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 city of Casatenovo joined “MAYORS FOR PEACE” in september 2003. We haven’t  seen any progress in the culture of peace and non-violence yet, and at the moment we did not have the opportunity to develop indicators.

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

The main obstacle to achieve our goals it has been the lack of an elective administration, indeed the City it has been administrated until June 2004 by a Vice Prefectorial Attaché.
So the new elected administration has found a pretty difficult situation, with a lot of things to do, and few money to invest in the promotion of the culture of peace.

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

The most important action in the promotion of the culture of peace and non-violence undertaken by the city of Casatenovo it has been the institution of the Graziella Fumagalli and Madre Erminia Cazzaniga Prize. This prize awards, every year, the best project in the field of the promotion of the culture of peace and solidarity. With this award we also want to commemorate and express gratitude to the citizen of Casatenovo Mrs. Graziella Fumagalli who, with spirit of absolute abnegation, sacrificed her own life for the suffering and less fortunate, making us witnesses of peace.

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?


PARTNERSHIPS: What partnerships and networks does your organization participate in, thus strengthening the global movement for a culture of peace?

We are partner of “MAYOR FO PEACE” and of the “Lecco Committee for Peace and cooperation between Popoli”.

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)?

We realize that what we have done is not enough, but there is now a true political willingness to invest time and resources in the promotion of the culture of peace. There is finally a political administration, thanks to this new situation it would be possible for the next years to plan actions, create indicators and measure the goals achieved.
NEXT DOMAINS OF ACTIONS:
· Human rights
· International Co-operation in order to promote solidarity, fight against the problem of the hunger all over the world and against underdevelopment.
