I recently returned from London where I attended a meeting titled “A New Humanism for the 21st Century” organized by the Chairman of the British Arab Network, Dr. Wafik Moustafa. Those attending heard speeches that would bring a new progressive view of how nations must deal with active dissidents. The United Nations was formed to work together on ways to collaborate in dealing with governments that raise the level of humankind.
The leadership in UNESCO is essential in representing coordinated efforts worldwide to seek peace.
I had the good fortune of being one of the speakers, speaking to achieving peace and reconciliation in all areas of conflict around the world. I pointed out how we should strive to improve social services for human rights in civic society.
Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO is seen as an outstanding leader in forging a common understanding of the issues promoting global harmony. To secure peace in the world was a major focus of the group. The role I played was to bring ideas to diplomacy that are creative, flexible and democratic to which a new world must adapt.
