In this interactive workshop participants will be introduced to the Positive Peace Index, a framework for measuring peaceful societies from the Institute of Economics and Peace (IEP). IEP is a strategic partner with Rotary International. Workshop attendees will walk away with an understanding of the eight pillars of positive peace and how the eight pillars related to Rotary’s six areas of focus. Participants will identify their own indicators for each pillar of positive peace and develop the ability to use the framework to design initiatives and projects for promoting positive peace in their communities and internationally. Strategies for funding Rotary’s peace initiatives will be examined at the workshop. A variety of positive peace resources that are available to support Rotary and Rotaract clubs will be introduced.


Everyone attending the workshop is encouraged to complete the Rotary Positive Peace Academy prior to the workshop.
