International Year for the Culture of Peace: Peace is in our hands
The United Nations designated UNESCO as lead agency for the observance the International Year for the Culture of Peace. A public awareness campaign was launched, based of Manifesto 2000, encouraging people to sign a commitment drafted by a group of Nobel Peace Prize laureates. A special logo was chosen from some 250 proposals, featuring a peace symbol of two joined hands, the result of a collaboration between German artist Barbara Blickle and Spanish graphic designer Luis Sardá. The surrounding phrases are the six pledges of the manifesto.
