OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT
Train 500 Leaders of the implementation of the Rotary Vigilant Neighbor Model in positive peace for the prevention and recovery of civic values with information on how to ensure safety and promote values in the community.
Phase 1: Training of the Institute of Economy and Peace in Positive Peace to 500 leaders of Rotary Vigilante Neighbor, in 7 Rotary clubs, located in 5 states of the republic.
Phase 2: Production and delivery of material related to Rotary Vigilante Neighbor, which consists of plates and canvases, which contain information related to community preventive safety.
Phase 3: Positive Peace Monitoring through indicators, which will be done monthly in each of the 5 states for a period of 4 months.
Phases 4: Registration of monitoring indicators through a computer system, which will be implemented in each of the 5 participating states.
The present project has the purpose of execution in the five states of D4185 according to the location of the Rotary clubs with which it has twinning from the training in Neighbor Rotary Vigilant, derived from the national replica.
The states participating in this project are listed below with their corresponding peace index:
Acapulco and Chilpancingo
Jojutla, Temixco, Zapata, Cuernavaca and Atlatlahuacan
Such training will be applied by the Institute for the Economy and Peace in 5 States of the Mexican Republic, 10 Municipalities and with the Supervision of 7 Twin Rotary Clubs of the National Network of Rotary Vigilante Neighbor. The training includes material from peace positive, Rotary Vigilante Neighbor. Subsequently, the Direct Gradual Civil Development Association will be monitored for 4 months to record the results obtained and take them to positive peace indicators, which will feed a positive rotary surveillance neighborhood platform.
They are organizations related to the area of interest in peace and conflict prevention, with which the problem will be addressed.
Rotary members will be responsible for supervising that the contents of the training are fully complied with. Likewise, they will verify that the monitoring and feeding of the system is done in a timely manner.
The report of the Institute of Economy and Peace (2019, P. 68), suggests how to improve peace in Mexico:
"• There is no magic or unique formula. Rather than relying on a single policy or intervention, the process of building and sustaining peace requires a great number of improvements throughout society, implemented simultaneously and for a considerable period. Successful cases to build peace are characterized by continuous actions and improvements in many areas and at the same time. The eight Pillars of Positive Peace constitute a framework that calls for action.
• Societies behave as self-regulating systems. Therefore, it is essential to understand and develop the rules and regulations, formal and informal, that determine the conduct and operation of such societies. Within systemic thinking, these regulations are called "coded standards." These codified norms generate a social impulse, and once the system moves in a particular direction, the actions of the system reinforce this direction by means of the codified norms. This creates a cycle that perpetuates itself. If these cycles improve, they are virtuous circles; If they deteriorate, they are vicious circles. Apparently, Mexico is trapped in a vicious circle.
• Stopping or preventing violence is not an end in itself, as it has been shown that ending violence without building peace is an ephemeral effort. To sustain peace, it is not enough to simply address the factors that caused violence in the past. But it is essential that Mexico combine the effective application of the law in the short term with advances in Positive Peace in the long term.
• The highest priority should be to prevent violence. However, recovery requires widespread and long-term measures to build Positive Peace. By addressing the most vulnerable factors, it is possible to build resilience in the most cost-effective way: actively promoting Positive Peace. "
The Leaders of the 5 states of D4185 are interested in acquiring more knowledge that allows them to better impact their communities.
