6. GLOBAL CROSS-SYNTHESIS: 30
PROPOSALS FOR AN ALTERNATIVE WORLD MODEL
3O articles have been selected. The participants
consider them “key propos-als for the preparation of alternatives
to the current globalisation model”.
I. Preparation of a New Theoretical
01. The people have identified seven principles,
directions essential for deepening and enhancing the foundations
of a new economic paradigm. These foundations are intimately related
to the "reconceptualisation" of basic economic concepts.
The eight principles are follows:
- The multifunctionalism of the "productive" activities
and work done by women;
- The elimination of barriers (decompartmentalisation) and
the sharing of work and responsibilities;
- Recognition of the need to conciliate roles and activities
and fair sharing of time and tasks;
- Recognition of traditional know-how and experience acquired
outside the sphere of the "dominant" economy;
- The organisation of production and life on the basis of the
time and needs of persons and communities;
- A hierarchy of priorities that takes into account people's
lives and their identities as human beings;
Transparency in activities at all levels. (02.06.)
02. The university faced with liberal economics.
The university must main-tain a fundamental relationship with culture,
which means that it must not be an instrument of the market economy.
On the contrary, it must safeguard basic knowledge - Universitas.
The university must become that privileged place that combines knowledge,
teaching, reflection and education; a place where cultures and languages
blend, where the intelligence of the public should be given possibilities
of seeing, listening, appreciating, criticising and evaluating sciences,
the quality of a text, a stage direction, interpretation and work
of art. These tools are necessary so that each person can build
their own vision of the world. (34.05.)
