9th Symposium of the WCHS. Economy for freedom

Year

The dimension of the current crisis shows that the current economic system - based on a productivist and consumerist model dependent on the domination of the great international financial capital - does not work; that it is taking the terrestrial ecosystem that supports life to the limit of the point of no return; that is governed by the value of money; that it sits in the paradigm that grants capital the power to decide on the direction of profit, while the worker only receives the salary; that it has a skewed distributive matrix of capital and that leads to usury, speculation and the gene

9th Symposium of the WCHS. Communication in the 21st century

Year

The world is in crisis, however, there are overcoming actions that, driven by the people, cross borders.

9th Symposium of the WCHS. Social ecology axis: Climate and ecological crisis, what boundaries of thought do we need to overcome? 

Year

The evident crisis of civilization that humanity is going through, as well as the reality of climate change, place the human species before ecological limits which, if they were to be exceeded, will continue to seriously disturb living conditions throughout the planet.

Year

According to a set of beliefs that have been imposed on us, money, or a more updated version of it, would solve all the problems of the planet. It was enough to believe in it, and the sufferings and pains of humanity would finally be defeated. According to this, money would be the only thing worth pursuing.

Nonviolence: the only way out of the crisis today

Year

[ 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.
