International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010) On 10 November 1998, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2001-2010 the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World (resolution 53/25). The Assembly invited NGOs, religious bodies and groups, educational institutions, artists and the media to support the Decade for the benefit of every child of the world.
