The International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010)
Events and Trends
In keeping with naming decades (cf. 1990s "the Nineties", 1980s "the Eighties", etc.), the decade of the 2000s is named "the Noughties" by some (referring to the nought, or zero, as the decade indicator, but the word-play on "naughty" is intentional).
