It serves as a universal model and blueprint
for a transformed World System
Our conference goals are to:
1. Understand the absolute need for the world to unite spiritually, conceptually, and politically.
2. Understand the role of the Earth Constitution in uniting the world in these ways.
5. Demonstrate the need to promote "Value Based Universal Education System" for the development of "Holistic Global Society."
6. Understand how defense of human rights and resistance to empire can help unite the world to affirm the rule of democratic world law.
One World or None
And so we have to labor and work, and work hard, to give reality to our dreams. Those dreams are for India, but they are also for the world, for all nations and peoples are too closely knit together today for any one of them to imagine they can live apart. Peace is said to be indivisible, so is freedom, so is prosperity now, and so also is disaster in this One World that can no longer be split into isolated fragments.
Jawaharlal Nehru (1947)
