Dear Colleague, I do not recall if I sent you this notice on AWC which was
posted on a website in India that you might be able to use in Nepal. Best
THE ASSOCIATION OF WORLD CITIZENS, AWC
The Association of World Citizens <http://www.worldcitizensunited.org/> (AWC)
is a world-wide movement of individuals who participate fully in the
emerging cosmopolitan, humanist world society. The Association of World
Citizens has consultative status with ECOSOC
<https://www.un.org/ecosoc/en/home>, the United Nations
<http://www.un.org/en/index.html> organ facilitating international
cooperation on and problem-solving in world economic and social issues.
Non-governmental Organizations (NGO) such as the Association of World
Citizens, through their consultative status with the U.N., are rising in
influence and are respected voices within the United Nations. Citizens of
the World have achieved much by working through the U.N. and its
Specialized Agencies. World Citizens contribute to the development of
global policy and international agreements through interaction with
government representatives, U.N. Secretariat members, the representatives
of other NGOs and academic specialists. In this way World Citizens take
firm action to formulate effective responses to the challenges facing the
We believe that the term “world citizen” best encompasses the constellation
of principles, values, attitudes and behaviors needed in the emerging world
society. That is why we are the Association of World Citizens. World
Citizenship begins with an acceptance of the oneness of the human family
and an affirmation of the life-promoting values of joy and personal growth.
The Association of World Citizens is structured around four avenues of
1. the resolution of armed conflicts;
2. the promotion and protection of human rights;
3. Ecologically-sound development in the framework of the 2015-2030
Sustainable Development Goals;
4. the creation of a cosmopolitan, humanist world society.
1. *The Resolution of Armed Conflicts:* In the AWC efforts to resolve
armed conflicts through negotiations in good faith, we stress that we must
pay attention to new tensions and new difficulties in world politics. We
are dedicated to the emergence of a consciousness of humanity as one
community. We work to develop non-violent methods to resolve armed
conflicts and to develop a culture of peace based on reverence for life.
Many of the AWC positions are on the websitehttp://awcungeneva.wordpress.com.
Our emphasis has been on the resolution of armed conflicts in the Wider
Middle East and Africa.
2. *The Promotion and Protection of Human Rights:* In the field of the
promotion and protection of human rights, AWC action and appeals to
Governments have concerned the human rights of:
a. women and children;
b. migrants and refugees;
c. liberty of conscience and belief;
d. the abolition of the death penalty:
e. the dignity and rights of sexual minorities;
f. liberty of association and the press.
3. *Ecologically-sound development:* A new history is being written, a
history which requires the increased cooperation between humans and
Nature. World Citizens are active on such issues as global warming,
deforestation and the quality of air and water. A special emphasis has been
placed on a comprehensive world food policy and cooperation in
trans-frontier river systems.
4. *The creation of a cosmopolitan, humanist world society:* Citizens of
the World have been in the lead to create a New Humanism for the 21st
century in keeping with UNESCO’s call for the development of a universal
global consciousness based on dialogue in a climate of trust and mutual
understanding. World Citizens strive to build bridges of understanding
over the divides of cultures, social classes and narrow nationalism. Thus
World Citizens create the foundations of a cosmopolitan, humanist world
As World Citizens, we know that the problems confronting humanity are
daunting in their depth and complexity. Yet we know that the human spirit
is endowed with the ability to transform even the most difficult
circumstances through cooperation for positive change. Today, we move into
the New Age of cooperation and spiritual growth.
AWC initiatives are on its three websites:
