CALLS YOU TO ESTABLISH
INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF GLOBAL PEACE (IAGP)
as joint bridge of world peace through science and cultural partnership
for the beginning of 20-25 experts and scholars, for example in Russia, Simferopol that will make Crimea by the BRICS scientific center and spiritual source of global peace.
The IAGP Purposes are development of Global Peace Science (GPS) as innovative transformation of peace thinking, training of the professional peacemakers with Bachelor, Master and Doctor Degrees of Peacemaking Science (as, for example, at the Institute of World Harmony, which was created in India, in IASE University on the GHA initiative - see 8.21.) and diffusion of GPS.
The Method of GPS development is democratic consolidation in IAGP the scientific groups from different countries with different scientific approaches to peace. The GPS option created in the GHA is initial and preliminary. The final version of GPS should be created in the IAGP, which catalogs the different research groups and scientific approaches to peace, organize their international Contest (8.20.), international Congresses on their discussion and ensures the synthesis of their constructive advantages in the final version of GPS. It is a huge and long-term work that can be done only in IAGP. The IAGP Project and its broad scientific and cultural substantiation are presented in our GPS book: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585.
IAGP Vision: Creating a new multipolar and harmonious/balanced world order excluding the war to ensure peace and prosperity to all nations.
IAGP Implementation: Joint projecting and investment (both: state and business) in construction of the IAGP building in Crimea and the joint formation of the IAGP staff.
Motivation: Global peace can be achieved on our planet only on the base of peace science in the 21st century. This science should be created finality in IAGP. (For more details about motivation see 8.4.).
This science integrates the spiritual potential of humanity peacefulness of all its nations, cultures and civilizations on the innovative theoretical foundation as shown in our book.
We all together with you see that peace in our time is as fragile as it was 100 years ago - in 1914, as 75 years ago - in 1939, before the two world wars of the most bloody 20th century. Humanity is once again on the verge of world war but now nuclear, unprecedented in its victims, which will be calculated into billions if it will survive generally. War constantly wins peace because it has one absolute advantage - military science, science of killing by the most sophisticated weapons of mass destruction. This science was established more than two centuries ago and since then all governments cherish it with the fattest military budgets. Now the governments and nations do not know how to escape from it, released to freedom, military jinn. War begins with the head, with science. Put an end to them can also only by reason and science that Einstein said else.
But in contrast to war, peace is still deprived of own science that does not allow to strengthen it with stable social consciousness, free from tearing subjectivity of many different approaches to peace. Scientific understanding of peace will free it from its historical weakness, raise it at the current level, strengthen spiritually and provide it with decent support and funding of all states.
Only with the help of this science humanity can be freed from the threat of new wars and ensure stable peace. All the tools of peace: Peace-building departments in governments, peace education, culture of peace, interfaith harmony, disarmament, Global Peace Constitution, international law, peaceful resolution of conflicts and the like can be effective only in a single complex with GPS.
The first practical step towards global peace based on science is IAGP creating. It is the historical mission and task of the BRICS, which you are able to decide to bring humanity to peace and rid it from the new and catastrophic wars. This saving for peace cultural and humanitarian initiative can arrive only from you as leaders of a peaceful global community. Another way to global peace does not exist. If there would another way, then peace would have reigned on the planet long ago. Therefore, it is necessary to fill the absence of this key condition for peace - the science – by collective democratic efforts in the IAGP.
The IAGP project is inextricably linked with two earlier projects of GHA:
1. World Harmony/Peace Academy (WHPA, 2008): http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=277 and
2. World Harmony Center (WHC, 2013) by Ukrainian architect Oleg Bodnar: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=633 (11.4).
All three projects can find integral incarnation and the most convenient location in the Crimea, Simferopol as a university city, which will become the BRICS world academic center and symbol of global peace from harmony on the scientific foundation.

International Day of Peace, September 21, 2012
Peace Will Not Come Without Disarmament!
In English: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=531
In Russian: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=558
On this great day, each one of us must make on our own, a seemingly small, but significant contribution to world peace.
We all know that the situation with regards to peace in the world is extremely unfavorable. The Second World War marked the beginning of world arms race. Ever since, the military spending has been increasing steadily every year and now has reached its astronomical limits. The weapons, especially nuclear weapons are not only immoral, but a threat to global security. We recently learned about a possible military attack on Iran, which has the potential to escalate to a third world war, a perilous prospect for humanity and our common home - the Earth. Here, we are a family of different ethnoses united together in divine harmony as one nation under God. The family members do not use weapons against each other even when they disagree.
Weapons are needed for enemies who want to suppress others by force or kill for domination. In the global village of nations that we cherish to create, we cannot afford to live as enemies. So, we do not want to accumulate weapons to intimidate each other by the militarist principle – If you want peace, prepare for war; peace without the gun is not possible. That would be arms race all over again. However, all the past history, replete with wars, has demonstrated that weapons really are ineffective in achieving peace. on the contrary, in any war, the weapons have caused a tremendous loss of life and only bring death, pain, grief etc. Peace on the weapons is not possible! The weapon is a power not for peace and for war. It is merely the energy of physical violence, a way of destruction, not creation.
Peace is possible only by disarmament, that is, in the absence of weapons. No weapons – no war. General and complete disarmament is the only practical and material condition for global peace. If the peacemakers and all the people are not united for disarmament, peace will never happen. All other peacemaking actions without disarmament are meaningless.
We urge all peacemakers to join us in our common campaign - disarmament as the most effective means of peacemaking. Disarmament is the first and foremost condition for peace. For rational people and nations, who want to live in peace from harmony not from war, the place for weapons is only in the museums.
To achieve this goal, we invite all of you, as well as members of your organizations and your friends to sign the GHA Petition to the UN demanding total disarmament in 50 years by reducing military spending in each country at the rate of 2-percent per year. It is a social base for disarmament. The spiritual support of the disarmament process is the formation of global consciousness for a global harmonious education through the ABC of harmony and similar world textbooks. The organizational foundation for the disarmament process is the UN Treaty on Total Disarmament on the Basis of Global Harmony. The requirement of total disarmament as the general principle is formulated in the appropriate GHA Petition to the UN.
Petition is signed here:
If the first address is not accessible
We invite all people to be the first peacemakers by signing this petition.
This will be your practical contribution for the world peace!
Millions of people who signed the Petition will be a major social base for disarmament of global civil society.
The Petition with millions of signatures will compel the UN and governments, who are concerned only about the weapons, to address this very important global problem. If we do not do our part, the arms race will continue to be the biggest threat to the world peace contrary to all our peacemaking words. We must join together for disarmament. This is the most important solution for world peace. Our moral and ethics unite us in this great cause for peace – General and complete disarmament.
