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.

It is a step from violence to peaceful culture. In this case tolerance is a value, opening the door to the real aims, peace, respect to adults and children. In order to achieve these goals various actions were organized at our school. Every year our school teachers and students organize and participate in the events, devoted to the world day of tolerance on the 16th of November : "I am for tolerant Lithuania", "I am for tolerant World", "Contact Day", etc. The 3rd of December is the international day of disabled people, every year our school mentions it : the education centre of handicrafts for disabled students was opened in 2006, different festivals were held, which encouraged disabled students to learn and live. Our school participated in the international project "Holocaust in Europe and Lithuania" in 2007. The 23rd of September is the day when we remember the victims of Lithuanian Jews' genocide : civil actions "Memory" and others were organized to recollect the victims and destroy the wall of intolerance. Our teachers of Religious Education constantly organize the kindness actions ("Angel of Kindness"), which encourage students to show tolerance, kindness, love, respect. Our school also participates in the international projects : "flicktheswitch.eu", encouraging the reduced usage of energy resources and "Living with Our and Others' religions-Together in Diversity", encouraging tolerance to people of different religions. All these actions and projects made one more step towards common peace and security.

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?

The actions helped to spread good ideas of taking care of peace and formed the feeling of friendship and mutual understanding. Everybody had an opportunity to express an idea of friendship and certify it. The students meaningfully realized their creative, artistic abilities, showed love and respect for people. Also, they were taught to live in the multicoloured, cosmopolitan world. They understood that we all are equal in the world not withstanding our nationality, religion, etc.

None reported.

Our school aims to mention the international day of tolerance on the 16th of November, the Jewish Genocide day on the 23rd of September every year.

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

As we are a part of the world, everyone has to preserve it and to create peace in it by perfect behaviour, showing tolerance, being polite in everyday situation.
