Manifesto 2000

For a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence


There are countless possibilities to put Good Will into practice, certainly also in your vicinity. One example is the Manifesto 2000 of the UNESCO for the International Year for a Culture of Peace.

The Manifesto 2000 was drafted by a group of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates and appeals to the responsibility of each individual to put into practice forms of behaviour and values, which promote a culture of peace - that is Good Will - in everyday life. The Manifesto asks to commit oneself for the realisation of the following six principles:

1. Respect all life

2. Reject violence

3. Share with others

4. Listen to understand

5. Preserve the planet

6. Rediscover solidarity
