The forty-one chapters of '''Agenda 21''' [http://www.un-documents.net/agenda21.htm] - the landmark agreement reached at the 1992 '''Earth Summit''' in Rio de Janeiro - together with references to education in Agenda 21 [http://habitat.igc.org/agenda21/eea.htm] offer an indication of the scope that a comprehensive curriculum needs to cover.

=== International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World ===
 +
 
 +
Just over the halfway point of the '''International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World''' (2001-2010), many of the visions and signs of an immense outpouring of hope and expectations for a Millennium of Peace may appear to have been "blown away" by the destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center on Septemer 11, 2001 and the subsequent declaration and progressive escalation  of a global war on terror.
 +
 
 +
War is clearly unsustainable - and most acutely so when conducted with overwhelming force and massive destruction; where massive areas of land, including critical wetlands are contaminated for many millennia with highly-radioactive depleted uranium, whose toxicity represents a threat to the life and health of people born and living in the contaminated areas.
 +
 
 +
In its attention to the Decade for a Culture of Peace, will pay particular attention to key elements of a culture of peace: Peace within our selves, peace between people, and peace with the earth, and to the an evolving set of values, traditions, principles and practices that are increasingly beng articulated and embraced by representatives of diverse faith - and non-faith - in which love and respect for all people is extended to embrace love and respect for the Earth and for the entrie community of species and sentient beings.

==== International Day of Peace ====
 +
 
 +
In its resolution 55/282 [http://www.un-documents.net/a55r282.htm] of September 7, 2001, the UN General Assembly established September 21 as the '''International Day of Peace'''.  Since 982, it had been observed on observed, on the third Tuesday of September every year. The International Day of Peace has been very widely observed in local, national and global events, and for many in the NGO community - and particularly among NGOs affiliated with the UN Department of Public Information - is considered the high point of the year and a key time, following the Annual DPI/NGO Conference and at the beginning of a new General Assembly session, to uphold the preamble, purposes and principles of the United Nations [http://www.un-documents.net/ch-ppp.htm].

==== Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence ====
 +
 
 +
The '''Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence''' - January 30 through April 4 - commemorates the deaths of '''Mohandas K. "Mahatma" Gandhi''' and '''Rev. Dr. Matin Luther King, Jr.'''. The Gandhi-King Seasons for Nonviolence web site [http://www.gandhi-king-season.net] web site was initially developed for the '''New York Task Force for the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence''' and has continued to evolve under the auspices of '''Seasons of Peace Cooperation Circles''' [http://www.seasons-of-peace.net]. The database-generated web site incorporates a ten week curriculum in Nonviolence and the teachings of Gandhi and King, and incorporates a set of form-based templates for participants to share information and comments.
 +
 
 +
Annual events commemorating the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence are held at United Nations headquarters in New York, and around the world.

==== Peace Cubes ====
 +
 
 +
The twin Virtual Light & Colour Cubes - dedicated as '''Peace Cubes''' at the United Nations Peace Bell [http://habitat.igc.org/one-light/dedicate.htm] on March 20, 1997 at an Earthday on the Equinox on the Internet ceremony - are a remarkable and fascinating virtual, elementary mathematical entities in the form of cubes with dimensions of red, green and blue - the primary colours of light.
 +

Each cube contains all colours, and the colour at any point in the cube is equal to the sum of the coordinates of the point within a three-dimensional mathematics of colour. The sum of the coordinates is expressed as '''#rrggbb''' - i.e. it is based on the '''HTML''' languuge of colour,  a concatenation of three two-digit hexadecimal numbers between 00 and ff (0 and 63 in decimal terms), that represent, respectively, the intensity of red, green and blue light.

 +
The visual effect of mathematically-defined cubes are striking - even in the two-dimensional images that have been generated to date - and the six faces of the virtual light and colour cube can be understood as the six faces of a three-dimensional colour space.

NGO Committee on Education

The NGO Committee on Education is a substantive committee of CONGO - the Conference Of Non-Governmental Organizations in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations [1]. The Committee has made a commitment to supporting the United Nations Decade on Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) as well as related decades, and is developing a network of web sites to this end. The information architecture of the networks is based on properties and principles of a networked information economy, and on a prototype open source and Creative Commons framework for organizational domains, with the goal of gathering, compiling and sharing a vast collective wealth of knowledge - and building the foundations of a Common Wealth, co-created in a rapidly-evolving intelligent networked universe in which abundance is not constrained by the laws of conservation of mass and energy.

United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development

Launched in April 2005, the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development [2] presents an extensive and vital challenge. The forty-one chapters of Agenda 21 [3] - the landmark agreement reached at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro - together with references to education in Agenda 21 [4] offer an indication of the scope that a comprehensive curriculum needs to cover.

International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World

Just over the halfway point of the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010), many of the visions and signs of an immense outpouring of hope and expectations for a Millennium of Peace may appear to have been "blown away" by the destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center on Septemer 11, 2001 and the subsequent declaration and progressive escalation of a global war on terror.

War is clearly unsustainable - and most acutely so when conducted with overwhelming force and massive destruction; where massive areas of land, including critical wetlands are contaminated for many millennia with highly-radioactive depleted uranium, whose toxicity represents a threat to the life and health of people born and living in the contaminated areas.

In its attention to the Decade for a Culture of Peace, will pay particular attention to key elements of a culture of peace: Peace within our selves, peace between people, and peace with the earth, and to the an evolving set of values, traditions, principles and practices that are increasingly beng articulated and embraced by representatives of diverse faith - and non-faith - in which love and respect for all people is extended to embrace love and respect for the Earth and for the entrie community of species and sentient beings.

International Day of Peace

In its resolution 55/282 [5] of September 7, 2001, the UN General Assembly established September 21 as the International Day of Peace. Since 982, it had been observed on observed, on the third Tuesday of September every year. The International Day of Peace has been very widely observed in local, national and global events, and for many in the NGO community - and particularly among NGOs affiliated with the UN Department of Public Information - is considered the high point of the year and a key time, following the Annual DPI/NGO Conference and at the beginning of a new General Assembly session, to uphold the preamble, purposes and principles of the United Nations [6].

Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence

The Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence - January 30 through April 4 - commemorates the deaths of Mohandas K. "Mahatma" Gandhi and Rev. Dr. Matin Luther King, Jr.. The Gandhi-King Seasons for Nonviolence web site [7] web site was initially developed for the New York Task Force for the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence and has continued to evolve under the auspices of Seasons of Peace Cooperation Circles [8]. The database-generated web site incorporates a ten week curriculum in Nonviolence and the teachings of Gandhi and King, and incorporates a set of form-based templates for participants to share information and comments.

Annual events commemorating the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence are held at United Nations headquarters in New York, and around the world.

Peace Cubes

The twin Virtual Light & Colour Cubes - dedicated as Peace Cubes at the United Nations Peace Bell [9] on March 20, 1997 at an Earthday on the Equinox on the Internet ceremony - are a remarkable and fascinating virtual, elementary mathematical entities in the form of cubes with dimensions of red, green and blue - the primary colours of light.

Each cube contains all colours, and the colour at any point in the cube is equal to the sum of the coordinates of the point within a three-dimensional mathematics of colour. The sum of the coordinates is expressed as #rrggbb - i.e. it is based on the HTML languuge of colour, a concatenation of three two-digit hexadecimal numbers between 00 and ff (0 and 63 in decimal terms), that represent, respectively, the intensity of red, green and blue light.

The visual effect of mathematically-defined cubes are striking - even in the two-dimensional images that have been generated to date - and the six faces of the virtual light and colour cube can be understood as the six faces of a three-dimensional colour space.
