Approval of a common platform and worldwide development of cross-cultural workshops—theme-based, regional, and socioprofessional—which would produce 61 Proposal Papers for the implementation of the breakthroughs and evolutions needed in our societies that will build a fairer and more sustainable 21st century.
Gathering 400 participants, this was the finishing point of the workshops organized in the framework of the Alliance for a Responsible, Plural and United World.
An outcome of the World Citizens Assembly, this was an international cross-cultural project around the concept of responsibility, with a charter as a reference point from which to move forward on thinking and action, and men and women to set these in motion.
After the Lille Assembly, an international team was set up to submit the Charter of Human Responsibilities to civil society worldwide and test its relevance on the field, in different cultural and socioprofessional contexts.
The Charter underscores the essence of what was found to be common to the proposals drawn up by the different Alliance 21 work groups: a call to become aware of the powerful need to assume new responsibilities, both individual and collective.
Its guiding principles are featured as a common core to be transposed and given concrete expression in the different fields of human activity, in different languages and also adapted to every culture.
The Charter team’s work culminated in June 2010 with the organization in Brasilia of an international children and youth conference “Let’s Take Care of the Planet”, attended by 400 girls and boys from 53 countries in all 5 continents, the final destination of a process that involved millions of people all over the world, where our children, with their ideas, their proposals, and their dreams, were the main protagonists.
