What is the difference between leven and wonen?

'Leven' is 'to exist', and 'wonen' is 'to dwell' or 'to inhabit'.

Can't wonen work here? And by 'excist' do you mean 'exist'?

No, 'wonen' doesn't work here. And yeah, I meant 'exist'. Thanks for pointing that out! :D

Why isn't it "we leven in de vrede"?
