Culture de la Paix
Compte rendu succinct des activités du Comité de liaison ONG-UNESCO

Les ONG en relations officielles avec l’UNESCO accordent une importance capitale à la Culture de la Paix depuis la création de l’UNESCO en 1945. « Les guerres prenant naissance dans l’esprit des hommes, c’est dans l’esprit des hommes que doivent être élevées les défenses de la Paix ».

Elles ont participé et continuent à participer activement à la Décennie Internationale de la Promotion d’une Culture de la Paix au profit des Enfants du Monde » (2001-2010).

Dès l’année 2000 elles diffusaient massivement le « Manifeste 2000, pour une culture de la paix et de la non violence » édité par l’UNESCO et qui a reçu plusieurs millions de signatures.

En 2002, le Comité de liaison des ONG en relations avec l’UNESCO et la Coordination Culture de la Paix (UNESCO - BSP/CP) éditaient une brochure en 3 langues et lançaient une campagne sur le thème « Patrimoines pour une Culture de la Paix » dont l’objectif était la mise en valeur d’un patrimoine local en tant qu’outil de prise de conscience et d’action pour une Culture de la Paix, campagne qui devait connaître un vif succès auprès des ONG.

La Conférence Internationale des ONG de décembre 2003 confirmait cet engagement et de nombreuses ONG poursuivaient leurs actions « afin d’impulser des projets contribuant à l’universalité d’une Culture de la Paix, supplantant définitivement la culture de la guerre ».

Le 22 novembre 2004, le Comité de liaison organisait une journée internationale sur la Culture de la Paix tandis que le groupe de travail poursuivait ses travaux.

Culture of Peace
Report on activities by the NGO-UNESCO’s Liaison Committee

NGOs maintaining official relations with UNESCO attach great importance to the Culture of Peace since the Organisation began in 1945. " Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed".

NGOs contributed and still  work actively for the International decade for a culture of peace and Non-Violence for the children of the World( 2001-2010).
In  the year 2000, they circulate in massive numbers the " Manifesto 2000, for au Culture of Peace and Non-Violence", edited by UNESCO with millions of signatures

In 2002, The NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee in partnership with the UNESCO Coordination for a Culture of Peace launched the project "Heritage for a culture of Peace" and edited a brochure in three different languages. The objective of this project was to capitalise on local heritage as an awareness raising and action tool for a culture of peace. It raised a vivid interest among NGOs.

The International Conference of NGOs held in December 2003 confirmed, if necessary, the NGOs’ commitment. A large number of them  carried on  further actions  in order to impulse new trends for a universal culture of peace replacing for ever the culture of war.

On 22 November 2004, The Liaison Committee organised an International Day on Culture of Peace whereas the Working group followed up its work.
