WMY2000 Newsletter 2
UNESCO will renew in 1995, as part of the CDE activities, its help to
developing countries. Further developments are under study.
Philately and WMY 2 000
A proposal, supported by the Société Mathématique de France and
the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles,
to edit for the year 2 000 four or six stamps with the effigy of French
mathematicians has been submitted to La Poste in order to illustrate, on the
French side, the World Mathematical Year 2 000. We hope that such an initiative
could be taken in other countries all over the world.
How to use
Many libraries, and individuals, all around the world, have asked for copies of
the Newsletter Nb. 1. We thank you very much for your interest, and we shall
add your demand to our mailing list.

National Committee or the Learned Society in your country, in order to avoid a
too huge centralization of demands.
Besides, some National Committees have offered to translate the Newsletter ;
this also could help to circulate ideas and initiatives !
Call for initiative
We hope many mathematical Societies will relay the Declaration of Rio de
We shall mention all the initiatives all over the world in the forthcoming
This Newsletter, sent to all the National Committees and National Adhering
Organizations of IMU, can be reproduced and we hope it will be widely spread.
