Information Packet for Religion and World Order Program Project Global 2000.
This packet describes an initiative of the Religion Council of Project Global 2000, forming a global partnership of secular and religious non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and United Nations (UN) agencies that link their expertise and networks for more just, sustainable, and peaceful world systems. The program brings together scholars, educators, and community groups from the world's major religious and spiritual traditions to participate in public discourse and action on issues of global ethics and in the shaping of policies and systems commensurate to the global-scale challenges of today's interdependent world. The objectives include: (1) create a process for religious and spiritual communities to reflect upon the contributions their traditions, scriptures, and networks can make to a shared global ethic and to the creation of systems of global governance; (2) produce reflection-action documents that will spell out the above contributions and formulate proposals for world order policy and systems change; and (3) link human and institutional resources with those of other religions, secular NGOs, and UN agencies in collaborative research, education, publications, leadership, and networking for a more just, peaceful, participatory, and environmentally sustainable world order. Sections of the document are as follows: (1) "Executive Summary"; (2) "History," which offers a chronology of the work of Global Education Associates (GEA); (3) "Rationale and Context" (Patricia and Gerald Mische); (4) "The Religion and World Order Program--Overview"; (5) "Guideline Questions--Religion and World Order Documents"; (6) "Report Format--Religion and World Order Documents Project Global 2000." Contains 5 appendixes. (EH)
