We're going to make peace 
by putting it in the hands of the people!


"Eugene City of Peace" is a meme, an affinity group, and a vision of collaboration. There are probably at least 150 groups in Eugene-Springfield that support human security, prosperity, and quality of life. Each organization has a special task focus, yet their collective impact is as if they were a team working for a culture of peace!

Our aspiration is that Eugene be one of many International Cities of Peace, a network of communities that by history, resolution, or proclamation are self-defining themselves as official Cities of Peace. There are over 100 City of Peace projects around the world, and the International Cities of Peace association hopes to reach 1,000 cities by the year 2020.
