The United Nations declared the Year 2000 as the INTERNATIONAL YEAR FOR A CULTURE OF PEACE (Res. 52/15).

What better way to begin this symbolic year of education and transformation than with a worldwide day of peace on January 1, 2000. More than 20 nations have pledged their support and more than 400 organizations in 105 countries have become Co-Sponsors.
