The idea of Peace Communities was initiated in District 9700 in 1992. It has been embraced by many Rotary Districts and Clubs and Peace Cities have been designated around the world.
 
Rotarians committed to furthering Peace set up Peace symbols on suitable sites. Rotarians and local citizens meet on special days to recognise local citizens, students, schools and organisations for their contribution to Peace in Action within the community.
 
The program also activates partnerships between Rotary Clubs and civic authorities and organisations to focus on peace in local communities. Rotary Clubs are encouraged to initiate Peace in  Action projects with community groups (e.g. creating a garden for dementia patients, supporting Aboriginal conciliation activities, conducting a program for disadvantaged teens). Rotary Peace projects are those that successfully make a difference in the lives of individuals and groups and so contribute to Peace within the community.
The Rotary Club of Wagga Wagga Kooringal has prepared a Peace Communities Kit.
