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 Private Eco High School has obtained the status of an affiliated UNESCO school. It is also the training school for students of Charles University – Faculty of Pedagogy. It develops its name as a prestigious educational institution, oriented at ecology and humanities. Its programme conception is derived from the notion of an interconnected world, which is influenced by everybody; i.e., every school graduate working in any field may influence it. Every year, the Private Eco High School also develops an updated Plan of Ecological Education. The School has received the “Order of Hurvínek Smile” (Hurvínek is a very popular children’s marionette) for the help to Prague conkers, it has also obtained the title ECOSCHOOL of 2003 and 2004, and it has received the certificate of IES (International Education Society).

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

None reported.

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 basic philosophy of our school is to form a modern lifestyle, based on creative, friendly atmosphere between the school, students, parents and the surrounding environment. We also stress the education towards a harmonious relationship of an individual with the nature but also with other people, by means of extending the students’ awareness of responsibility to their own health, education and self-improvement. The students’ participation in multiculturally-oriented activities, connected with the interest in the form of direct support of conditions that open new horizons of human knowledge, plays a crucial role in this process.

The students of the Eco High School have the possibility to show their individuality and creativity not only in the educational process but also during the yearly after-school events (the ball of the Eco High School, the activities connected with The Day of the Earth, a Garden Party etc.).

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?

The school is part of the Life-Link Friendship-Schools network. It is also a UNESCO affiliated school.

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)?

By its whole training and educational activity the School attempts to teach students to think in context and also to realize their responsibility for their health and for the surrounding environment. It is clear that it is not possible to measure the improvement of environment. Yet, if our students and graduates embrace the habits of a healthy and tolerant lifestyle, then in their future lives they will surely be able to influence significantly not only their families but also the society around them
