Project Information
Welcome to New Songs For Peace
This UNESCO-endorsed project is intended to encourage people to think about peace, talk about peace, and write a new song that we will collect and self-publish in a book. These songs will promote peace, cultural acceptance and understanding for those who work towards peace throughout the world.

Culture of Peace Decade In 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 has, in turn, called upon non-governmental organizations (NGOs), religious bodies, educational institutions, artists and the media for their support. Its aim is to introduce the thought of peace, foment discussion as well as encourage poetry and songwriting and therein touch the lives of every child in the world.

With individual advocates such as UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the support of global organizations like UNESCO, New Songs For Peace will make its contribution to peace through the musical expression of international artists.
