ACTIONS: What activities have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the ten years of the Decade? If you already made a report in 2005, your information from 2005 will be included in the 2010 report.

We organized once a year a Peace Run around the Vienna Town Hall as a Sponsor Run: "Österreichischer Friedenslauf um das Wiener Rathaus".
All schools of our country were invited to present their Peace Project on the stage. In order to develop "civil courage", which is of course of great importance for all sorts of nonviolent actions in solving conflicts we encouraged all those who wanted to join the event to find sponsors who would promise a fixed payment for each single round (about 710 metres) around the Town Hall.
As we were a team of Volunteers to organize this great event with about 3.000 runners and guests and the expenses were covered by firms who got the possibility for advertising, all money was per 100% sent to projects in India, Romania, Sri Lanka and other countries to help deeply underprivileged children and give them a new chance for their lifes (e.g: free them from child labour and give them a training...).
For we are sure that peace has only a chance where peolpe's life is worth living.The amount came up to more than € 330.000.-.
And during the 3 hours of each Peace Run children and grown ups together painted large "Peace" Pictures for the Art Miles Mural Project.

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

not really visible.

OBSTACLES: Has your organization faced any obstacles to implementing the culture of peace and nonviolence? If so, what were they?

not really, on the contrary, we found a lot of institutions and officials who gave us very valuable help!

PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization in the short, medium and long term to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence?

We want to continue with this very successful project

GLOBAL MOVEMENT: How do you think the culture of peace and nonviolence could be strengthened and supported at the world level??

I very much hope so!
