According to the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) – a Rotary partner, who is responsible for developing and reporting the Global.Peace Index, there have been improvements and deterioration in peace across the world. At Rotary, we believe by learning more about the impact of creating Positive Peace, it will provide an environment to flourish. The partnership with IEP provides a Rotary Peace Academy, that has enabled over 500 IEP ambassadors who are Rotary Peace fellows.
With a host of problems waiting to be solved around the world, there’s almost no limit to the roles that Rotary can play. In my view, the most important long-term, fundamental service activities are those that contribute to peace.
