SUBJECT: Discussion of Global Peace Science (GPS) on the UN General Assembly and the UNESCO General Conference in order to create the most powerful intellectual (scientific) instrument for global peace with the new peacebuilding technologies, which will be acceptable to all nations, cultures and nuclear powers providing constant pacifization* overcoming militarism.
ENCLOSURE: The “Global Peace Science” book by 174 co-authors from 34 countries, 2016, 616 pages or in PDF: http://peacefromharmony.org/docs/global-peace-science-2016.pdf
“Global Peace Science is the dawn of a shining, harmonious vision of peace and prosperity for all the nations!” — Abdul Kalam, 2015, President of India, 2002-2007.
This is the first great recommendation of GPS for the UN and UNESCO.
Dear Mr. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and
Director General of UNESCO Madame Irina Bokova,
The UN Charter and the UNESCO Constitution have formulated the key peace idea: “That since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed.” If the war minds received a powerful rooting in military science, founded more than two centuries ago, which now concentrates military intellect with invention of the most devastating weapons of mass destruction, the defences of peace minds were left fragmented and powerless before the war without their science up to now. Therefore humanity has not been able to put an end to the wars so far. The war minds seem invincible for the defences of peace minds as long as they remain outside and without science. If this dependence is true and is recognized by the UN and UNESCO, the main aspiration for them ‘must be constructed’ peace science. Unfortunately, the world community does not see it. To overcome this lack, we, the undersigned, offer you to discuss peace science.
The first version of this science – Global Peace Science (GPS) – was completed in the Global Harmony Association (GHA) for 11 years by the 174 co-authors from 34 countries and was published in English in 2016.** This project joined dozens of different authors and integrated almost all diversity of constructive peacemaking ideas, relieving itself from their fragmented impotence before war and military science. This science, as the supreme, scientific understanding of peace, has all reasons to become the most powerful intellectual and technological alternative to military science and all wars, including prepared and matured nuclear war in the new “Barbarossa” spirit, which will be a catastrophe for humanity and the planet. Only GPS and its new peacebuilding technologies, which provide continuous pacifization and open a new era of humanity – the Peacefulness Age – is capable to confront it.
Therefore, the GPS intellectual potential, its technologies and its revolution of the peacemaking thinking, are deserving of the closest attention and the most careful discussion in the UN and UNESCO in order to further development of this science and its institutionalization in politics, peace culture and education to recommend it to all Members – States of the UN and UNESCO. This step practically will confirm your real aspiration to put an end to wars, finding them an alternative in scientific peace consciousness and in its new peacebuilding technologies. GPS will make a common platform for global sustainable disarmament during 50 years at 2% per year that without GPS is unthinkable and impossible.
The GPS development, including an International Scientific Contest for its best version, to which is dedicated the GPS special section, is the most favorable in the UNESCO Social and Human Sciences Sector (www.unesco.org/new/en/social-and-human-sciences/about-us/who-we-are/whos-who) under the UN aegis. The GPS development corresponds to the UN and UNESCO fundamental statutory demand: “Building peace in the minds of men and women,” which is impracticable without the peace science. Only with its help the UN and UNESCO may drastically lift their peacebuilding mission to provide humanity with the real dream and scientific project of purely peaceful sustainable development without wars in the 21st century. The Petition is the fruit and quintessence of our ‘collective consciousness’ (Durkheim) of the GPS key importance for humanity global peace inspiring and you and us.
* Pacifization (or peacescienization) in GPS is universal process similar to globalization and informatization, embodying in the constant growth of reconciliation in global society as result of spreading consciousness and peacebuilding technologies of GPS. Not to be confused with the local attempts of violent reconciliation – with “pacification.”
** The GPS book in the Russian language has been completed by the 89 coauthors from 30 countries and was published in 2015 (432 pages) and in English – in 2016 (616 pp.). The GPS Resume (in 1 page) was translated into nine languages and published together with this book on the GHA website “Peace from Harmony»: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=656. The GPS book was published in India, Russia and the US becoming the property of all continents and freely available to almost every citizen of the Earth.
