Brazil in general and São Paulo in particular are leading the way in showing how a culture of peace can be developed at the municipal level.

As described in an earlier CPNN report, Culture of Peace Advances in Brazil, culture of peace commissions have been or are being established in the Brazilian cities of São Paulo, Itepecirica da Serra, São José dos Campos, Diadema, Curitiba, Ribeirão Pires and Cotia.  More recently a commission is being established in the city of Londrina.

Based largely on the Brazilian leadership, several of us have proposed a project to mobilize a network of cities that would measure progress toward a culture of peace.  The project proposal may be found on the Internet at the strategy site of the International Decade for a Culture of Peace.
