Quest of a Pedagogy
Inspiring a Global Vision for Change
An innovative framework is an evolving understanding of ideas, principals and objectives that are perceived and change over time based on experience and circumstance; an all-inclusive effort to advance the human condition in a global context, detailing a scheme and requirements needed to create an extensive actionable framework that through concerted effort assist in reconciling long-standing misguided and short-sighted assumptions about the true nature and purpose of the human race.
Entity of One
Develop the conscious reality of the oneness of the human species and engage all that it portends.
The essence and core reality of human diversity. It works to perfect that diversity through its oneness.
Empathy and Justice
A non-adversarial approach to achieve individual, social, economic, and institutional well-being.
Learning AND Doing
Within the midst of a rapid world-wide change we are attempting to learn how to manifest viable relationships among individuals, communities and institutions. Supported by independent research and with a profound search for truth, this undertaking will help ensure that knowledge, inclusive analysis, and forthright action will remain key components of our ongoing strategy to construct an innovative framework that inspires a vision for global change.
SENSITIVITY & WISDOM REQUIRED WHEN PRESENTING NEW IDEAS
We must learn to express points-of-view in ways that reflects a maturing human race based on unifying relationships among individuals, communities, and institutions; as protagonists of one organic whole, not discordant competing elements reflective of the adolescent stage of social development.
The goal is to search for truth, right action, and justice in all undertakings.
Culture Constructs Confused with human nature
By confusing cultural constructs with human nature it becomes difficult, almost impossible, to recognise or imagine other cultural possibilities. Alternative ways of thinking, talking and acting become marginalised by what's taken as common sense or realism that the culture itself constructs.
Change is contingent upon our ability to step outside that labeled as 'Culture of Contest'.
The Need for New Patterns of Collective Community Life
The current and reoccurring global crisis has raised awareness of the importance of solidarity and collective action for 'community build'; to explore what is the place of community in this modern world by reconceptualising the concept of community in order to build a unified vision of community life.
Building stable and progressive communities will require new patterns of thought/collective effort.
Spirit of Service
Diversity inclusiveness is key for taping into the accumulating knowledge of the human race, and to consult on questions that arise will engender a process that increases the learning curve and promote capacity for community development.
Principal of Oneness
An objective analysis takes into account the 'pros and cons' of situations experienced, decisions to be made, and their projected outcomes. This is done to best decide how to surmount seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to accomplish stated objectives. A positive approach to reconcile problems is undertaken with a 'can do' attitude. Least acceptable is an excessive attitude about why something cannot be done. The world is undergoing rapid change, and new ideas for social innovations are required to establish the direction humanity must take to secure its future and also manage an emerging global ethos. Proactive planning will help lessen, to a degree, the intensity of onslaughts humanity must endure in its quest for maturity.
Our Common Future
World events have instilled awareness for the need to develop a new understanding of community, to move beyond what we currently know or have experienced and create a vision of community that encapulsates humanity’s common future. Submit your project to unify community.

Species identity in the future community of global consciousness will not be a concept that gains ascendancy over other identities, and will threaten no one. It will rather be a crowning awareness of how all human identities crafted over time come together in a common. . .
