With the coming of the 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 of civilization.
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 Earth Community, The Global Community, the human family. The 21st Century will see limitless links and interrelationships within Earth 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 Earth Community made up of an infinite number of small units and Global Dialogue 2004 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 Earth Community. GCAC proposes a method based on fundamental principles, a sound science, and results are used to propose policies for management of global changes.
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 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
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 to the Global Community, the human family.
To take such a stand has four parts:
We need to take this stand for the survival of our species. For sure, the most important step towards achieving sustainability is to control our population growth. To ensure our survival we must manage our population wisely.
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
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 díêtre of Earth Community Organization(ECO).
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 the Congress to insure a sound future for Earth.
