Peace Cities presenta iniciativas locales llevadas a cabo en ciudades de todo el mundo que han albergado eventos interreligiosos locales en cooperación con el Partner Cities Network y el Parlamento de las Religiones en reuniones internacionales pasadas (Chicago, 1993, Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica 1999, Barcelona, España 2004, Monterrey, México 2007 y Melbourne, Australia, 2009). Los organizadores de estos eventos locales representan a más de 120 organizaciones internacionales no gubernamentales, instituciones, fundaciones, coaliciones interreligiosas, y a miles de líderes religiosos y espirituales, activistas de base, educadores y líderes cívicos.

Peace Cities se fundó el 21 de septiembre de 2010, coincidiendo con el Día Internacional por la Paz de Naciones Unidas para reconocer el trabajo de campo realizado por las comunidades interreligiosas y sus líderes que trabajan para fomentar la cooperación entre religiones, la paz y la cohesión social. Las ciudades que han obtenido la designación de la Ciudades por la paz pueden optar por solicitar la adhesión a la Partner Cities Network.
