Building Bridges

 
Peace Poles can be found in town squares, city halls, schools, places of worship, parks, and gardens - any place where the spirit of Peace is embraced by people of good will. Since the beginning of the project over 400,000 Peace Poles have been planted in over 200 countries around the world: many Rotary Clubs and Sister Cities have led the way, as well as the Rotary Global History Fellowship and their gift to DPU University in Bangkok at the R! 2012 Convention.



Some of the extraordinary locations include the Pyramids of El Giza in Egypt, the Magnetic North Pole in Canada, Gorky Park in Russia, and Angkor Wat in Cambodia. They are promoting healing of conflict in places like Sarajevo, the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima, and the Allenby Bridge on the border between Israel and Jordan.



Mayors in many parts of the world (San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Manila) have planted Peace Poles to dedicate their cities and towns to World Peace. Both political leaders, such as former U.S. President Jimmy Carter (White House) and
 U.N. Headquarters- New York, and religious leaders, such as Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa and the Dalia Lama, have dedicated Peace Poles. Dr. Deepak Chopra and Barbara Marx-Hubbard have also dedicated a Peace Pole with Jeffrey Reiss in Bali at the New Earth Conference.
