One day in the not-too-distant future, by all governments/nations, a Global Peace Treaty will be signed!
To all signatories, a dual mission will be assigned:
1. All children as peace co-builders will be educated.
2. All global citizens will be ensured of enjoying their multi-right to:
Sharing scientific/technological innovations.
In short, by honoring the Global Peace Treaty, all governments/nations will be co-writing a new history for Humanity!
