PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

The answer to this question is a positive yes.  We measure progress through increasing public and private involvement in developing their human resources as promoters of a peace and nonviolence culture.   The indicator:  Secretaria Municipal de Educação - the city agency for basic education - has granted scholarships to 30 key people who had already attended a 2 years UNIPAZ holistic training course.  This people have the responsibility of wide spreading peace principles within public school network.  Petrobras - probably the largest Brazilian corporation - has also granted scholarship on the same training course to one of his human resources manager.

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

* Lack of a governmental support.
* Lack of an official  culture of peace coordinator body.  
* Misuse of the culture of peace concept by opportunists, people and or organizations, who seek extra advantage of any sort working with, for or on behalf of peace.
