Global Peace Science Agenda 2017: New Dialogue for the G20 and UN
UNITED NATIONS, 3 Jul 2017
The Main Objective of the New Agenda Is to Initiate a New Discourse on Global Peace in Scientific and Humanistic Harmonious Vision in Our Century
Global Harmony Association (GHA) prepared the following appeal/message to the G20 Summit on July 7, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany, to the UN Session on September and to other International Organizations to lobby, ultimately, the continuous Global Peace Summit in a scientific and humanistic perspective and to unite in this purpose/vision the peacemaking forces and organizations for the sake of the better Sustainable Future. Global Peace Science Agenda for the G20 is a new global peace dialogue for creating nuclear free world of sustainable future in the 21st century.
The GHA Appeal/Message:
The world lives today in the shivers of extreme exacerbation of militarism, belligerence and intolerance that threaten the Planet’s very survival. At the time when the governments of leading democracies are in disarray, the only way that remains open in this situation for the ordinary citizens of all countries is to appeal to the sanity and moral courage of political leaders who hold the keys of peace and war. We can only call their with the initiative of a NEW DIALOGUE on GLOBAL PEACE IN THE SCIENTIFIC PARADIGM (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=757) instead of the endless arms race and extreme escalation of military rhetoric, plans, threats, sanctions, consciousness and coalitions. Only the New Dialogue of Global Peace is able to “shift the arms race into a peace race,” as the great thinker and peacemaker Martin Luther King Jr. bequeathed to us. We do not see ANY OTHER WAY to ensure this overripe, most necessary shift in the most vital challenge to humanity in the 21st century!
G20 Peace Agenda Appeal:
To every leader of G20:
We would like to ask every of you to initiate at the G20 summit, or at the UN Session, the “Global Peace Science Agenda”, which was developed, made public and proposed in eight languages to the leaders of 193 UN member states by the peacemaking organizations and Nobel Prize Laureates. It can be found at: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=757.
Your initiative with global peace science would make your country a leader in the 21st Century of the scientific, peacemaking revolution, or better still pro-evolution, which could “shift the arms race into a peace race” (M. King) through the peace science and will give your country a priority in the unique digital technologies that ensure sustainable economic growth.
Do you want this? Would you like to do this? Would you, as one of the world leaders, willing to take seriously your social and moral responsibility for global peace, and thus for the destiny of humankind and our planet?
Your initiative will be the start of a new international discourse/dialogue on a scientific as well as humanistic vision of global peace. It will help to overcome the obvious deficit in global peace research in contrast to the global military research, which appears to be suicidal for humankind and our planet, in the face of the possibility of a second cold war bordering with a thermonuclear war.
Your initiative would indeed be a historic event to rescue humanity and the planet from the deadly militaristic threat. Your initiative would remain in the memory of a grateful humanity for a long time.
It would be a great, unprecedented initiative of peace through science and humanism. It would certainly be necessary for the people of your country and all humanity. We think that this proposal is acceptable to you.
Since you are a peacemaker, therefore you shall recognize that this peace initiative is necessary, particularly in the present global crisis. Or do you think it is untimely and ready to give away the palm of its primacy to another country?

To this date, 14 members of the GHA and its friends sent during the week to the G20 leaders more than 70 appeals/messages to initiate this agenda at their summit. The number of these messages is constantly growing. Will they be enough to provide access to at least one of the leaders will show time? But in any case, our initiative ignites at least some light at the end of the impenetrable militaristic tunnel of the 21st century, deadly now for all.
The necessity to develop Global Peace Science (GPS) based on the idea of world harmony, which includes all human values and is intuitively shared by all civilizations in the history. We realize that the initial version of GPS is far from perfection and requires its further improvement at the state level of each country and within the framework of the UN, designed to provide global peace with the most effective means, the first of which is PEACE SCIENCE. Only it can construct the defenses of peace by the best way.
The GHA invites every leader of the UN member states to show your social responsibility for peace by your unique initiation of the Global Peace Agenda at the UN, G20, G7 and other International Summits that will raise your peacemaking prestige highly. Please voice your support for this initiative to terminate the endless arms race and escalation of war threats, which may lead to a nuclear annihilation of the world by accident if not design. Only a new dialogue of global peace in a holistic scientific and humanistic approach of the proposed Agenda is capable to bring humanity out of this deadly impasse.
