As Rotarians, we have a fundamental interest in bringing peace to our world.
Rotary’s six Areas of Focus position us as a peacemaker with credentials established over more than a century. The first Area of Focus – Promoting Peace – seeks to address the structural causes of conflict around the world. That process often sees peacemakers address very basic issues on the path to peace.
Shared understanding can contribute to conflict resolution and the maintenance of peace by helping those involved find the common ground required for a sustainable solution. In this engaging talk, writer and radio host Celeste Headlee invites us to better understand people with whom we converse, and offers a number of suggestions to help the process.
