Peace culture and Culture of peace are two different things. Let see the details as mention below.
Peace is social health. Your body is made up of 60 trillion cells, as well as vast numbers of organisms that don’t even share your DNA. When all those cells and organisms are getting sufficient nutrition, clean water, and sanitation services in an environment that allows them to perform their proper functions, we call that health. Societies are healthy to the extent that their members (99%, not just 1%) have nutrition, clean water, and supportive environments.
Our current war culture is structured by the competitive effort to make oneself or one’s subgroup healthy and happy (comfortable, secure, etc.). Most of us engage wholeheartedly in this competition without considering how we affect folks around us, those across the tracks, and the Earth as a whole. Peace culture starts with the intention to restore our entire planet and everyone on it (including our plant and animal neighbors) to good health. The shared goal in a peace culture is sustainable universal wellbeing.
The distinguishing characteristic of a war culture is the acceptance of violence as an appropriate, legitimate or at least an unavoidable method of intergroup conflict resolution. Peace culture, by definition, does not accept group-on-group violence (war). The belief that violence, though bad, is good when good guys use it against bad guys, is the primary reason the war culture remains dominant. Until the human family abandons this belief, we will continue to be ruled by leaders skilled in the arts of lying, cheating, stealing, trickery, and violence. As long as resolutions determined by violence are accepted, violence will always win. Where winning by violence is accepted, all is fair.
Culture of Peace
A culture of peace is an integral approach to preventing violence and violent conflicts, and an alternative to the culture of war and violence based on education for peace, the promotion of sustainable economic and social development, respect for human rights, equality between women and men, democratic participation, tolerance, the free flow of information and disarmament.

• Defend freedom of expression and cultural diversity, giving preference always to dialogue and listening without engaging in fanaticism, defamation and the rejection of others;
