as possible)
3. Photos and captions of local events, locations, or historical events
4. A photo and bio for the leader of the group
5. If possible, a statement about the peace legacy of your community
Please go to our website under “How to Create a City of Peace” to find the Letter of Intent pdf as well as the document Becoming a City of Peace.
