Peace Days exists for all persons who believe in a culture of peace and compassion.
The Rotary Club of Winnipeg Peace Builder Committee is an inspirer and facilitator of a grassroots movement working together for positive peace locally, nationally and internationally.
Through a network of dedicated individuals, institutions, organizations and businesses [also known as Venue Participants] work is done and efforts are made to come together to promote and advance understanding, goodwill, and positive peace through peace literacy education, awareness and action. This work and awareness is showcased during the Peace Days Festival taking place annually, September 10th to 21st and through Peace Days 365 events happening throughout the year.
Be A PIECE of PEACE. Venue Participants and allies are invited to choose a piece of the peace objectives that resonate or, are encouraged to create other objectives that promote and action the peace literacy movement that advance the vision, mission and values of the Rotary Club of Winnipeg’s Peace Builder Committee.
Peace Days was inspired by Rotary World Peace Partners in 2010. Peace Days grew out of a desire to celebrate the United Nations' International Day of Peace, designated as September 21st each year.
This year, from September 10-21, 2019, Peace Days will include a diverse, stimulating program of events throughout Winnipeg to appeal to all ages.
