Towards discovering humanness from the realm of what has been established to freedom

IV Symposium of the World Centre of Humanist Studies

In this time of great changes, individuals, institutions and societies are in crisis. We are going through times of urgency and possibility.

The paradigms we have been living by do not longer provide suitable answers, and the future is not entirely at sight yet.

Fast transformations wipe away the social landscape in which the preceding generations grew up, creating abysses of incomprehension and insecurity. The old world is already gone, but the new one is still to come.

Charter for a world without violence

This document is the result of several years work of Nobel Peace Laureates and Organizations. It was approved at the 7th World Summit as the “First Draft of the Charter for a World without violence”. The final version of the Charter was approved by Nobel Peace Laureates and Organizations at the 8th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.

Nonviolence: the only way out of the crisis today

[ Fulvio de Vita. 2009 ] The crisis we are going through pervades all the realms of human action. This crisis has been given different names: economic crisis, intercultural crisis, energy crisis, crisis of values, spiritual crisis…

But I think that it is important to note that behind all these crisis, there is a violent attitude by which many individuals and institutions tend to face the deep changes that are occurring in our time.
