The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed the year 2000 as the International Year for the Culture of Peace and the decade 2001-2010 International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the children of the World. UNESCO was designated as lead agency for this Decade.



The Manifesto 2000 for a culture of peace and non-violence, was drafted by a group of Nobel Peace Prize, to translate the resolutions of the United Nations into everyday language and to make them relevant to people everywhere.

The Manifesto 2000 does not appeal to a higher authority, but instead it is an individual commitment and responsibility.







The Manifesto 2000 was made public in Paris on March 4th 1999, during a press conference at the Eiffel Tower and is open to signatures from the wider public throughout the world. This conference welcomed a certain number of personalities as well as 100 young committed to diffuse this message.

You are invited to join them and to become Messenger of the Manifesto 2000.
