FER at People’s Summit COP20 will discuss what responsibility the world needs

by Ricardo Jiménez, Nadia Gianoli

The FER will organise a meeting during the People’s Summit COP 20 about "What responsibility the world needs?"

Organized by the Forum for Ethics and Responsibility - FER, and in the context of the Climate Change Poeple’s Summit around the COP 20 in Lima, this December, an encounter will take place on "WHAT RESPONSIBILITY THE WORLD NEEDS?”.

It is a debate among 40 representatives of civil society and State officials of various countries. It will be about the definition of a principle of responsibility that would sustain progress in tackling climate change towards a new global environmental governance.

The Forum of Ethics and Responsibilities - FER is part of the international organizations group linked to the December 2014 People’s Summit in Lima. It has networks and coordination in all continents of the world and maintains an ongoing process towards new international instruments to institute human responsibilities as new pillar of world governance.

Pierre Calame, French engineer and researcher, member of FER, noted the importance of defining more precisely the concept of responsibility, to be enforceable in international practice. Edith Sizoo, Dutch social linguist, general coordinator of FER, has rescued the double character, at once universal and multicultural, of the responsibilities among all peoples of the world.

More information on how to participate and where will be shared in due time.

  • The Territorial Integrity of Mother Earth

    The TIME is NOW : Territorial Integrity of Mother Earth

    The jurisprudence which articulates the nationhood of Indigenous Peoples is also is a projection of jurisdiction at the planetary level, with mutual responsibilities towards the Territorial Integrity of Mother Earth, and the well being of the Future Generations. The distinction being that our Rights of Nationhood emerge from the COGNITION, and then thus RECOGNITION, of our responsibilities as ONE of the Nations (two legged species of kindom) – among ALL of the RELATIONS to whom and with we share as human society collectively, the responsibility to act in complementarity within the equally shared environment of the Natural World. We are Nations of Mother Earth, and will not consent to be diminished or to be dominated under the regime of the government states of the UN system as mere ethnic groups, or minorities.
