4.2 MOST FAVOURABLY EVALUATED PROPOSALS

VCAESP II. On Global Harmony

VCAESP.08. Strengthening cultural identity in face of globalization. The globalization process has spread throughout the world, and has stripped the character from rich cultures by commercializing relations that before were based on community life, on gratitude and on affectionate and symbolic exchanges. The economy-world has also stimulated the appearance of a culture-world. However, social and cultural movements and strong local identities have instigated a cultural rebirth. “Essence’ can be found at the local level, and ‘appearance’ at the global level. (16.10.)

VCAESP.09. Strengthening the cultural diversity of different countries and regions, and stimulating cultural exchange. Each culture has its history, its wealth and its singularity. It is in its diversity that solutions for the great challenges of humanity are found. However, defending diversity as a factor of cultural enrichment, should not hinder cultural exchange, or the blind defence of traditions. Some cultures experience rich narratives and myths, while at the same time disrespect human rights. This is unacceptable. For these cultures, experiencing cultural exchange can bring forth parameters regarding unknown rights in their history. (16.08.)

VCAESP.10. Building a culture of peace. Our societies practically don't know what lasting Peace is. The culture of Peace should be one of the most important banners, and not only so that the Empire can reign over the consensus and silence of the dominated, but as a condition for constructing a happier society in all fields of human activities and life. Art, as builder of communities of emotion, as a celebration of collectivity, could play a fundamental role – as an aggregating essence and Peace builder. In this sense, campaigns for peace, movements for art and peace in schools, art and peace meetings among young people, symbolic actions for peace and movements against disarmament could be carried out. (16.14.)

VCAESP.11. From an international perspective of education, within the framework of an alternative globalisation, we must think of an education which promotes the development of the civil society on a national, regional and planetary scale by taking care of the different cultural ways of appropriation of reality and the defence of the rights related to the different cultural identities. (25.01.)

VCAESP.12. Promoting at a world scale an in depth revision of the guidelines, parameters and criteria that govern science, research and production of knowledge. As long as science continues with the same paradigms of positivism and the knowledge “fragmented into watertight compartments” their members (mostly educators and researchers) will continue to hinder an equitable, fair and united development of the planet. (Article suggested by a participant for proposal 25.)

VCAESP.13. Promoting a universal humanism. Proposing a common trunk of knowledge for all the university students and teachers in the world in order to contribute to the creation of a peaceful globalisation with a programme in two main parts: a) a large unitary recount of all the sciences: elements of physics and astrophysics (the formation of the universe), chemistry, biology (birth of life on Earth and the evolution of species), general anthropology, agronomy, medicine and the passage to culture with the relation of man with the Earth, with life and humanity itself; b) an atlas of the mosaic of human cultures: elements of geography and history of the families of languages and their evolution, elements of religions (polytheisms, monotheisms, pantheisms, atheisms), elements of political sciences (different kinds of governments); elements of economics (the distribution of wealth in the world); selected masterpieces of the world wisdoms and the fine arts (literature, music, painting). (Article suggested by a participant for proposal 26.)
