February is the Peace and Conflict Resolution Month.
 
Rotary International and its districts and clubs around the world are a grassroots movement for peace, a community of people committed to “positive peace”. Celebrating Peace Days, flag raisings, creating Peace Parks and Peace Poles in partnership with our Indigenous neighbours, are all outward signs of how we practice the Four Way Test in our daily lives, advancing understanding, goodwill, peace and compassionate action. The establishment of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and our program Rotary Adventure in Human Rights (RAHR) are powerful tools for learning and educating ourselves about how to be peace builders.
