The Global Endorsement of Declarations for Human Rights of World Citizens and Peace consists of three very important declarations:

  1. “Love of the World A Declaration of Peace” declared after the three massive earthquakes in 1999 ( Columbia , Turkey , and Taiwan ). Appeal to the world that we should respect life, we should protect nature, we should love ourselves and others, and we should love our own countries as well as other people’s countries.
  2. “Peace Declaration” declared in the 2001 World Citizenship Assembly (WCA) by more than 600 delegates from over 50 countries.
  3. “Declaration of Human Rights for World Citizens” declared in 2002. Peace originates from the harmonious coexistence between human and nature. Human rights originate from the mutual respect among people. We treat love as our momentums and culture exchanges as the power to unite people’s hearts. So we as world citizens can together enjoy freedoms, our human rights be protected, and peace be achieved.

These three declarations result in profound and tremendous influence on human history. In light of the importance, UN/NGO Association of World Citizens, the Federation of World Peace and Love, and the Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy have invited friends from all walks of life to endorse the declarations by signing their names and nationalities, and making a wish for love and peace. About two million people from 158 countries have endorsed the declarations in 2004.

During the 57th Annual DPI/NGO Conference in 2004 , in a presenting ceremony held at the Millennium UN Plaza Hotel, Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, Honorary Vice President and member of Advisory Board of Association of World Citizens UN/NGO/DPI/ECOSOC, presented an endorsement CD of 2 million signatures to Joan Levy, Chair, NGO/DPI Executive Committee , and Joan Kirby, Chair, 57th Annual DPI/NGO Conference, to refer to Kofi Annan, General Secretary of the UN, to voice out people’s wish for love and peace.

The campaign of the Global Endorsement of Declarations for Human Rights of World Citizens and Peace is in full swing on March 29 th to further extend the achievements made in 2004 and motivate the idea of “How One Good Thought Can Improve the World.” A change starts from oneself and to practice love and peace in daily lives. If people can always have good thoughts, the destiny of this world will differ and move toward a brighter future.

Please log on to the Tai Ji Men website to watch the movie “How One Good Thought Can Improve the World.” To learn how world leaders, including President Wade of Senegal, President Fradique de Menezes of Sao Tome and Principe, and President Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic, turn the symbolic key of the world and put their words into actions for world peace.

As we were inducted by FOWPAL to their campaign, and we had the honor to ring the organization’s Peace Bell, as Pope John Paul II, many Presidents and Nobel Prize Winners, and NGO leaders did. We signed onto their previous campaigns, and now I was invited to their 04.04.08 Manhattan launching of the 2008 campaign – this past Friday – at a hotel near the UN.

For Dr. Hong spoke Rick Ulfik from “We The World” that tries to move the world “from the path of capacity to the path of sustainability, peace and transformation.” Dr. Hong’s concept of INTERDEPENDENCE – “we or all of us are in it together – when the least of us is hurt – we are all diminished.” Speaking of FOWPAL, Rick said that – ” working with Oliver, Julie, and others in FOWPAL, we get that this transformation has to start with PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION   – INSPIRE, INFORM, and INVOLVE. That is what Rick’s organization does, and that is what FOWPAL does. People are inspired to get to a better level that leads to taking action.

Since my last visit with FOWPAL, the organization has developed an interesting symbolism that uses both hands to describe a heart, then people link in a chain using those same heart finger-touch, and eventually fluter away as   free spirits, but then the right hand returns with strength to declare ENERGY, ENERGY, ENERGY!

This is a depiction of spiritual energy – but to me this translated also as their basic concept of sustainability – which ends with the call ENERGY – which is to all of us the base for sustainability. Fowpal does not just preach appeasement, it rather includes the call to action embodied in these cries of energy.

From the FOWPAL Press release following the 04.04.08 evening:

The Libyan Permanent Ambassador to the UN is the second man from left, next to him is the Chairman of the Global Systems Analysis and Simulation Association in the US.

Now one last word – the evening was specially interesting when I realized that I was there of a sudden in the company of the man who represented Libya in its leadership month – the Presidency of the UN Security Council – and you know what?     He was there to cut the ribbon for starting the campaign for human rights and sustainability embodied in that cry of ENERGY, ENERGY, ENERGY! Only at the outskirts of the UN, this becomes an actuality!
