Boletín del Informe Mundial de Cultura de Paz, Octubre 2008/Enero 2009

Estimados amigos:

¡Envío mis más cálidos saludos para el nuevo año 2009 y mis mejores deseos a todos y a todas!

Trabajemos juntos para hacer que el mundo esté más cerca de la cultura de paz en éste - el penúltimo del último año del Decenio Internacional de una cultura de paz y no violencia para los niños del mundo.

Actualmente existen varios debates relativos a cómo organizar la celebración del final de la década en el año 2010, y cómo prolongar sus acciones en los diez próximos años. Será importante establecer planes concretos durante el próximo año 2009. A este respecto, sus sugerencias serán bienvenidas, y las publicaré en la próxima edición del boletín.

Para cerrar el año 2008, encontrarán a continuación los artículos más recientes que han sido enviados al CPNN - Red de Noticias de Cultura de Paz. Ver .
