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?
We have seen progress (indicated by the increase over ithe last 5 years) in the number of organizations that have partnered with us in our activities. For example, our festival series 11 Days of Global Unity (which culminated on the International Day of Peace Sept. 21, 2004) involved well over 100 partner organizations with events in over 100 cities (80 countries) worldwide.
For us, this is an indication that the technology that facilitates networking, along with the desire for solidarity on a global scale is growing.
OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?
Adequate funding has continued to be our biggest challenge. However, our funding seems to be steadily increasing.
ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

At this event powerful and moving presentations suggested how important getting involved is at this time. An extraordinary array of speakers, performers and exhibitors combined to produce an evening of inspiration, information and action! Marianne Williamson brought down the house with her riveting talk about the Dept. of Peace and integrating spirit and activism. Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE touched people's hearts and her whole team was there from DC and other places (including a rescue dog) unfurling 4 Giant Peace Doves that moved through the audience. Gemma and her spectacular "Million Voice Choir" sang We Rise as the climax of a "wave" of choir voices singing through each time zone across 80 countries! Adotei Akwei with Amnesty International, other initiatives and the many exhibitors provided ways the public could get immediately involved. Exceptional performances were interspersed between speakers to create an evening that was inspiring on many levels. The event was webcast live.
Interdependence Day Sept. 12, 2004 - a major 11 Days event
In proclaiming Interdependence Day, we are acknowledging that we are all connected, and that when one thread in the web of life is sundered, all are diminished. Where equity and mutual respect prevail, all benefit. Interdependence Day is a day of celebration, information and action!

In 2004 Interdependence Day activities took place in New York City, Phoenix, Rome and other areas of the world.

SEASON FOR NONVIOLENCE
AT THE UNITED NATIONS
(Co-Sponsored by We, The World)
The Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence covers the period between the memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. January 30th through April 4th. It is an international, educational, media and grassroots campaign dedicated to promoting nonviolence as a powerful way to heal, transform and empower our lives and our communities. Launched in 1998, it strives to honor the vision of these great peacemakers through action and education.
On January 30, 2003 over 700 High School children took part in this inspirational event in which young people learned about the connection between nonviolence and health, and about the legacies of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Students were provided opportunities to create or participate in nonviolence programs, workshops, media and arts production and other activities in their schools.

PEACE IN THE 21ST CENTURY: AN IMPERATIVE FOR SURVIVAL
In response to the September 11th tragedy We, The World sponsored this historic event which featured speakers and views that the major media largely chose not to air. One day after the start of the bombing of Afghanistan participants heard the moving and informative words of Daniel Ellsberg, Jane Goodall, Robert Thurman, Amy Goodman, Richard Falk, Alice Slater, Robert Jay Lifton, Reverend Billy, and many others in an open dialogue about what led to this crisis, alternatives to war and ways forward that emphasize prevention (i.e. ending the conditions that give rise to hatred and terrorism) rather than crisis management (i.e. violent/military actions).
Portions of this event were broadcast on Radio for Peace International with a global listenership of 800,000 people! Co-sponsoring organizations included: USA, Unitarian Universalist Community Church of New York, The Foundation for Ethics and Meaning, The Earth Charter Summits, Friends of The Institute of Noetic Sciences, New York Women of Vision and Action, Tribal Link, Jews Against Genocide, Global Peoples Assembly, The Global Resources Action Center for The Environment, The Global Youth Action Network, The War Resisters League, NY Law School's Office for Public Interest and Community Service, Pathways to Peace, Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, St. Francis Xavier Church, and The Interfaith Center of New York.

ADVICE: What advice would you like to give to the Secretary-General and the General Assembly to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the second half of the Decade?
I suggest that NGOs and civil Society be given decision-making capabilities as part of a checks and balances system similar to the United States Congress.

PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence in the second half of the Decade (2005-2010)?
The Global Resources Network
Connecting caring organizations globally so that
a breakthrough anywhere can be
a breakthrough everywhere!
Overview: This breakthrough model of collaboration and mutual support will allow 1,000s of socially conscious organizations and individuals to effectively work together to create a world where people live in harmony with each other and with the rest of nature. At a time when there is so much suffering in the world, and the obstacles to peace and sustainability are so great, the Global Resources Network (GRN) will provide the resources and interconnectivity to facilitate local, regional and international civil society education, collaboration and organizing.
The GRN will accelerate the formation of a powerful international movement of concerned and informed people that generates political will and the enlightened consumer power needed to create a world that truly works for all!
In creating the GRN we will utilize our already-established extensive network of over 10,000 groups and individuals around the world plus our working relationships with hundreds of visionary leaders (such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu) and major organizations that include Amnesty International and the Jane Goodall Institute.
Imagine the tremendous social, economic, and political power of 1000s of organizations representing millions of people sharing resources, cross promoting their endeavors and participating in periodic mass events taking place simultaneously around the world!
Purpose: We are developing the Global Resources Network as a comprehensive, collaborative, worldwide communications and organizing network with innovative web-based technological resources. We envision this as a tool to:
1) significantly improve the effectiveness and visibility of civil society organizations and socially conscious businesses worldwide,
2) organize large-scale Public International Events that engage, inform and involve a global audience. 11 Days of Global Unity in Sept. 2004 was the first of these with events taking place in over 100 cities around the world.
To Achieve this the GRN will utilize innovative organizing tools such as: 1) A Global Event Calendar, 2) Collaborations tools and staff, 3) Partnering and multiple links with existing major networks, and 4) A Communications Network with online broadcasting and many other enhanced multimedia capabilities
