To help celebrate the UN's International Year of Peace, the ICTP Cultural Committee is organising a "Colours of Peace" happening, which is scheduled to take place on 14 April at 5:30 p.m. in the Adriatico Guesthouse, Lower Level. Sponsors include ICTP, Laboratorio dell'Immaginario Scientifico, UNESCO and UNICEF. Among those scheduled to speak are ICTP Director Miguel Virasoro; Roberto Damiani, Deputy-Mayor of Trieste; Paolo Budinich, Founder of Laboratorio dell'Immaginario Scientifico; Nicola Lenoci, Director of the Board of Education in Trieste; Luigi Milazzi, representing the UNESCO Centre in Trieste; and David Sutcliffe, Director of the United World College of the Adriatic. In addition to the unveiling of a painting exhibition, the choir of the United World College will perform a brief concert. UNICEF and UNESCO will also have an information counter. The highlight of the event will be the electronic signing of "Manifesto 2000," a UNESCO initiative for the collection of 100 million signatures for peace worldwide that will be presented to the UN General Assembly in September. Computer hook-ups will give all those attending the event an opportunity to sign the manifesto.
