The new Global Community web site now automatically adapts its layout to different screen sizes, orientations, and resolutions, and for various desktop browsers and mobile devices such as the iPhone, Android phone, and tablets. Click on GCactivities to visit the new web site. Please do test it.
But if you use a mobile device such as the iPhone, do not click on any link on the new web site as the contents were designed only for desktop computers. Many
of those links will ask you to download an animation of several MBs in size and might freeze your device. Global Community is still in infancy when in comes to designing Apps for mobil devices.
So you can read what is on the new website but dont try to link on the contents with a cell phone.
For those with tablets and desktop computers, now you can read our Current News and Newsletters, watch our animations and play our video games and Apps anywhere safe you go (please not while driving). We have a series of new animations and Apps in plan for this year all of which are aimed at educating this generation and the coming generations in the ways of Global Community. From now on we will also do our very best to design new Apps with mobil devices in mind.
Please help us evaluate our new web site by completing this short survey. Click on SurveyForm on the above header. We will use your feedback to determine how we can improve our services to you. Thank you for volunteering your time.
Wherever you go, you are inside a "global" community. Every thing, every living creature there, interacts one upon the other. Influences inter-weave and are responsible for causes and effects. Worlds within worlds orbiting in and out of one another's space, having their being. Every Global Citizen is part of the solution to the challenges of globalisation. In this way, the private sector in partnership with civil society can help realize a common vision: allowing a global equitable and peaceful development and a more stable and inclusive global economy
It was in 1985 that I first defined the concept of Global Community and further refined it over the years afterwards. Gradually, I defined several original concepts during the second half of the 80s and throughout the 1990s with my wife Virginie. They are now widely used.
Humanity's new vision of the world is about seeing human activities on the planet through global commons.
We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions. We need to unite by recognizing our common desire and need for a harmonious society— a society in which we and our children and families and friends and communities can all live our lives in peace and harmony. Regardless of our race or religion, we all want and need such social harmony. Without respect for people of different races or ethnicities or religions, how can we have a peaceful and harmonious society or world? And without a harmonious society, how can there be the necessary economic development and atmosphere conducive to spiritual happiness and self-realization?
Today, Global Community promotes several methods of teaching to children and youths as they are more likely to absorb and retain the internal structures needed to bring about Peace to future generations. We need to educate the coming generations with good principles, being compassionate, social harmony and global sustainability being some of them. The Scale of Global Rights is the best educating tool to bring about the change the people of the world need to accept for their own survival.
Global Community is calling upon global citizens and all peoples and governments of the world to rally with us for the good of all. Unity in diversity! Getting to know one another and ourselves as one humanity. Global Citizenship is given to anyone who accepts the Criteria of the Global Citizenship as a way of life.
Our Global Peace Movement is about the courage to live a life in a harmonious peace order and showing by example, thus preventing poverty, wars, terror and violence.
The formation of Global Ministries in government is the most important event in human history. Global Community will make an extensive and continuous request to the government of each nation of the world to form a Ministry of Global Peace in their organization.
Global Peace Village , a long time project of the Global Community, has always been about the teaching of Peace in the world but this time using animations, and has a history of dealing with individual communities, knowing their problems and concerns, and making a difference for the better, while Global Peace Earth reaches all of humanity, collects data from all aspects of life, makes assessment concerning what is the best way forward for all life on the planet.
Earth needs urgently a world system of governance to manage development worldwide. We see the IMF and World Bank, along with the banking institutions worldwide, controlling people from most nations, telling governments what they should do or not do, creating poverty for most people, and acquiring the heritage assets of people and nations for profiting.
We define Earth governance as the traditions and institutions by which authority in a country is exercised for the common good. Earth governance is a balance between the rights of states with rights of people, and the interests of nations with the interests of the Global Community, the human family, the global civil society.
Global Community has been promoting the formation of several global ministries for the proper governance of Earth. Global ministries are world wide organizations just like the World Trade Organization (WTO) for trade and therefore should have the same power to rule on cases.
Humanity sees the need to manage world affairs in several aspects of our lives. Today, earquakes, cyclones and other natural disasters, as well as human made global destruction and disasters, require a rapid and efficient response from the world to help those in needs. All of this can be effectively accomplished when the organizational structure of the government of all nations includes a Ministry of Global Peace and a Ministry of Essential Services.
Developing socio-economic activities that can thrive under anticipated climate changes can help realize some of the benefits of climate change. Collectively, such actions will help reduce human vulnerability to climate change, and hence raise the threshold at which such change becomes dangerous.
There are two fundamental types of response to the risks of climate change:
1. reducing the rate and magnitudes of change through mitigating the causes, and
2. reducing the harmful consequences through anticipatory adaptation.
Global Community has embraced a rapidly accelerating process of scientific and technological change that can benefit the majority of humankind. This process explores the politics and economics of efforts to ensure that new technologies are used in socially responsible ways. Global Community program explores ways of encouraging a more socially responsible use of science and technology in a number of fields, including information technology, biotechnology and genetic engineering. It also explores corporate responsibility, often generated in relation to social and environmental issues. Global Community has come to realize that peoples live in a world of increasing interdependence and our faith is intrinsically related to the preservation of the global life-support systems for the survival of humanity and all forms of life. Global Community is calling upon scientists, tehnologists, technicians, engineers and all professionals to:
a) create positive actions in their own fields to use the knowledge of science in a responsible manner, and
b) find sound solutions to human needs and to fulfill aspirations without misusing human knowledge.
The capacity of the world's oceans, continents, and atmosphere to absorb the substances we must dispose of is limited. Even as a waste or pollution disposal site, the world is finite. The global ecosystem is already under considerable stress. The Earth's ability to accept, recycle, cleanse, and dissipate waste has already been stressed. An increase of world population will only make everything worse and add stress to living. Peace will be with all Peoples on Earth when all Peoples manage instabilities existing amongst themselves, and between themselves and the Earth life-support systems. The three different faces of warfare that cause instabilities worldwide are:
1. the military and its armament industry,
2. uncontrolled economics and overconsumption, and
The Global Community Assessment Centre (GCAC) is the assessment Centre for the Global Community. It was created to give individuals or organizations help and/or advice about negative events happening in their communities which cause concern to people, resources, industry or the environment. GCAC is also the Centre of assessment of local/global indicators about the four major quality systems: Environment, People, Economic Development and the Availability of Resources. The assessment of these indicators will result in giving the Global Community a sense of direction as to ensure a sound future for Earth. No one really understands what assessment processes have been most effective in the past, or why others have failed. GCAC’s goal is to explore how assessment of local/global indicators can better link scientific understanding with the progressive implementation of effective policy solutions to global changes. Achieving this integration is fundamental. The Global Community needs this annual assessment to effectively manage global changes.
Global Community Assessment Centre ( GCAC ) for discussion and joint action on issues of local and global concerns and for the restoration of the planet, our home. GCAC offers services to the Global Community. Theory, measurement, valuation and management of Sustainable Development and the Scale of Values and measurement of the Gross Environmental Sustainable Development Index (GESDI)
Implemented through Global Community with built-in mechanisms for optimum input and oversight guaranteed to all member-states, Global Community offers a practicable starting point for achieving:
(a) a healthful, sustainable environment for every global citizen,
(b) universal health care, publicly supported,
(c) education for all based upon individual capability,
(d) creative/productive employment for every global citizen, and
(e) post-retirement security.
This effort will lead over time to an escalation of human values and symbiotical relationships transcending money centered economics.
