As a business consultant, traveler, social entrepreneur and artist i have seen how human rights are taken in consideration while daily life decision making, how are seldom known, and how seldom are applied.
For my surprise it is not only in third world countries, but in immigration policies and protocols, labor rights issues, women and children, family issues, but as well in daily life business, daily life relationships and even love relationships.
In 2011 i decided to reduce the time of my commitment to corporations and ground a non for profit organization dedicated to peace, i studied in more detail the issue of peace, war and human rights (Finally in 2016 i grounded a foundation in The Netherlands).
I discovered that war strategy has been used by all cultures in the world for last centuries, and it is integrated to the subconscious mind of every modern society, from politics, to business, religion, education, city design, and daily life decision making.
No wonder that war, conflict and other macro social events take place still in our modern world.
A start for the change would be to become aware of how in daily life, most of strategies used, follow war strategy principles. Simples examples and exercises can verify this observation in every individual or organization daily life.
If we are looking for peace, we must change from the root, how humanity design its daily business, as it is there when the long term business and culture/civilization development process take place, decisions are made and future is created.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948, as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
The UDHR found resonance after second world war as the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
HUMAN RIGHTS IN DAILY LIFE OF MODERN GLOBAL CULTURE
2016, after living abroad and abroad traveling, since 1997, i have personally experienced how necessary and important is to rise awareness on the need of a global culture and civilization to grow hand to hand with the application of human rights in daily life.
Legal instruments as well as organizations dedicated to awareness rising, change of policies, protection and education of global citizens are necessary.
There are still so many cases of structural abuse, labor abuse, enforced encarcelation, women and children abuse, immigrants abuse, family abuse, that take place in countries and locations that are educated enough, and intentionally agree on the importance of peace, care for family, culture, nature and heritage.
Why still, in a modern world which has been educated for about 70 years, on the importance of peace, and human rights, ethics, justice, heritage, one still in well developed countries and development countries, experience so many cases of abuse?
While researching on peace, and writing a series of publications dedicated to peace work, i did find out that the UDHR is intentionally accepted and supported, but in practical terms, needs to be applied in daily life as in situations of conflict that threatens peace and in locations that are lacking of information and awareness on human rights, ethics and justice from a modern global culture and civilization point of view.
The ability to apply human rights, ethics, non violence in daily life: interpersonal relationships, business and professional decision making, strategies and culture; family and love relationships; within a process of community building and team building, as well as in the management of an organization, community or business, is necessary.
Human rights are not for intellectual and conceptual discussion only, while the design of organizations and instruments, policies that follow human rights is paramount for a future in peace, the education of human perception, sensibility, sensitivity, emotional ability to communicate, collaborate and co-create by observing the UDHR is necessary.
There for, this campaign is dedicated to support peace at our backyard, at home ground, in daily life.
THE FUTURE OF PEACE WITHIN A GLOBAL CIVILIZATION OF WAR
Modern world is the result of 1000s of years, cultures and civilizations dedicated to care for own interests that did choose to dedicate all their efforts and resources to policies, culture and organization designed for war, or safety, protection of their own interests and culture. The modern global culture has learned on war strategy for business, professional development, personal development, religion, politics and education. War type of perception is natural in the modern human, the instinctive response to power, weakness, threat and opportunity. How about a shift into peace strategy?
Modern global culture has done important steps in the field of non violence. While still, even communication, for example at executive domain, may be emotionally sensitive and non violent, strategy design and decision making produce violent outcomes for individuals, their families, local communities, culture, nature, governments and history, even for the future for the human species.
NON VIOLENCE & ETHICS
Non violence and ethics need to be integrated to human rights, as for essential elements of individual, professional, family, political daily life.
A new global culture and civilization, needs of a new pattern of thinking, perceiving, doing, and creating. Progress is necessary, science and technology, as well as an stable global economy. While if human rights or not observed, and ethics are not applied, along the unstoppable progress, violence would become a trait still of a modern culture that claims to be dedicated to peace and equality.
BUILDING UP A NEW FUTURE FOR HUMANITY
In order to bring a refreshing daily life experience on human rights, ethics and no violence to business, politics, family, community and personal development realms, the following strategies have been designed:
1. Awareness Rising Campaigns:
While Human rights, ethics and non violence importance is in developed countries not a new topic, and there is a collective agreement and consent for its practice, it is still necessary to rise awareness on the challenges faced while the intentional application of human rights, non violence and ethics in daily life. How do we care for the human rights of own children, wife or husband, of those of our employees, neighbors or community members? Along 24×7 decision making, preferences, choices, priorities? The awareness rising campaigns will show cases in which the current modern global culture do not observe human rights, non violence or application of ethics; and suggest important changes in individuals and organization perception regarding the need of a grounded tangible application of them, through the realization that agreement on policies, concepts and perception of their importance is not enough for daily life needs. For example emotional self-management, perception, communication and collaboration trainings will be suggested.
2. Leadership training program.
It will help leaders in any field, to apply, (Human rights, ethics and non violence) integrate into their daily practice, development process, strategies, decision making, policies, culture, in general from governance to daily life communication and interaction.
3. Performing arts for peace:
A crew of international and multicultural artists, trained on ethics, non violence and human rights will perform, as in improv theater and role played theater several performances in which will be demonstrated: challenges in the daily life application of human rights ethics and non violence; but as well how could be a love relationship, a family, a team, a company, a community or society, politics and daily life in general, a global culture and civilization that is conscious and apply tangibly in every daily life human rights, ethics and non violence. The ensemble, crew of performing artists will be trained, and performances will be suggested at locations and online, for the purpose of awareness rising, and education through story telling.
