This book features places of peace in the communities of New Zealand, also known as Aotearoa. It shows how City and District Councils have worked to enhance their areas by encouraging people to help establish quiet places where they can enjoy artwork, walks, or merely sit in gardens and parks to enjoy peace. Many people have take part in establishing these peaceful places. Some installations have resulted from competitions to have sculptures in public places; other peace sites are memorials to history, like the Hiroshima flame in the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Rekohu, the Chatham Islands, is also included, for the islands, with its Moriori history, is known as a specials place of peace. Adults, children, volunteers and general workers have all taken part in seeing that our communities have areas of peace.
