4.2 MOST FAVOURABLY EVALUATED PROPOSALS

VCAESP I. On some Fundamental Notions

VCAESP.01. Necessity for change is a responsible act: A system that recommends materialism as the only alternative by encouraging social egoism is no longer viable. Changing and bringing the values of “life” (love, solidarity, compassion, respecting differences) back to the foreground are vital notions. (35.03.)

VCAESP.02. Initiate reflection on notions of power: Money, political power, etc. are no longer enough to turn a country or an individual into a unit of power. (35.04.)

VCAESP.03. Culture. We should consider that in every culture there are three distinct levels that are, however, articulated: the fundamental values, the institutions that articulate these values and the concrete practice. (03.02.)

VCAESP.04. Cultural diversity. We should take up the most adequate model, which is called “A world that includes many worlds”, ruling out the other two possibilities: “One monochromatic world” or “One colourful world”, because we feel that the point is not manage to get harmony despite our differences, but because of our differences. (03.03.)

VCAESP.05. Pluralism. We should develop the notion of pluralism as a dynamic balance between an isolating plurality and a uniformizing unity, refusing both the reduction of cultural diversity to universal parameters and the dismantling relativism, by means of developing a radical relativity that takes into account the cultural text as well as its pre-text and context. (03.04.)

VCAESP.06. Integrate the notion of “sustainability” in changes that have been initiated: As actors on today’s stage, our first responsibility is to envisage our action on the basis of consequences to past experiences and to show any possible consequences for the generations to come. Prudence is therefore an essential principle to be respected. (35.02.)

VCAESP.07. Problems and solutions in perpetual movement: In our approach to developing observations or actions, we must integrate the non-static aspect of events and, because of this, be neither ashamed not frightened of changing course. (35.10.)
