Interim Earth Government
(for a model based on a democratically elected Earth government)
Earth has long been waiting for a truly global governing
body based on universal values, human rights, global concepts and democracy.
Earth Government might as well be created now, there is no longer any reason
to wait. We are the Earth Community and we will form the
Government. Earth management is a priority and is a duty by every responsible
person. A democratically elected Earth Government will now be formed, and
we want you to reflect on future effects of such an event on the history
of humanity. Certainly one will expect extraordinary changes: a reorganizing
of human activities all over the planet; participation by all societies
on the planet in solving local and global problems; new alliances forming;
north meeting with south (eradication of poverty will be the price to pay
to get votes from the south) in order to gather more votes within the newly
created Earth Government to satisfy power struggles between European, Asian
and Western countries; adoption of democratic principles, human rights,
global concepts, and universal values by every human being; expansion of
consciousness; gathering and coordinating of forces to resolve social and
political problems in a peaceful way (no more conflicts or wars); gathering
and coordinating of forces (technologies, scientific research, exploration
work, human resources, etc.) to resolve global problems such as global
climate, environment, availability of resources, poverty, employment, etc.
Thousands more changes!
Let your heart and mind reflect on 'the good' of a democratically
elected Earth Government. Everyone is part of Earth Community by birth
and therefore everyone has a right to vote. Everyone should be given a
chance to vote. If you live in a developing country this time you will
have a vote, human rights like all of us, you will be part of Earth Community,
and we will stand by you. Decisions will be made democratically. You will
finally have a voice and a friend, many friends, within Earth Government
and Earth Community. Your lives have values just like all of ours.
The formation of global ministries is the most important event in human history. Humanity sees the need to manage the world affairs in several aspects of our lives: energy, agriculture, environment, health, Earth resources, Earth management,
security and safety, emergencies and rescues, trade, banks, speculation on world markets, peace, family and human development, water resources protection, youth, education, justice, science and technology, finance, human resources, ethics, human
and Earth rights, sustainable development, industry, and manufacturing products, etc. Global ministries will be given power to rule
themselves in harmony with each other. The WTO will not be the only global ministry that can rule on cases related to trade. The Earth Community Organization, the Human Family, is calling for the immediate formation of the Earth Ministry of Health. The globalization of trade, the extensive
mouvement of people all over the world, the increase of poverty and diseases in developing countries and all over the world, have caused pathogens and
exotic diseases to migrate over enormous distances and now, are an increasing threat to local ecosystems and communities, economies and health of
every human being and all life. The Earth Community Organization, the Human Family, is calling this threat of the upmost importance and
must be dealt with immediately by every nation. We must manage health in the world. We are calling for the immediate creation of the Earth Ministry of Health.
During the past decades various changes have taken place in political, economic and social
institutions. Economic reforms, changes in national policies, and global concerns have contributed to redefine the roles of these institutions for
Sustainable Development. The 'New Age Movements' are social, political and religious movements in the sense of having a broad organizational structure and an ideology aimed at
governing. The environmental movements within the New Age Movements express the concerns of groups of people regarding depletion of water, climate change aspects, degradation of land and other changes in ecosystems affecting traditional
patterns of natural resource exploitation. The Earth Community has taken the role of helping these groups in protecting and managing the
environment by coordinating efforts. Earth Environmental Governance is the most importance and urgent challenge of the Earth Community.
The Earth Ministry of the Environment is proposing a meeting of all the Ministers of the Environment. Each country in the world will
send their Minister of the Environment to meet during the global dialogue on Earth Management - all Peoples together.
The roundtable discussion will also include experts from interested groups, environmental institutions, policy specialists from non-governmental organizations, and
the public. There is a need to centralize and coordinate efforts into one Ministry of the Environment: the Earth Ministry of the Environment. Discussion about the financial support
will be a priority. A comprehensive and reliable system will be proposed to coordinate efforts from all over the world. Anyone willing to participate in the
discussion roundtable may send an abstract/research paper now.
Other topics for discussion:
a) Involvement of major groups in monitoring, assessment and early warning
b) Major environmental challenges of the 21st Century
c) Civil society involvement
d) Responsibility and accountability of the private sector
e) Global environmental policy-making
Earth Environmental Governance can only be achieved successfully within the larger context of Sustainable Developent and Earth Management. All aspects are
inter-related and affect one another.
A healthy environment is essential to long term prosperity and well-being, and citizens in Earth Community demand a high level of ecological protection. This is the 'raison d'etre' of the Scale of Human and Earth Rights.
Primordial human rights are those human rights that individuals have by virtue of their very existence as human beings: to live,
eat, drink fresh water, breath clean air, and have shelter. These rights are separate categories than ecological rights, the right
of the greatest number of people, economic rights, social rights, cultural rights and religious rights. Ecological and primordial human rights
are the only rights that have existed unchanged throughout the evolutionary origin of our species. Any major change would have
threatened our very existence. All other human rights listed here are rights created by human beings and can be changed depending
of new circumstances; they are not stagnant but are rather flexible and adaptive, and they can evolve. Ecological and primordial human rights
of this generation and of future generations are therefore much more important than any other human rights existing now and in the future.
In this way the Scale of Human and Earth Rights gives us a sense of direction for future planning and managing of the Earth.
Earth management is now well defined and becomes a goal to achieve. We no longer waste energy and resources in things that are
It has also become a necessity of establishing the Earth Resources Ministry that will be assessing, compiling, managing and protecting Earth resources, and the Earth Court of Justice prosecuting cases involving crimes related to the relentless misused of the Earth resources.
Between now and August 2002 we will have created the interim
Earth Government for Earth Community. The interim Earth
Government for Earth Community will govern for as long as necessary to
create the democratic structure of the government and put in place the
voting system that it requires. Officers and Ministers of Earth Government
will be required to work as a team. Mr. Joseph-Germain Dufour was elected
the first President during the World Congress. Those interested
to become officers or ministers please submit your CV, three references,
and a five pages essay on why you want to become an officer or a minister.

Other minister and officer positions may be created as

Several criteria will be taken into account: qualifications of the candidate
for leadership, past record as a good citizen, no criminal records, your
own financial support (we dont have any funds to pay anyone and for
anything), and proven experience and competence in the position. Candidates
work strictly on a volunteer basis. You are also required to have accepted
in your heart and mind universal values, global concepts, democratic principles,
and human rights as obtained and defined in the previous global dialogue.
The immediate goals of the Interim Earth Government are to define and develop each Ministry as explained in the President's Message section.
The reason why I have decided to choose members of my Executive is because I am working on a specific
Earth Government model, the democratically elected Earth Government. Some people may not agree on its foundation. They are welcome to propose
their own model during the global dialogue in August 2002.
All of those who decide to join me will be part of a major research paper to be published on the Earth Community Organization and Earth Government
websites. Our work will be an important part of the Proceedings. If it happens that our research was adopted by the elected representatives than we would become
founders of Earth Government.
