Peace in Our Cities
The Peace in Our Cities campaign seeks to galvanize momentum towards reducing global violence – one of the most critical crises of our time. Specifically, it seeks to mobilize a movement of people, mayors, and city governments to halve urban violence by 2030. In so doing, the Peace in Our Cities campaign will create concrete, participatory, and evidence-based platforms for progress towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 16, with an initial focus on SDG16.1.
By signing the Peace in Our Cities SDG16 Action Pledge, mayors and endorsing entities will be leading global momentum towards reducing global violence as well as working to shape a city-to-city collaboration framework to develop and drive global best practice for SDG16.1 and SDG16+.
The Kroc Insight paper, Global Violence, Urban Innovation: Launching the Peace in Our Cities Campaign, presents important knowledge on how the Peace in Our Cities campaign can help drive change by putting evidence behind city efforts to support integrated approaches to violence reduction.
