Culture of Peace News

 Bulletin of World Report on the Culture of Peace for August 2011mailto:%7Ccoordinator@cpnn-world.org to cpnn
Despite the absurd culture of war that pervades the world, when we read about your activities in CPNN, you show us that the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace continues to grow everywhere. It may not be evident, but history is moving!
Thank you for your many responses to the June bulletin. You will find some of the articles that you sent below. Click on any photo to go to its full article and discussion.
Thank you for assigning several new reporters to write about the news from your organization. In any case, you are always invited to send an article on the submit article page. Please consider also writing about other culture of peace news and initiatives, as well as films, books and music that promote any of the 8 domains of the culture of peace listed below as defined by the United Nations resolution.
CPNN is now publishing articles in French, Spanish and Portuguese as well as the English translation, so do not hesitate to write in one of those languages. Soon we hope to have the entire website displayed in all those languages.
Note: if the photos do not show up, you may also get the bulletin at http://cpnn-world.org/bulletin/bulletin-11-8.html.
