...........Despatch considers it "Countdown" not "Countup".

CountUP to 2000 -

"Building a Better World Together, 1 Day at a Time..."

In his State of the Union Address, President Clinton
suggested we use the 1000 Days to the Year 2000
as an opportunity to work together to build a better future.

April 6, 1997 was the start of the 1000 Day
Count-UP to the Year 2000.
Celebrations for a POSITIVE future
took place all around the world.

1000 Ideas

For A Better World

by Dr. Rober Muller, Chancellor University for Peace
from the book 2000 Ideas For A Better World (c) 1997

A Man Of Peace

Dr. Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, and Chancellor for the University For Peace, received the 1989 UNESCO Prize for Peace Education. Dr. Muller says his greatest honor is not this award, or being decorated by the Pope, or even his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, but the remark of a custodian at at school named after him who said, 'In all my years here I have never seen two children fight'

There are 29 Robert Muller Schools, and Dr. Muller is called, "the father of Global Education" with his world core curriculum. Robert believes that his approach to education works as a model for global education in an interdependent world. In his acceptance speech for the UNESCO Peace Prize, Muller urged governments to take peace education seriously, for the adoption of the World Core Curriculum, and for increased support of international schools.

In honor of the 1000 Day CountUP to the Year 2000, which began on April 6, 1997, Dr. Muller is proud to offer 1000 ideas - 1 for each day of the CountUP - for building a better world. Each week 7 new ideas from Dr. Muller will be posted. We can make EACH DAY count... one day at a time...


WHEREAS: Peace begins with each of us, when we respect ourselves,
each other, and the planet we share, and try to work out our problems peacefully;

WHEREAS: We can help create peaceful communities
by focusing on how we interact with our families, our neighbors and co-workers;

WHEREAS: We can lessen violence and separation when we pull together for a common goal;

WHEREAS: A global movement is growing to ask the world to declare one day of peace on January 1, 2000;

NOW, THEREFORE I do hereby proclaim January 1, 2000 as:

and urge all citizens to celebrate the Year 2000 as THE YEAR FOR PEACE ON EARTH,
and to recognize the importance of promoting peace and harmony in our community,
each and every day, one day at a time.

The Peace On Earth Movement has awakened...

On September 13, 1996 the first Global Conference of the WORLD PEACE 2000 Network met at the United Nations to discuss the possibility of making peace on earth a reality in the 21st century.

Representatives from nearly 30 different countries attended this inspiring day of unity, inspiration and hope.

This worldwide network of individuals, groups and organizations is dedicated to helping promote a resolution before the United Nations to declare a 24-hour world cease-fire on January 1, 2000; a Declaration of Peace culminating on January 1, 2000 as WORLD PEACE DAY; and the year 2000 as The INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF PEACE.
