Global School Alliance 2013-2018-2048
From the schools bringing the world together and gradually realize the Universal Declaration of Human Rights from now to 2048 and so enable the world to be capable for its future!
The Global School Alliance 2013-2018-2048 and all its member schools and members…
teach students, teachers and parents in terms of the values of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to enable them to become active according to their values and act accordingly in their lives. We give them the sense of responsibility, to engage themselves to build a world for the purposes of the Human Rights Declaration. We support them, to get the knowledge, that they themselves are able to control all economic, social and political institutions, whether they respect the commitments of the Declaration in their decisions. As called for in the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights!
The Global School Alliance 2013-2018-2048 advocates that States set a target that by the year 2048, the 100th Anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this Declaration is fully implemented. We demand that the States, in cooperation with the civil society develop and implement national and global reform programs and help each other worldwide! We call on the States, to organize 2018, the 70th Anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights a first state-conference on the implementation of the Declaration and draw then every five years thereafter at Conferences balance and to work on the further implementation of these programs. We are looking primarily to the contact to politicians, parties and other social institutions in the countries and regions of our member schools and work to ensure that the movement is spreading worldwide from there.
The Global School Alliance 2013-2018-2048 and its member schools are calling on not only the States, they also work with even in the development of knowledge on the implementation of the Declaration and to the development of such reform programs for the global implementation of the Declaration on Human Rights. We prepare every year in school activities to on and around the Human Rights of the United Nations, 10 December to inform the public about our work and to encourage them to participate.
We aim to collaborate also working to create the subject of the Declaration of Human Rights, the “one human family” concrete. We want to help to overcome the religious, national, social, ethnic divisions, and also because of different skin colors and even to create contacts between people of different cultures on our planet. We want to bring schools and students in personal contact and build this school contacts, especially between schools in the global South and global North, between Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Confucian and Hindu students, between the majority and minority society in our countries, between the West, the Arab, African and Asian world. We want to increase the capacity of our societies and the world, to find peaceful, just and solidary conflict resolution within the meaning of the Declaration of Human Rights. Today’s foreign language skills and the Internet never gave us in history of mankind opportunities that schools in the world and also the world can come together as today.
Humanity can best ensure that we can use our current major economic and technical possibilities so that everyone can live a decent live through cooperation in global solidarity. Violence and war and the enormous financial costs of States for weapons and armed conflict and the damage caused by war and violence to life and many things consume our resources! We need these resources but urgent to overcome poverty, social insecurity and ignorance and to cope with the major environmental threats such as climate change. If we want to ensure the survival, we need a different kind of security based on cooperation and not the threat of war and violence! This the North-South Commission has already pointed out over 30 years ago. She looks in the global cooperation is the only way to secure the survival of mankind! National policy is not enough to!
And about 60 years ago, the authors of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights after the disaster of the Great Depression, dictatorship, discrimination and extermination of minorities and the Second World War have advocated, that people should no longer first understand themselves as an American, German, British, Russian or African, Chinese and Japanese, but as member of one human family. Based on this understanding the states of the world in 1948 decided in this sense – that humanity creates a common social and international order that all legally secures worldwide a decent life.
The Global School Alliance advocates to take these decisions and warnings seriously, and finally to create in all countries the political will to implement the Universal Declaration of Human Rights gradually up to our suggested data. With our Global Alliance we want to also counteract the tendencies that make people of other countries, religions, nations or minorities responsible for the crisis and seek solutions to their costs. We know from the last century where that leads to. We need solutions in the spirit of Declaration of Human Rights, which lead to the same opportunities and rights for all worldwide. Only this can ensure peace and our survival as mankind!
