Peacebuilding in District 7430

Rotary International has been a strong supporter of peacebuilding since its founding days and continues with Peace Fellowships, Peace Centers, Peace Forums, and the Project Focus Area on Peace and Conflict Resolution among other efforts.  Rotary people exchanges have involved well over 100,000 people and are an outstanding cornerstone of our effort to increase world understanding and peace. 

Almost everyone, everywhere wants a more peaceful world.  Rotary is superbly situated to leverage our commitment to peace to drive peacemaking in the world like we have driven polio eradication.  Leading thinkers believe war could end in this century and Rotary could play a major role.
