In this millennium, the affairs of humanity appeared to be unfolding in more profound ways.
Cause and effect is now more apparent and happening more quickly. Those
of you who are educated and aware will find themselves urgently called
upon to action for the good of all humanity.
Global link-ups are already happening at a fast rate.
Business leaders are much more sensitive to the greater, wider needs
for their expertise and are already in the process of creating a new kind
One of the most important factors in our lives is the inter-connection
we have to others, to other countries. Through these connections you will
be able to create changes for good on a global scale.
We must now all become linked to others in faraway places on a much
deeper level if we are to work together to keep our planet healthy,
productive and hospitable for all people and living things.
As your awareness of this global need deepens you will want to join
with others to see that good changes happen.
Right now you can use your skills, your knowledge, your abilities, to
realize how your strengths can help bring about the best kind of changes
in the world by connecting with us in our aim to promote sustainable development
on four major levels: the land, the richness of our land, our economic
endeavours and the welfare of all our peoples.
We believe the world is at a turning point. We can no longer perceive
ourselves as a People who could survive alone and a People who does not
need anyone else. We belong and depend to a much larger group, that of the Global Community, the human family. The 21st Century will see limitless links and interrelationships
within the Global Community.
This third millennium is a new challenge. New standards, goals and objectives have to be defined. Firm universal
guidelines are essentials in keeping the world healthy. Already we notice
new ways of thinking being embraced, new behaviors and attitudes adopted. Global ethics are required to do business and deal with one another to sustain Earth.
Indeed, we are becoming the Global Community made up of an infinite
number of small units and Global Dialogue 2016 will bring us all together.
Every human being lives within "a Global Community." This is
his (her) global private community.
One imagines he is inside a glass bubble ~ everything he can see from this glass bubble is his
own "global community." Wherever we go, we are inside "a Global Community." Everything, every living creature there, interacts one upon
the other. Influences inter-weave and are responsible for causes and effects. We are worlds within worlds orbiting in and out of one
another's space, having their being. This interaction can be planned and executed in a caring, considerate manner
so that all may exist and not destroy the other. The Global Community Assessment Centre (GCAC)
is the centre whose objectives are to
measure, assess, and integrate the interactions and present results to
the Global Community. GCAC proposes a method based on fundamental
principles, a sound science, and results are used to propose policies for management of global changes.
Building global communities require understanding of global problems this generation is facing. There are several major problems: conflicts and wars,
no tolerance and compassion for one another, world overpopulation, human activities critically endangering the survival of all life on our planet,
as population increases the respect and value of a human life is in decline,
protection and prevention for global health, scarcity of resources and drinking water, poverty, Fauna and Flora species disappearing at a fast rate,
global warming and global climate change, global pollution, deforestation, permanent lost of the Earth's genetic heritage,
and the destruction of the global life-support systems and the eco-systems of the planet. We need to build global
communities for all life on the planet. We need to build global communities that will manage themselves with the understanding of the above problems.
Perhaps the greatest change in our way of life will be the acceptance of the criteria to obtain the Global Community Citizenship.
Every single human being must deal responsibly with the affairs going on in his (her) own "glass bubble" ~ when a person takes personal responsibility for his own affairs ~ he becomes empowered as a person. He can then reach beyond his own property and family, and help to work with others living in and around, even a part of the local community he lives in ~ the villages, the town community, the surrounding territory, and so on.
The key is personal responsibility.
Therefore the individual is the important element, one who takes responsibility
for his community. This individual cares about jobs, homes, streets, the
Controlling our overpopulated planet has now become a necessity.
World overpopulation at the turning point requires
each and every one of us to take a stand on rights and on being a part of Global Community, the human family. Today we are not asking women to have only one child as is done in China. No! First of all it does not work in China. Their population is still increasing.
We are asking it to be socially acceptable for women to have the freedom
of having or not having children. We are asking it for women to have
the freedom to say no I dont want children, or yes I want to
raise a family, and to make that socially acceptable. For this to work,
women must also be given equal rights to men in every way. The Chinese
family policy does not work because women are not given the freedom to
choose for themselves and the equal rights to men. Women are 'persons'
just like men. Those men and women who choose to raise a family of one
or more children will be given support if needed.
The effect of such change in our ways will be acceptance of being a
part of the global community and that each one of us is doing things for
the good of all. In this way, the heart, mind and spirit of the Global
Community will be in the forefront of positive actions to ensure
When a group of ordinary people realized they, personally, will make the changes they need in their fields, in their village.
They can then find ways to bring these changes for all. There is a wisdom in the ways of very humble people that needs to be used.
Every humble person deserves to have ideas respected, the courage to develop his own life for the better. Sound solutions to
help manage and sustain Earth will very likely be found this way. Everyone can help assess the needs of the planet now
( measuring sustainable development ) and propose sound solutions for its proper management, present and future
( managing sustainable development ).
Sound solutions to all our problems will have to be researched and developed
and made available to everyone on the Internet. This is la raison d’être
of the Global Community.
Sound solutions made available to all Global Communities should insure
a sound future for Earth. Exchange of creative solutions to the varied
community problems around the world will benefit us all on many levels
~ socially, economically and ecologically. We can all help to manage Earth this way. We invite you to participate
in Global Dialogue 2016 and its Global Exhibition to insure a sound future for Earth.
