Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Signing of the Manifesto on the Spirit of Planetary Consciousness
The Club of Budapest is pleased to announce Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Signing of The Manifesto on the Spirit of Planetary Consciousness and The Club of Budapest Impact Program: Toward 2020.
At the Hungarian Academy of Science’s Conference Center in the Castle District of Budapest on December 3-4, 2016.
Twenty years ago, at the ceremonial Hall of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a historic event took place with the participation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama: World renowned thought leaders from many parts of the world came together to sign The Manifesto on the Spirit of Planetary Consciousness.
The spirit of planetary consciousness is as relevant today as it ever was, and its introduction into the practical affairs of humanity was and still is more urgent than ever. For that reason today, twenty years after the signing of the Manifesto, they called on their eminent Members and collaborators to reflect on how they can bring the spirit of planetary consciousness to the attention of leading business people, leading politicians, leading writers and artists, as well as well-intentioned people the world over in a way that they realize the importance and the urgency of placing it in the forefront of their own thinking and activities.
Their Consultation was to provide signposts for achieving this objective, and live up to the resolve of the Club of Budapest, proclaimed in their last general meeting in December of 2014, to transform themselves from a think-tank to a do-tank.
