Latest reader comment:
CPNN has often carried articles about establishing a culture of peace at the level of the city, but there are also some advantages to promoting a culture of peace at a somewhat broader regional level.
In particular, the culture of peace needs to be based on a sustainable economy, which, in the long run, should depend on local agricultural production more than imported food. áThis requires that the unit for the culture of peace include not only the city, but also the agricultural region surrounding it.
