Important Testimony About Pierre Weil

Robert MULLER (UNESCO Education for Peace Prize winner; ex-Vice-Secretary-General of the UM and Chancellor of the Peace University of Costa Rica).

"The Peace University, created by the United Nations in Costa Rica, expresses its thanks to Pierre Weil, for his work as the Head of the City of Peace Foundation and of the International Holistic University of Brasilia.

Dr. Weil's contribution is remarkable in regard to the fundamental issue of our days: The Education for Peace.

As he stresses in his work, after centuries or even millennia of silence, education for peace, at last, blossoms on our planet.

...Pierre Weil and myself, we are deeply thankful to UNESCO for its benevolent acceptance of these experiments on universal education...

...I, myself, after long meditations and observations, was leaded to research a holistic approach... It was this synthesis effort that brought me the UNESCO Education for Peace Prize, in 1989...

In the name of the Peace University, I express my sincere gratitude to Pierre Weil and to UNESCO. May God permit this work to become the golden key of a new education as we enter the Third Millennium."
