Initiatives for the Annual Meeting 2010

We don't need, right now, a hundred initiatives. A few simple steps will take us a very great distance towards vanquishing the primary threat to civilized life on earth.

Click here for a list of all of this year's initiatives, and here for an overview of the Annual Meeting 2010.

 

Human Rights Initiative

The global guarantee of food, drinking water, shelter, healthcare, education, as basic human rights that must be provided free to all.

For 500 years, third world countries have been prevented from achieving sustainable development and have been maintained in extreme poverty in order for the global North to continue accessing the human and natural resources of these countries.

If the countries of the global South had been allowed to develop, it would have created a demand for those same resources for that development, therefore creating competition with the countries of the North.

The only way for these countries to achieve a sustainable development is by guaranteeing food, drinking water, shelter, healthcare, education, as basic human rights that must be provided free to all their people. This applies as well to the countries of people living in the North as well.
