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.

Globalnet action is focused on empowering leaders of culture of peace and sustainability through connecting meaningful propjects, programs and public policies around the world. Meetings and web exchanges are the main tools used.

Globalnet started the decade with a global meeting in Geneva "The Future of Our Children", sponsored by UNESCO and Geneva University. In 2002, another global meeting was held in São Paulo "Building a Planetary Culture: Peace and Global Citizenship". Continental meetings follow that in Bangkok/Asia, Nazareth/Middle East, Accra/Africa, Findhorn/Europe, Washington/North America, and Iguassu Falls/South America, from 2003-2005. From 2006 until now, the emphasis of Globalnet work was on local meetings, local networking and celebrations of World Days ( Earth, Environment, Culture of Peace and Human Rights) in cooperation with many partner organizations around the globe.

In 2006 organized sessions in the World Peace Forum - Vancouver, and participate in a Reserach Project on Conflict Resolution Networks in ICAR- George Mason University - Arlington.

In 2007 contributed with reports to the Global Alliance for Ministries of Peace III World Summit in Japan.

Along 2008 and 2009 continued calling for celebrations in World Days, gave support to formation of Peace Councils and local Peace Networks. In 2009's celebration of Earth Day launched the World Conference on Culture of Peace and Sustainability that will be happening this year, 2010.
In all of these events and actions Globalnet was articulating leaders from NGOs, Public and Private Sectors, involved with meaningful projects, programs and public policies on Education and Culture of Peace.

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?

Yes. We can see municipalities and even national governments adopting Culture of Peace principles and developing concrete policies in that direction. Three countries already have formal Ministries of Peace> Nepal (Peace and Reconstruction); Salomon Island; Costa Rica (Justice and Peace).
Civil Society foruns and programs are present in communication organizations, religious groups, education, health and environment. Encouraging programs in Justice (mediation, conflict resolution, youth and family conferencing).
A lot more of interchange, people getting to know people, specially youth through exchange programs and greatly throu internet. These person to person relationships crossing borders, cultures, religions, ages will create more intimacy and a more concrete sense for world citizenship and cooperation.

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

Culture of Peace Movement will move forward as soon as the pratical solutions exercized on projects and programs along the decade gain respectability and effectivity throu public policies and continous NGOs programs in each possible locality.

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

For 2010 we are working on the World Conference on Culture of Peace and Sustainability in two main fronts: local conferences in cities, towns, communities, and a central event focus on Citizenship and Global Governance. The World Conference intent is to promote a global exercise of articulated action, cooperation, complementarity with the eyes on everyday needs and resources available to children and youth.

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

To gain strength the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace can intensify the cooperation among NGOs, local governments and international organizations aiming the implementation of new economic, eduational, political formats that could create sound basis for the emerging planetary civilization.
