4.2 MOST FAVOURABLY EVALUATED PROPOSALS

VCAESP IV. On Personal Conduct in Keeping with World Social Harmony

VCAESP.32. Our existence depends on EVERYTHING that surrounds us: Outside the family and school, from the very beginning children must be helped to become aware of the existence of relationships between them, society and the environment in which they live. These relations must be explained in terms of:

  • Responsibility and self-respect, respect for nature and others;
  • Continuous evaluation of their own actions and thoughts;
  • Richness of exchange and dialogue. (35.09.)

VCAESP.33. It is useful to remember that the basic conditions of cultural liberty are and continue to be: a knowledge of reading, writing, and arithmetic. One might insist on the fact that respect for orthography must be experienced not as a submission to the rule but rather as a concrete individual expression of the will to progress and of the intimate responsibility of each individual to want (or not) “to be less bestial”.

VCAESP.34. Consumers constitute an essential category. This sector obviously participates in the economy, but environmental problems are generated by consumption, leading to effects harmful to health and well-being. Therefore action is needed to:

  • permit everyone to identify their essential needs: to ask the question “Do I really need this?” before asking, “What should I choose?”;
  • resist advertising, gadgets, that which does not last, etc.;
  • avoid waste by over-consumption;
  • choose healthy food and follow a balanced diet,
  • attempt to reduce packaging, since it totals over half of waste in industrial societies. (27.13.)

VCAESP.35. The art has the task of making the world a better place to live in. A place that is more than just a struggle for daily survival, a place for creative imagination, for dreaming, for the utopia. It is important to highlight the importance of Art as an instrument enabling people to bear a new vision of the human being, and for its contribution in helping to elevate self-esteem, to humanize and emancipate the spirit; in other words, Art’s contribution in making people and society better. (16.03.)

VCAESP.36. The university must develop the notion of individual responsibility. This entails reformulating and appropriating a concept of ethical and deontological responsibility that does not only assess itself vis-à-vis the obvious and direct harm of technological applications, but also vis-à-vis the responsibility of academics in their relationship with the world. (34.02.)
