Mayor Celia Wade-Brown lays a wreath at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial
On 27 August 2014 at the Governance Finance and Planning Committee Meeting, Council resolved to accept Mayor Matsui’s invitation to Mayor Celia Wade-Brown to become an Executive Leader for Peace in the Mayors for Peace organisation.
Recognised internationally, Mayors for Peace "strives to raise international public awareness regarding the need to abolish nuclear weapons" and "contributes to the realisation of genuine and lasting world peace."
Mayor Wade-Brown's new role further strengthens Wellington’s position as a peaceful city, and builds on our national network of New Zealand Mayors for Peace. Wellington’s status as a safe and welcoming city was endorsed by the World Health Organisation when we were awarded the safe community status in 2006, and when this was renewed in 2012.
As an Executive Leader for peace, Mayor Wade-Brown will be encouraging cooperation and information sharing activities related to nuclear disarmament.
Wellington became a nuclear free capital in 1983 and the national nuclear-free zone legislation was passed in 1987.
On these pages you will find the city’s core peace activities, and the celebrations that our city is engaged in. These run alongside the many cultural celebrations and events organised by people and organisations throughout the city.
As a Peace City, Wellington hosts many peace activities and celebrations. The Council supports a number of these events.
