One of Rotary's six areas of focus is peacebuilding in communities and regions affected by conflict.  "Peace on Earth" is also a recurring theme for the upcoming holiday season.  Enjoy this special 1 minute commercial from the early 90's, run by a grocery store chain in Florida, that didn't promote groceries - rather it promoted "Peace on Earth" in a compelling way (hint: turn up the volume!).
Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.   Rotary encourages conversations to foster understanding within and across cultures. We train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict and help refugees who have fled dangerous areas.
Local Rotarians have been closely involved in the establishment of Global Peace Centre Canada in Waterloo.  (For more information on supporting peace building in Canada, contact Rotarian Ernie Ginsler at
