Over the period 7-10 September, ten international Peace Fellows, undertaking their Rotary peace and conflict resolution studies at the University of Queensland, visited Canberra.  During the visit, the Peace Fellows visited a number of Canberra institutions, including the War Memorial, the National Museum, the Australian Civil Military Centre and ANU.  The Peace Fellows all have different backgrounds and objectives from the studies, with the common aim of supporting peace processes in their region or area of speciality.
The Peace Fellows dinner on 9 September was a celebration of Rotary's support to this very significant initiative and of the drive and character of each of the Peace Fellows.  Each Peace Fellow spoke of their background and desires after completing their studies.  Several cited the visit to the Rotary Peace Bell on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin as one of the highlights of the visit - for more information on the Peace Bell see: https://www.canberrarotarypeacebell.org/
