Rotary Peace Bell project
Rotary Peace Bell project

Michael Rabey is a member of the The Rotary Club of Canberra Burley Griffin (RCCBG) and co-ordinator of the Canberra Rotary Peace Bell Project. This club  instigated the fundraising and creation of the bell.

In partnership with the World Peace Bell Association, the Rotary Club of Canberra Burley Griffin undertook an ambitious project of building a peace bell pavilion within the Canberra Nara Peace Park precinct on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. The Canberra Rotary Peace Bell is the result.

Officially launched on 23 February 2018 the bell provides a destination in Nara Park to remind us that we want a peaceful World. 

Michael will explain the project as well as the Rotary Peace Bell Project for schools and how clubs and individuals can be involved.
