Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Since my concept is life-related, I believe that every sustainable development goal can be pursued either directly or indirectly. Germany dovetail Nigeria will aim to achieve a sustainable development goal by aiming at obtaining these five impacts: 1).

Also, with cooperation applications, and other innovations that support the dual countries, paperwork will be reduced; therefore, we will be able to reduce paper consumption. Thus, this medical system will be able to protect the environment in and out of the healthcare facility. 3). Economical Outcome: We will aim at reducing that is low cost like Tea Campaigned. 4).

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The model of this concept is the blending of entrepreneurship towards social, economic and environmental which are the triple bottom line globally. Being a fusion of artificial intelligence and unconventional principles, first, the German staff would require training to be informed on the element of usability of the app. The training session would be conducted regularly to Nigerians Staff as well though video conference. It would be done by professional and expertise from entrepreneurship campus specialists. They will also be trained on how to download and use some of the mobile application on their electronic devices.

Your profile

My name is Ephraim Essien, I am a serial Nigerian entrepreneur, and I am from South South Nigeria. Currently, I am a young activist, majoring in entrepreneurship, in Africa. Also, I am expecting my major in entrepreneurship in Harvard University and Free University in Berlin soon. As a person who was born frugal, I have been struggling with constant investment throughout my life. This might be a blessing in disguise, I discovered how meaningful life is and what my encouragements are. I felt that frugality isn't just about living, but it's about getting back the opportunity to pursue something we have not done, to make up for our mistakes, and to pass on meaningful things to others.. Our life is an indicator of our world's existence. Therefore, life is so priceless that we need to exterminate all the obstacles that bind us from receiving quality collaboration and economics services. For this reason, my intention is to strengthen the entrepreneurship campus globally, using the 21st century method. By joining the Best Ideas 2020, I believe that I will be able to create awareness and contribute something meaningful to others. With my idea and which gave me a chance to think deeply about what I want to see in the future, and I want to see in myself, as well as future peace between the young Germans and Nigerians.

Happiness is not something that is achieved, it is a skill that is developed and practiced daily. Mastery comes from serving others, because during our darkest moments we must focus on seeing the light.

Your idea is very smart and practical.

Hi!! I would like to give you some advise

1) In business, as in sports! Here, too, your internal attitude to this is important! Your mental attitude. If you are mentally prepared for the upcoming difficulties, ups and downs, then your business will last a long time. If you do not have money, but you decide to start your own business, then be prepared for a long journey. With money everything is easier, but without it ... You understand yourself.
2) What is your business goal? You must clearly understand why you want to do business. 'Because a friend is engaged, and the worse I am,' or do you really see a promising and unique business model, ways to implement it, usefulness for others, the reality of making a profit.
3) We calculate the risks.
- Never start a business with borrowed money if you are not sure that everything will work out for you and you will pay off your debts.
- Designate for yourself that point, beyond which you will never, under any circumstances, go.
4) Start small. No businessman started out right away with building a corporation globally. Everyone started with something small, many even without money. I think you all know these success stories. There are a lot of such people in the business environment. Never get caught up in large-scale business ideas that require a lot of initial investment. Assess your capabilities adequately. Its easy to screw up at the start. And there are also a large number of such people, just few people know them. Personally, I know many similar failures.
5) Choose the niche you are good at! Dont start your first business from scratch in an area where you dont know anything. Not everyone can be restaurateurs or fashion designers. But you may be looking to start a business with a partner who understands what you are not good at. Then you can take a chance. But again, agree on everything on the shore.
6)Go to the goal with confidence! If you are in doubt or afraid of something, then it is better not to start your own business at all. You must be confident in your abilities and that you will succeed, and also be prepared for the fact that the idea burns out. It is very important to enjoy what you are doing, and then the petty troubles in the business will be easier to bear.
7)Quality is important in business! It doesnt matter in goods or services! Never start a business if your offer is inferior in quality than existing ones on the market. Of course, by great chance you can get the first customers, but by doing so you ruin your reputation in the bud and quickly close.

I hope that my suggestions were helpful))

Greetings from Kazakhstan! Your project is extremely innovative, but I would like to offer you some specific tips.
1. Reduce the product vision to one sentence
Where to start a startup? Understand what exactly you are doing. If your startup's vision doesn't fit into one sentence, then it will be very difficult for you to convince users that you are doing something really worthwhile. In addition, without a well-defined vision, you are deprived of a reference point that helps you make the right strategic and tactical decisions. Examples of startups with a clear vision:

Airbnb: Creating an open world where everyone can feel at home, wherever they are.
Basecamp: Communication is the foundation of project management.
Lyft (an Uber-like startup): to provide people with pleasant and affordable rides.
Airbnb is a startup with a clear vision

What's the difference between mission, vision and purpose? We covered this issue in an article on the Happy Startup Canvas model used by IT startups.

2. Take a Lean Startup
How to organize a startup that will use resources at a minimum? A lean approach will help here. Lean startup means that you need to attract as few people as possible (the first version of the product could well be created by a team of three people, or you can outsource the creation of MVP) and use cheaper solutions or open source.

For example, the creation of a startup UARoads was not without the use of many open source solutions (OpenStreetMap, Mapnik, Leaflet JavaScript library, etc.), and we involved employees who have their own car for testing. Every day, UARoads receives about 1200 tracks from users, and more than 57 thousand people have joined the service.

Startup UARoads

3. Set deadlines and an accurate budget for the project
Starting a business from scratch involves determining the scope of work, time and budget. How to balance between them? It is worth starting a startup with an MVP, including only critical functions, the number of which may change during the development stage, and set fixed deadlines and budget. Such restrictions will serve as an incentive for your team and motivate them to seek out-of-the-box solutions.

4. Start creating your product from its centerpiece
Basecamp calls this approach Epicenter Design: you start to design the most important part. For example, if you need to create a startup like Medium, then the main element will be the online publishing tool and the article itself. And the design of everything else (profiles, menus, search filters, etc.) is developed only later. With this approach, from the very first day of work on a project, you focus on the most important. For web applications, the process looks like this:

Brainstorm.
Preparing paper sketches. It's much faster and cheaper than creating layouts right away and allows you to quickly make changes or redraw something.
Electronic layout.
HTML screens.
The code.
5. Offer fewer features
You're solving a problem, right? Then give up the beauties that have nothing to do with your decision! Modern users are more likely to choose products with limited functionality (Snapchat), and services like Facebook are considered boring.

Get in the habit of rejecting any new feature proposal. The same goes for feature requests that users submit: consider adding only after it becomes clear that more and more people are asking for the feature. For example, Twitter only started using link previews in 2015, nine years after launch.
The main danger here lies in the fact that in order to create features, some functional improvements (that is, other features) are often needed, which quickly turn the product into something complex and incomprehensible.

6. Remove unnecessary settings
You don't want users to be stuck for half an hour at the settings screen and then just close your app or startup site, do you? Then help them with a choice. After all, it is not so important whether 5 or 7 posts are displayed on the main page. If any nuance is important to users, they will tell you about it, and you can change such minor details.

7. Give your product a personality
Guided by the vision and knowledge of your audience, create a product that has character and principles of its own. Someone may not like them, but those you are targeting will simply be delighted - what you need for a startup!

For example, the corporate messenger Slack has won the hearts of many developers, but there are plenty of opponents to use it. And MailChimp is hard to imagine without a helper monkey:

Mailchimp is a startup with personality

8. Build an intuitive product
Users only look at the instructions and FAQ when something stops working. Make their lives easier: A brief onboarding should be enough to explain how everything works. By the way, check out our article on simple and straightforward interfaces for the web.

9. Don't try to solve problems that don't exist yet.
One such challenge is scaling. Startups worry that they will not be able to quickly scale the service if the MVP is quickly successful. But getting ready for this is 100% impossible. It is much more important to quickly make changes to the product and identify the startup business model that will work for you. And, of course, please your users.

10. Generate Interest Before Launching Your Startup
Here's how to promote a startup in the best Hollywood tradition:

A couple of months before the launch, launch a "teaser": start blogging, show your logo, give hints about what you are working on and start gaining subscribers and first followers on social networks.
Two weeks before launching a startup, switch to preview mode: start talking about features, show a couple of screenshots or videos, tell about use cases. Give out a dozen invites to stir up interest in your startup.

We hope these tips will help you move from idea to startup faster.

And the design of everything else (profiles, menus, search filters, etc.) is developed only later. With this approach, from the very first day of work on a project, you focus on the most important. For web applications, the process looks like this:

Brainstorm.
Preparing paper sketches. It's much faster and cheaper than creating layouts right away and allows you to quickly make changes or redraw something.
Electronic layout.
HTML screens.
The code.
5. Offer fewer features
You're solving a problem, right? Then give up the beauties that have nothing to do with your decision! Modern users are more likely to choose products with limited functionality (Snapchat), and services like Facebook are considered boring.

Get in the habit of rejecting any new feature proposal. The same goes for feature requests that users submit: consider adding only after it becomes clear that more and more people are asking for the feature. For example, Twitter only started using link previews in 2015, nine years after launch.
The main danger here lies in the fact that in order to create features, some functional improvements (that is, other features) are often needed, which quickly turn the product into something complex and incomprehensible.

6. Remove unnecessary settings
You don't want users to be stuck for half an hour at the settings screen and then just close your app or startup site, do you? Then help them with a choice. After all, it is not so important whether 5 or 7 posts are displayed on the main page. If any nuance is important to users, they will tell you about it, and you can change such minor details.

7. Give your product a personality
Guided by the vision and knowledge of your audience, create a product that has character and principles of its own. Someone may not like them, but those you are targeting will simply be delighted - what you need for a startup!

For example, the corporate messenger Slack has won the hearts of many developers, but there are plenty of opponents to use it. And MailChimp is hard to imagine without a helper monkey:

Mailchimp is a startup with personality

8. Build an intuitive product
Users only look at the instructions and FAQ when something stops working. Make their lives easier: A brief onboarding should be enough to explain how everything works. By the way, check out our article on simple and straightforward interfaces for the web.

9. Don't try to solve problems that don't exist yet.
One such challenge is scaling. Startups worry that they will not be able to quickly scale the service if the MVP is quickly successful. But getting ready for this is 100% impossible. It is much more important to quickly make changes to the product and identify the startup business model that will work for you. And, of course, please your users.

10. Generate Interest Before Launching Your Startup
Here's how to promote a startup in the best Hollywood tradition:

A couple of months before the launch, launch a "teaser": start blogging, show your logo, give hints about what you are working on and start gaining subscribers and first followers on social networks.
Two weeks before launching a startup, switch to preview mode: start talking about features, show a couple of screenshots or videos, tell about use cases. Give out a dozen invites to stir up interest in your startup.

We hope these tips will help you move from idea to startup faster.

Greetings from Kazakhstan! Your project is extremely innovative, but I would like to offer you some specific tips.
1. Reduce the product vision to one sentence
Where to start a startup? Understand what exactly you are doing. If your startup's vision doesn't fit into one sentence, then it will be very difficult for you to convince users that you are doing something really worthwhile. In addition, without a well-defined vision, you are deprived of a reference point that helps you make the right strategic and tactical decisions. Examples of startups with a clear vision:

Airbnb: Creating an open world where everyone can feel at home, wherever they are.
Basecamp: Communication is the foundation of project management.
Lyft (an Uber-like startup): to provide people with pleasant and affordable rides.
Airbnb is a startup with a clear vision

What's the difference between mission, vision and purpose? We covered this issue in an article on the Happy Startup Canvas model used by IT startups.

2. Take a Lean Startup
How to organize a startup that will use resources at a minimum? A lean approach will help here. Lean startup means that you need to attract as few people as possible (the first version of the product could well be created by a team of three people, or you can outsource the creation of MVP) and use cheaper solutions or open source.

For example, the creation of a startup UARoads was not without the use of many open source solutions (OpenStreetMap, Mapnik, Leaflet JavaScript library, etc.), and we involved employees who have their own car for testing. Every day, UARoads receives about 1200 tracks from users, and more than 57 thousand people have joined the service.

3. Set deadlines and an accurate budget for the project
Starting a business from scratch involves determining the scope of work, time and budget. How to balance between them? It is worth starting a startup with an MVP, including only critical functions, the number of which may change during the development stage, and set fixed deadlines and budget. Such restrictions will serve as an incentive for your team and motivate them to seek out-of-the-box solutions.

4. Start creating your product from its centerpiece
Basecamp calls this approach Epicenter Design: you start to design the most important part. For example, if you need to create a startup like Medium, then the main element will be the online publishing tool and the article itself. And the design of everything else (profiles, menus, search filters, etc.) is developed only later. With this approach, from the very first day of work on a project, you focus on the most important.

Political power has been centralized in Leh, the capital, and a dependence created on an outside money economy. Tragically, the Ladakhis have been made to think of themselves and their culture as backward and inferior, and have been encouraged to embrace a Western, urban lifestyle

Over the last three decades or so, Ladakh has been increasingly opened up to economic development, exposing the people to a range of outside influences they had not encountered before: advertising and corporate media, tourism, pesticides, western-style schooling, and consumer goods.

As in other traditional cultures, the Ladakhis also had a deep connection to the land. People depended on the living world around them for their basic needs; with few exceptions, their food, clothing and shelter were all produced within the region.

Importantly, this interdependence was structurally reinforced by the economy. People relied on each other for the very food they ate; they exchanged seeds, they shared draft animals for ploughing and threshing. And these economic exchanges provided a structural relationship of give-and-take that bound people together in ways that provided both material and psychological security.

For more than a thousand years, Ladakh was home to a thriving culture. Traditions of frugality and cooperation, coupled with an intimate and location-specific knowledge of the environment, enabled the Ladakhis not only to survive but to prosper. Everyone had enough to eat; families and communities were strong; the status of women was high.

Hello! Your project is extremely innovative, but I would like to suggest some specific advice. Some of them require making choices. And often this choice is really baffling.

1. MVP versus Ideal Product
1.1. "When you launch a project, you can never tell in advance how the market will react to it. Your vision for your product is a hallucination. No need for fantasies. Start with MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and then use Lean Startup (a set of short iterations). This is the only way to create all successful companies. As a result, you yourself will be surprised to see the business you have created. "

1.2. "People don't know what they really need. A poll from the late 17th century showed that passengers desire faster horses. Only Ford, the genius of foresight, gave the world a puffing iron monster called a car."
"No user in the world saw an iPhone until the genius of Steve Jobs completely, from start to finish, formed and brought to the market the perfect product. A few months before the iPhone was released, Jobs ordered a complete overhaul of the product. He did this only because the smartphone that was almost gone into production did not suit the only user - Steve. Smartphones existed before the iPhone, and they all failed. The reason for the failures is simple - the electronics weren't good enough. Do you know what these were the firms and models? It is true that no one remembers these names. "
"Clients simply are not able to desire something completely new - they only know the familiar things."
"For a fund like Sequoia Capital to invest in you, you must have a Strong Vision. Your idea should be bold, strong, initially worked out, breaking the established stereotypes. Therefore, initially she will be hostile and resisted. Forget about any user, even a Stanford professor, giving you product advice. People will call your service gibberish. This is normal for a disruptive startup. The new scares people. But you mustn't give up. "
In general, don't listen to customers. Believe in yourself. You must know what to do.
Such is the advice from respected investors, backed up by facts. Very reasonable. Old Steve can't be wrong.

3. Singles versus team
3.1. Alone, you are doomed. The Y combinator (Harvard among accelerators) simply does not accept startups with fewer than two team members. And for good reason. First, if you are alone in a team, then you cannot convince even your friend to believe in your product. Needless to say about the whole market. Second, the to-do list for a successful launch is too long for one person. There will be neither time nor competence. You will have to program, draw designs and sketches, prepare pitches, presentations, engage in networking, accounting, open a company, and understand contracts. Isn't the list too long even for Alexander the Great?
Plus, Bill Gates had Paul Allen. Larry Page has Sergey Brin. Jobs has Wozniak. That says it all. Need more arguments? But:
3.2. Nginx is a complex piece of software written by one person. Dropbox, whose capitalization exceeded 10 billion, Drew Houston launched alone, and then frantically searched for a co-founder. And finally, Nikola Tesla - this name alone says a lot.

You should feel that you can turn the world around even alone. Otherwise, you won't succeed with the whole team.

4. To take or not to take money from investors?
4.1. You will be committing a crime against your project and against your team if you do not take the investors' money at the moment they are offered to you. Paul Graham. Startup guru. Master Yoda Y-combinator.
"Markets move in a sinusoidal manner. From time to time they are in a fever with the financial crisis. Force majeure happens. These are tough times. Even if you are doing well financially now, take the money. Then they will press you, but nobody will give you money. The project may show negative dynamics in the future. A financial cushion made of banknotes will help you survive difficult times and overcome the "Valley of Death". Otherwise, a crisis will break out, and you will die with your 100% of the company. "
As he looks into the water. Valuable advice. We must follow. But:
4.2. "Don't take investors' money. Fight for the project to the last ruble without surrendering to greedy financial tycoons. Develop on your own as long as a crumb of bread remains in the house. The percentage of your company that needs to be given back in return for investment is too valuable. Today you will give 35% for a million dollars, and tomorrow you will be begged to take 100 million dollars for 3.5%.
"You have to be an idiot to mindlessly throw away a share in a project for some candy wrappers that will still go down the drain."
And remember: "The temptation to give up will be especially strong shortly before victory." Indeed, even Buddha could not have put it better.

5. At what age to start?
5.1. "A million dollar business on the network can only be built by a person who does not yet know that this is an unattainable goal." A successful startup is always a step beyond the existing one, it is building a new world. Only young people have a fresh perspective on things. Only young people see problems that people over 25 simply do not have. Can you think of SnapChat at 40? Names like Zuckerberg, Page and Brin, Kalkanis are clearly signaling the market to invest in the young.
5.2. "An old horse will not spoil the furrow." Young people learn from their mistakes for a long time, and this process is costly for the company. Building a successful business requires wisdom that comes only with experience. Examples of Jack Walsh, Larry Ellison, who built a business at only 35, show the benefits of experienced people. Statistics show that people over 40 are 80% more successful than young people.
"When we invest in young people, our money goes to their education. The team fails, the business will collapse. Then they start a new company, using the experience gained. After several similar iterations, the older founders finally have a successful business. The wise investor will only invest at this moment. "

6. Do only what you know well. Versus. Discover the unknown: treasures are waiting for the horizon
6.1. "Launching a startup is like jumping off a cliff and trying to build an airplane in flight." Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn Creator, Billionaire, Investor). Throw yourself into battle, do the incomprehensible. In the modern world, competition is so intense that all known problems have already been resolved. If thousands of people know about the problem, then you do not have the advantage of a pioneer. The largest companies pay millions of analysts to report known issues. After that, the giants cast thousands of their employees to solve these problems. Everyone wants to make money. You cannot compete with Google. Therefore, tackle only those problems that analysts will never know about. How to do it? Only by engaging in a completely new direction in which no one has experience, including you. You will be the first to gain experience in the process.
6.2. Do only what you know well. Successful start-ups are obtained solely on the inside, on a deep knowledge of the industry. Long-term work in some areas gives a person an understanding of problems that others simply do not see. You need to quickly overcome the "Valley of Death" and make a profit. It is an unaffordable luxury to waste resources on experimentation. For every Columbus, there are thousands of seafarers still feeding fish at the bottom of coral reefs.

7. Know your monetization or just attract users
7.1. Before starting the project, decide on how the service will make money. Do you have a ton of users, cool retention (return) and insane growth that Facebook never dreamed of? Wait to rejoice, history remembers a ton of these failed companies. As a rule, they sell a ruble for 10 kopecks. For example, free services for uploading pictures and inserting to forums, services for free uploading files - such projects are rapidly gaining popularity, but, like two-hundred-kilogram boars, they constantly consume the capacity of server disks and the bandwidth of your communication channels. Soon, losses start to amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. And so it will be until you run out of money. After all, closing such a traffic project for a startup is worse than stepping on your throat.
More examples - YouTube's appetite was reaching a million dollars a day before it started bringing in the first cent. It's good that it was acquired by Google, which had that kind of money. A lot of YouTube's competitors just went broke. Or recall Groupon, which sold other people's services at half price - soon restaurants, whose revenue fell sharply, refused to serve customers at half price.
7.2. The main commandment of Silicon Valley investors is that a project should focus on only one thing at a time. Growth or monetization. The combination is equal to death. Making a profit from a project that has no users is problematic. So forget about monetization and only think about user growth and retention. We will give you the money. Look who has taken over the Internet now - giants like Pinterest, which has reached billions in capitalizations without even thinking about making money. You know, when you're big, they just buy you for that. As was the case with the hopelessly unprofitable Tumbrl (Yahoo bought it for a billion). In our world, it is important to be a big hippo. Nothing else matters. Instagram, SnapChat, WatsApp, Viber and others like them. There is a tendency that is criminal to ignore. The rest of the world just doesn't understand anything about the internet. Just create a project that users will love, and the money will come to you.

8. Is a technical director needed right from the start?
8.1. From the very first day you found a startup, you need a good CTO. Better if it is a genius with Asperger's syndrome. A quiet type, avoiding people and spending the whole day at the computer simply because he has nothing else to do. Such a person can hack the Pentagon network in three days, asking for only two burgers and a two-liter bottle of Coca-Cola.
If you start without those. director, then your project will fail. You just waste a lot of time, initial motivation (fuse is very important), but you can never do cool tech stuff, and your service will go down at the first load. You will have to rewrite all the code, and this is at the moment when the money has already run out, and competitors saw your takeoff and copied your service in two and a half days.
Freelancers will begin to blackmail you, realizing how much you need a new function, and will take the project hostage. One crafty freelancer can suck a hapless startup's wallet dry. As a result, the latter will go around the world with a cart, taken away from the nearest supermarket.
Quality paid development is a utopia. For example, Indians (inexpensive literate freelancers) confuse a footer with a header. Think for yourself, your English is a foreign language and theirs too. Broken phone in a square. Belarusian developers will take money and disappear, realizing the opacity of legal boundaries.
After all, there are many more gifted technical directors than there are good entrepreneurs with ideas. I will tell you exactly. Just look at GitHub - how many talents there are who mold beautiful dummies, and do not find use for their technical genius. They need an entrepreneur with an idea, they themselves are looking for such.
8.2. Why do you need a CTO? You can always hire a freelance student or start a WordPress startup like Groupon did. Jumla to help you. Are you not talking seriously? Are you a serious entrepreneur yourself? Most of the hypotheses are tested with DruPal.
Pinterest was made by non-tech guys. Yes, they changed several development teams, but they knew what they were doing and in the end they won. As the project grows, those. You will need a director, but first you need to do more realistic things. You can't find a good programmer during the day with fire. Skilled guys work for large companies. Headhunters from IT giants are setting up surveillance and round-the-clock surveillance of the homes of specialist coders. As soon as programmers step outside their home, they are immediately seduced by multi-million dollar contracts. Recruiters shake puffy checkbooks in front of them and even show them pictures of yachts that will become the property of programmers after just three years at Google. So don't even dream. Look, the Silicon Valley forums are filled with sobs from founders who can't code. It gets to the point where founders with a design or economics background start learning Ruby or Python themselves. There is nothing to do. The best way out is the friendly guys from India. Take it inexpensively.
Such is the advice. Sounds reasonable. Looks logical, especially if you remember 8.1.

9. Work with or without rest
9.1. Work hard around the clock, otherwise you will achieve a result called "nothing." Bloomberg, who became a billionaire and mayor of New York, early in his career at a brokerage firm worked even during lunchtime, when everyone else went out to eat hot dogs and drink coffee. How many of his colleagues do you think became millionaires? That's right, only he is alone.
In the Y-combinator, it is recommended to close at home and not go outside in the first couple of months of work on the project. Don't go out at all. Order food at home and invite housekeepers. Of course, do it over the Internet.
Do you have a family or a girlfriend? The startup is prohibited from knowing these terms.
9.2. Strike a balance. Mandatory time for rest, family and friends is necessary - this will allow you to collect your thoughts and simply increase your work efficiency.
Do you know the story about the driven horse? Or about sharpening an ax. Two foresters argued who would cut down 10 larches faster. One rolled up his sleeves, and only the chips flew. And the second will chop, chop, and then sharpen the ax. So the second one won. It says a lot.
Not only will you be left without money in case of failure, you will also lose all your friends and family. Think about it. The moral support provided by the family cannot be overemphasized.

Just as scientists have time and again solved many of humanitys problems, for example by mitigating famine and disease that plague third-world nations, they now must solve the worlds next biggest problem.

On the street, trucks spewed thick black smoke that choked the air. I held my breath and hoped that no one would use the darkness as a cover for crime. During the following two weeks, as I helped conduct high school science workshops for Liberian students,I witnessed a broad range of problems afflicting the West African failed state. And in that time, I made the decision to devote my future career as a scientist to solving them

This is certainly a difficult task. However, if we do not do it now, I think it will be too late. All humans have desire for benefits; this cannot be helped. But by controlling that feeling, and by starting to think about others, I believe change is possible. When that change of mind brings about change in science, I believe we will begin to see a better world.

October 17, 2020 15:13

feel that right now we need to stop thinking about I and start thinking in terms of You. If we do not develop science with a selfless spirit, we would not be able to create science that is truly for the good of the world.

Civilization has made remarkable advances, and these reflect human progress. Along the way, however, people lost sight and became only able to see themselves. As a result, we see disparity of wealth and gaps between nations.

October 17, 2020 15:12

I have been thinking about what science should do, but during the process, I realized that humans come before science. It is humans that develop science, and it is humans that use science. In other words, science is a creation of humans. Then the role of science must be the role of humans. In order to build a better world, however, human beings must change first.

The state of the world is not as good as we think it is. In order to improve global conditions, therefore, we must proactively explore ways to make best use of scientific accomplishments. I myself too, would like to engage in such research when I become an adult.

October 17, 2020 15:09

If we are really concerned about the world, we should visit different places themselves, experience life there, and create science that could remedy the problems found in such areas. If that is not possible, we should at least do our best to collect information and understand the current conditions of the world.

October 17, 2020 15:08

What should we make out this situation? Even if people say that they are dedicated to helping the world, they are dedicated to helping themselves after all.

Personally, I believe that it is only good for a small number of developed nations. This is evident if you look at how science progresses in a way that is completely irrelevant to the plight of developing regions and nations. In other words, people who are advancing science have only themselves in mind.

October 17, 2020 15:06

Science is useful yet, if its use is misguided, it will end up going in a bad direction. Today, science itself is evolving and changing rapidly. We often hear that science is for the good of humanity, but can we really say that it is for all humanity?

Take nuclear power as an example. Presently nuclear power is used to produce energy, and because it has great power we are able to obtain a large amount of energy from it. But if this tremendous power is misused, terrible consequences will follow. An atomic bomb was actually dropped on Japan, killing many and leaving serious aftereffects on peopl

Secondly, students who develop a strong passion for science will be able to establish, nurture, develop and follow their chosen paths through life from an early age, hence, not only setting themselves up for a brighter future ahead, but also bringing us the enhanced ability for positive change through our leaders of tomorrow.

October 17, 2020 15:03

Applyingthe DSI in this way will allow for two major outcomes. One, students will be granted a wider awareness of science and technology from an earlier level, and will thus be able to acknowledge, address and act on pressing issues within the community.

Filters are currently used in many ways. If the efficacy of chloroplast could be incorporated into these filters, they could reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during combustion of fossil fuels. Installing such filters on all exhaust outlets could have a huge effect. We have to continue coming up with ways of converting carbon dioxide emissions into oxygen.

The chloroplast gel would then be inserted into this pocket. The chloroplast would be made so that it is effective for one day. By wearing this mask when they go out, people could reduce the amount of carbon dioxide they emit while breathing.

So, having more plants can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide. Vegetation in urban areas declined rapidly due to increases in the number of buildings. However, having learned that this affects global warming, campaigns are being launchedto increase greenery and remedy this situation.

October 17, 2020 14:39

I think greenery campaigns are the best means of reducing carbon dioxide. This is because plants photosynthesize and convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, and although plants do emit carbon dioxide at night, they absorb a greater quantity during the day when the sun is out.

October 17, 2020 14:29

The power which we get from the 18 metres head of the waterfall combined with the 14.16 litres per second flow(volume) of the waterfall will come into:Power = Head X Flow X Gravity= 18 X 14.16 X 9.81= 2,500 watts

The children and community of Cilulumpang helped me to assemble the turbine into position which would continue to revolve processing energy from the water into electricity

October 17, 2020 14:27

Cilulumpang has great potential for water energy which comes from Curug Dendeng Waterfall in which the water energy combined with a turbine and dynamo could be utilized and converted as a source of electric energy which we call as Electric Generator Water Reel

It is quite surprising, in the 21st century, many villages in Indonesia still do not have electricity. Almost 48% from the Indonesian population of 230,472,933 livein areas without electricity supply due to the absence of a power plant capacity and difficult areas to access

October 17, 2020 14:22

However, there is only one thing not in Cilulumpang that is lights. Electricity is a dream, longed by the children and the community. There is no electricity at school. Mothers cook with woods, children study under the patch light and they use small flashlight to light at night

Cilulumpang is the name of hamlet in the village of Cempaka, Mekarjaya that is reachable within 4 hours drive from Jakarta where I reside and 2 hours walk to reach it

October 17, 2020 14:20

The chirping birds, fertile rice fields, clean-fresh-air, the clear blue sky and the shadow of children in the friendly community of Cilulumpang Village in the mountains of South Cianjur give me energy and power to reach them although I have to walk along the 3 miles terrain.

I have not got a definite dream for the future, but I would like to become either a scientist who confronts fearful diseases such as new types of influenza, or to do a job that enables me to distribute new technologies fairly to the people who need them

October 15, 2020 18:10

However, I think that is easy for us to say because we are Japanese. Everyone in the world should be given a vaccine. I have heard the vaccine is still under development, but when there are made, I think they should be distributed to everyone equally. It is not right that rich people are helped and poor people are not. We are all human beings so our lives are all of the same value. To be equally useful for all people I think the beauty of science lies in this aspect of fairness. There are benefits of science that remain inaccessible to some people, but without a doubt, we also need some beautiful aspects that are accessible to all

October 15, 2020 18:09

his is because medical technology affects peoples lives, and whether they live or die. Medical technology is a field of science that should be equally available to both the rich and the poor.

and televisions keep us entertained. Such technologies are useful when available. Science is a necessity for me now. However, many things are not really necessary for people to live as humans.

October 15, 2020 18:04

Science develops over time and things that were impossible long ago are now possible. Consider air conditioning and food preservation, for example. Appliances such as washing machines and irons make many peoples lives easier,

October 15, 2020 18:01

. In other words, in India, there are lots of people who lead healthy and active lives without the advantages of science, even in urban areas. People can livewithout the use of technology

October 15, 2020 18:01

I have always used large quantities of electricity without giving it a second thought, but in India, I learned that many poor people cannot afford to use much electricity and others do not even own electrical appliances

October 15, 2020 17:59

In Japan, where electrical outages seldom occur, I took having a constant electricity supply for granted. It was not until I moved to India that I understood the convenience of refrigerators and the value of electricity.

October 15, 2020 17:58

Foodgoes off if the outage exceeds four hours so I understand why my mother gets upset. From her perspective, opening the fridge during an outage is outrageously mischievous.

October 15, 2020 17:58

Hurry up and close it

My mother reminded me sharply. Oh no, I have done it again. I hurriedly close the fridge. Habits from Japan die hard and I do it time and again. I am living in India because of my fathers work and electrical outages happen all the time here.

C for compassion, I for interdependence, E for empathy while N for neutrality. Science is about the perfect combination of knowledge and humanity values. Only by understanding them, we can create a better world through science and technology.

October 15, 2020 17:56

Science dares us to dream the impossible, gives us the courage to venture into the unknowns, and challenges us to be determined when we are doubtful. But to me, the word Science has a different meaning too, where S stands for solidarity,

October 15, 2020 17:51

As a generation of the new millennium, I suggest that a holistic approach in science and technology should be taken. To form a more equitable and sustainable world, we have to ensure that science is being rightfully used to tackle educational, environmental, economic, and social problems

October 15, 2020 17:49

A tremendous increase in the consumption of fossil fuel has helped us greatly in transportation and brings in wealth to some countries, yet the environmental destructions caused such as the depletion of ozone layer due to greenhouse gases have put our Earth at stakes.

With the growing understanding in genomics and biotechnology, cloning is made possible but artificial reproduction might cause a huge impact on the natural selection in the survival of all living beings.

Standing at the crossroad, with much fear and excitement, my thoughts reeled back to the milestones achieved in science and technology in the past. We have Robert Hooke who came up with the Hookes Law and the spring which has been very useful in many devices

October 15, 2020 17:46

As I put my thoughts into words, another question pops out of nowhere, scientific discoveries have brought us to the exhilarating world today, but where are we, the younger generation going to bring the world?

and material engineering. From this research, I hope we can make zero-waste consumption, a principle states that everything which consumed by human can be recycled by nature.

October 15, 2020 17:32

To answer this challenge, I wish I could engage in a research that involved microbiology, biochemistry, and ecology together to find those materials. I know I still need some help from other majors like chemistry engineering, electrical engineering,

October 15, 2020 17:30

My optimistic mind says that if we concern about researches in biochemistry to find compatible materials for electronic equipment, the pile of broken keyboards which I found its photo in internet will be disappeared because its component can be eaten by bacteria.

Asus and Fujitsu, have been becoming a pioneer in the making of eco-book. They have used bamboo and cedar wood to replace the using of PVC for laptops body. PVC produces hazardous gases for our environment such as chlorinated dioxins, a persistent material if it is burnt

October 15, 2020 17:26

My opinion about biodegradable material for electronic equipment could be a good solution for electronic company to make this earth a better world for human living. Perhaps, this suggestion seems absurd but I have information that two electronic companies, Asus

October 15, 2020 17:25

This condition may become a huge problemin the future when the number of people increases and it is impossible to find wide area for e-waste recycling. Where we will process them is a question we have to answer together, if we want a safe and green environment for our children

iPod, BlackBerry, and Nintendos Wii are examples of common technology upgrading. If there is a new edition of them launched, everybody seems to have the newest one as part of lifestyle.

October 15, 2020 17:23

Besides the age shifting of electronic equipment users, kinds of electronic good which develop every season make the problem of electronic waste or e-waste getting worse.

October 15, 2020 17:22

This declaration consists of two main ideas, The Water and The Waste. I was involved in composing The Waste declaration which one of the point says, We will separate wastes between the organic and the non-organic ones.

October 15, 2020 17:17

When I heard about this contest, I was remembering my first conference about living environment held by Bobo magazine, the oldest kids magazine in Indonesia. It was 2001 and I was in fifth grade, more than 30 children gathered from almost all provinces to make a declaration called Declaration of Children Conference 2001 in Living Environment

think to make the world a better place to live in electricity has an important role to play. I want to study in the field of energy and hydropower which will create major changes in such areas. To make revolution in a place we should focus on energy and electricityas it is the basis of every aspect of development leading to equitability,prosperity and sustainability.

October 15, 2020 17:15

If electricity could be used in an efficient way then it definitely helps to replace firewood and minerals. It could thus help in the preservation of forests and different herbs. Thus electricity could help in the conservation of ecosystem thus leading to a sustainable development of the place

October 15, 2020 17:14

giving them ways to live an equitable life. These areas are rich in different types of resources like herbs, minerals, forests .but due to the lack of information and proper utilization they have been destroyed and used in an unmanaged way.

October 15, 2020 17:09

The people of these areas are quite deprived because they are not having an access to the information. Media like internet, television, fm radios have not reached there. So people are not aware about their rights and facilities.

October 15, 2020 17:08

It can create more chances of job creation. If there are more job opportunities than it will definitely help to alleviate poverty which will ultimately lead to prosperity

October 15, 2020 17:07

Local industries like herbal industry, handloom carpet, paper industry will definitely get a lot of aid from this. If there is enough electricity than the traditional industry can be modernized making it more efficient and productive.

October 15, 2020 17:06

When the electricity is abundant thanit definitely helps in the development of job opportunities. Many kinds of local cottage industries can be promoted that can create a lot of employment opportunities thus encouraging the local empowerment.

October 15, 2020 17:05

One village, one micro hydro power could be the vision for the betterment of those area. It can bring a lot of changes in such areas enhancing their economic and social life

Likewise there have not been any activities that can make them aware about sustainability. No any better income generation activities and employment opportunities have been made. So they are wasting the resources around and destroying forests for fire wood

October 15, 2020 16:55

. The most favorable ways of living for them is the traditional method of agriculture, carpentry, fishery and working as potters. Can this life give them a prosperous life? They were born poor and will die poor.

October 15, 2020 16:53

As they are not having good quality education and do not have access to good government jobs, they are not able to make a proper reservations of their rights. This has made them to do low menial jobs not providing them enough wages to have the basic needs fulfilled

October 15, 2020 16:52

So this is also affecting the overall life style of such places. The people there have been deprived from proper facilities of quality education which has not made them competitive and capable.

October 15, 2020 16:50

We live in the urban areas and we are having such problems than what must have been to others living in rural areas of western Nepal? Most of the villages remain dark and they are not able to have the facilities of electricity. This ultimately hampers them from having easy access to internet, education, health, entertainment and information

October 15, 2020 16:50

There is a lot of power cut off in our place, Pokhara. The production of electricity is very less as compared to the demand. Still we are having problem to get an easy access to the technological update like internet and other electricity devices

October 15, 2020 16:48

computer records have made public records easier to obtain in much of the developing world. We are the people of earth, ready to overcome any challenge that faces us, ready to help others because we care; ready to build a smarterplanet.

Additionally, I, along with my team, raised 3,000 DOLLARS donated to a public library to buy an interactive white board, or a Smart Board, that displayed our team website and tips to how to stay green, including a quiz so young children could learn.

October 15, 2020 16:43

On both topics, I gave suggestions to the town board about how our town could prevent these two cataclysmic events from happening. For global warming, I suggested, after evaluating two local libraries on how green they were, that the libraries could accommodate small changes in their system, like motion sensor lights which turn off automatically.

October 15, 2020 16:41

Even as kids, we can use science to help educate our communities. Earlier this year, I participated in an international robotics program where I researched and reported about climate change and global warming.

This way, we would NOT have to waste water while we waited for water to turn hot or cold. Imagine a smarter energy grid that was capable of monitoring energy use and diverting energy to places that needed it

October 15, 2020 16:39

We can also use our knowledge of science to develop better ways to deliver energy and to also better control how much energy we use. Imagine something as simple as a sensor installed in all our taps so that it would beep when the desired water temperature was reached.

Although EcoFuels is not yet scalable for practical use, the technology that it depends on, such as capturing carbon from the atmosphere and converting carbon dioxide into a synthetic fuel using the Fischer-Tropsch process,

October 15, 2020 16:35

morphing it into a synthetic fuel using a catalyzed chemical reaction. EcoFuels is notfundable for large regions, such as the whole of New York, but small cities around the world could depend on it.

October 15, 2020 16:34

Just recently, I participated in a program where children from all around the world would invent or innovate to create something that would help people. My innovation, a machine called EcoFuels, harnessed solar power and used that energy to change carbon dioxide in to carbon monoxide, and from there

October 15, 2020 16:33

As a typical American, I depend on energy. I am a New Yorker, and we need heat in winter and the occasional A.C. to cool us off. Maybe we are not ready to conserve that much energy, but there are certainly feasible ways to cut down on energy consumption.

. With the right support from scientists who are willing to serve as mentors and advocates, students like those at Marefat have the potential to become future leaders who can help further drive the direction of science in a positive way that benefits Afghanistan and the world at large.

October 15, 2020 16:30

Accompanying this future direction of science, I see a vanguard of scientists who understand that science has a role outside of research centers, and will champion teaching, public outreach, and advocacy in addition to advancing scientific research.

October 15, 2020 16:28

Simple items suchas salt, soap, water and rubbing alcohol become reagents to extract cheek-cell DNA. It is not much, but the students gain experience, build confidence in themselves, and are introduced to the scientific method.

October 15, 2020 16:27

Like other schools, Marefat faces many technological limitations. When our electricity runs out, as it does often, we use a mirror and sunlight to illuminate objectives on our compound light microscope.

October 15, 2020 16:26

Science instruction in Afghanistan has traditionally been dominated by the look-and-listen pedagogical approach, and does not engage students interests or encourage them to think critically.

October 15, 2020 16:25

I aim to study diseases and new drugs that can help alleviate the clinical burden on resource poor nations at the molecular level.Through teaching, I have also come to see research and education as complementary.

October 15, 2020 16:25

I hope to partake in translational pharmacological and molecular medicine research in which I can combine my academic interests in medicine and science with my background in the developing world.

October 15, 2020 16:24

This requires clinicians with an intimate understanding of basic science, and scientists who have a clinical end goal through which they can promote world health equity by developing culturally sensitive and cost-effective medical solutions that address local public health needs.

In my vision for the future of science there is greater fusion between scientific research and global health imperatives, creating a more prosperous world through improved health care delivery in the world's most vulnerable regions.

October 15, 2020 16:20

I was reminded of the great needs and meager means Afghans have for health care, and thought long about what future applications of science and technology might do to enhance medicine and health education for Afghanistan and other developing nations.

October 15, 2020 16:20

In a Western high school setting answering this question would have been easy, but in this case I did not know how best to respond. In a resource-poor country like Afghanistan there is little health care infrastructure to address problems such as this.

October 15, 2020 16:19

Where the paved street ends, cars are forced to a halt by giant mounds of gravel placed in the middle of the dirt road for nearby construction workers. Hidden behind the mounds of gravel, a hundred meters down a muddy alley lined with dilapidated adobe houses, is a gem lost in the bustle of post-Taleban Kabul: Marefat High School

Ambon has huge potential and facilities to support me in this research, in nature, expert people, and traditional knowledge. In nature, beside the sea and the coastal areas, we get sunshine almost every day of the year for the photosynthesis process.

October 15, 2020 16:11

There is no waste product, andminimize pollution. I want to participate in this kind of research, to find more products to replace fossil oil. They are non pollutant, support the endurance of food, benefit to use also for medical purpose and all come from the sea.

October 15, 2020 16:10

Currently, there are some research on the micro algae or also known as phytoplankton, like Bacillariophyceae and Chlorophyceae. These sea products can produce bio diesel, bio ethanol, and its waste used as a fodder

October 15, 2020 16:10

I live in the time where the world is getting old. Pollution, deforestation, green house effect, climate change, global warming, are words that I often hear. All those give direct impact to quality of life of sea creatures. I want to participate in action to minimize all of them, even though in the future I want to become an oceanographer astronaut.

October 15, 2020 16:09

Then we can continue to get a quality of sea products and its carried benefits. It is a cycle of life of giving and receiving.

There are a lot of garbage, especially plastic garbage are floating, cast along the coastal side and sinking at the bottom of the sea. I saw also sedimentation of the sea as the impact of deforestation which damages the beach and coastal life.

October 15, 2020 16:06

But I am surprised to see that not too many people are taking good care of the sea. Many people only take benefit from the sea but give nothing except pollutant and damages in return. It is like symbiosis of parasitism.

May this occasion become a new opportunity to cry peace with our life in dialogue. Let peace prevail in the world and may each one of us become an instrument of dialogue and peace, starting from ourselves, convinced that the peace of the heart is the heart of peace

October 14, 2020 20:13

I hope one day Silsilah will be present also in Japan and we will give special attention to the religions and cultures present in this country. Thus, Silsilah has the mission to link people of different cultures and religions to remind all that we belong to the same human family, especially now when in the world there are groups who plan to use religions to divide us.

October 14, 2020 20:12

Yes, the culture of dialogue is a spirituality that moves people and unite them for a better future.

The Silsilah Dialogue Movement has the special mission to help all to move with hope. The Movement in Mindanao has the special mission to build peace among Muslims and Christians.

October 14, 2020 20:12

We have to rediscover the dialogue with others. This dialogue has to go beyond the circle of our family, culture, country and religion. We have to join hands with those who believe that together we can change the world, if we work together for the common good. And finally we are challenged also to be in dialogue with creation to understand the language of creation.

October 14, 2020 20:11

We have to rediscover the divine in us through prayer and meditation. This will help us to understand more that the life of each person has a value and has to be respected.

Rediscovering the divine in us we can dialogue with God; we are also challenged to rediscover the dialogue with ourselves and to be true with ourselves and cultivate the ecology of our hearts and minds.

October 14, 2020 20:10

On a few occasions during my visits to Japan I have met groups of young students asking me to write a message of peace in a card. I believe the message was May peace prevail on Earth. I was touched and I said to myself that indeed, this simple initiative can help to build the future peace, first in the hearts of these youth and eventually in the world.

October 14, 2020 20:07

I have been in Japan on a few occasions for conferences or to visit groups and friends and I have been touched by the efforts for peace of the Japanese people. In one occasion I was in Nagasaki in solidarity with the suffering of the Japanese people. That sad experience at the end of the Second World War has been for sure an occasion for the new generation to build peace.

October 14, 2020 20:06

We have to start from ourselves. We do not have to wait for the leaders of the world to pronounce the great policies of peace. Each one has to start from where we are

October 14, 2020 20:06

The sharing of this experience helps me to move to my conclusion by saying

Indeed, we have to consider ourselves brothers and sisters and we are invited to rediscover the mission of love in the midst of violence and conflict

October 14, 2020 20:05

One day, a very hot day, I was in my little nipa house praying. Going outside the room a little girl asked me Father what were you doing inside your house? With simplicity and with a smile I answered: I was praying. The little girl looked at me with big eyes and said: Ah, so the Christians also pray. Poor girl, she had seen only Christian soldiers fighting against the Muslims and she was surprised to discover this new aspect in the life of a Christian.

October 14, 2020 20:03

Before sharing with others the dream of Silsilah I experienced personally, in my adventure of life, how important it is to be sustained by our spiritual motivation in life.

I can never forget a little Muslim girl living in the village where I started my experience of immersion in the Muslim community, living a poor life like the people and trying to understand my life and mission among the Muslims.

October 14, 2020 20:03

I started to help and serve them out of love. I also decided to live with them and to understand their language, aspirations and dreams. That was the beginning of Silsilah for me, the word which means link and the chain with that part of the human family who was suffering in my mission. This spirit gave me the courage and inspiration to start some years after the Silsilah Dialogue Movement in Zamboanga City in 1984

October 14, 2020 20:02

For me as a Catholic priest, while I admire the many spiritual leaders of the world, I believe in the teaching of Jesus and his example of love unto to death. Jesus reminds me to love all. With this spirit I started my mission in the Philippines in 1977. It was there in my first mission in Siocon, Mindanao that I saw thousands of refugees, majority of them Muslims, displaced as a result of the armed rebellion against the government.

October 14, 2020 20:01

We have to do our part and to go out of our comfort zones and understand the deep meaning of life and the mystery of suffering.

In the life of Buddha we read that the young Siddhartha Gautama went out of his comfort zone, the palace of his father, and he experienced the suffering Dukkha of old age, sickness, poverty, death That experience was the beginning of his spiritual journey of purification and illumination.

October 14, 2020 20:00

We have to move, crying peace with our life in dialogue, making all possible efforts to purify our eyes to see peace, to purify our minds to understand peace, to purify our hearts to love peace and to purify our memory to work for peace.

October 14, 2020 19:59

This urges us to spend our life in the best of ways, ready to live and die, moved by love and not by violence. Only love and respect for all bring into the world the harmony that all of us dream for ourselves and for others. Indeed, the world needs our love and each one can do his or her part.

October 14, 2020 19:59

I arrived in the Philippines thirty five years ago with only the desire to love the people. I never thought I would reach this point and experience. I am grateful to God for the strength He has given to me, the courage to move and risk my life and the determination to believe that we belong to the same human family, that we all have the same dignity.

October 14, 2020 19:58

This journey and pilgrimage becomes an adventure. Yes, an adventure of love for us, because we know how to start, but we do not know what will happen to us along the way. This is also my experience

October 14, 2020 19:58

Living the Culture of Dialogue helps us to understand the value of human beings created with the same dignity and aspirations of life.

Living the Culture of Dialogue helps us to understand the value of human beings created with the same dignity and aspirations of life.

October 14, 2020 19:57

Thus, it is a spiritual journey that along the way becomes a kind of pilgrimage of people who live and promote this new culture that we call Culture of Dialogue. To live this spiritual experience we are challenged to move in the same direction, toward God or the divine, according to the belief of each one.

October 14, 2020 19:56

External events are only the challenges for us to go deeper in our understanding of dialogue to live and promote a spirituality of life in dialogue based on four pillars:
dialogue with God,
dialogue with the self
dialogue with others and
dialogue with creation

October 14, 2020 19:56

It is time for us to start again to invite Muslims and Christians to rebuild the culture of dialogue based on the spiritual values of each one. The culture of dialogue is dynamic; it starts from where we are, from our culture and our religion, including the situation in which we live and goes beyond fear and conflict.

October 14, 2020 19:55

I know that this conflict has destroyed a lot of the friendship that Silsilah and many of us who work for dialogue and peace have built in Zamboanga and Mindanao between Christians and Muslims.

October 14, 2020 19:54

Yes, thousands of houses have been burned and destroyed in Zamboanga City during the recent attack. We have to rebuild what is possible, but my concern goes beyond providing new homes for the victims of the conflict.

October 14, 2020 19:54

I have seen so much suffering. Some of us, Christian and Muslim leaders of Silsilah, have made great effort to tell all that this conflict in Zamboanga did not come up because of religious differences. Meanwhile some have tried to use the religious differences to put more fire in the conflict

October 14, 2020 19:53

I have seen in the evacuation centers thousands of people asking for help. I have seen the faces of the children there asking in silence Why have we been brought here?

October 14, 2020 19:52

Now they gradually have been allowed to go back to their neighborhoods but for most of them there are no houses to return to. The Emmaus Dialogue Community, a group which is part of Silsilah and which has been for more than twenty five years on the side of the poor Christians and Muslims living in the area which became the battle field, has suffered the same experience and pain of the people. Their community house and school located in the battle zone have been destroyed.

October 14, 2020 19:52

In the course of this conflict more than two hundred have been killed, hundreds have been wounded and more than one hundred thousand civilians have been forced to leave their houses and find accommodation in evacuation centers. From the evacuation centers these people have seen the smoke of the fire which razed their houses during the fighting which continued for three weeks.

Zamboanga is a beautiful city with almost one million people composed of Christians, Muslims and people of other faiths and cultures. Unfortunately on September 9, 2013 a group of rebels identified with a revolutionary group in Mindanao attacked the city, taking hundreds of civilians as hostages

October 14, 2020 19:51

Why is there so much violence in the world today? And why are there so many issues of conflict in the world that lead to other forms of violence? In a special way my mind and heart go at this moment to the sufferings of the people of Zamboanga City, the place where I live and where almost thirty years ago 1984 I started the Silsilah Dialogue Movement with some Christian and Muslim friends.

October 14, 2020 19:50

But, it is not easy to promote the Culture of Dialogue, Path to Peace when there is still so much violence in the world. While we are happy to celebrate peace during this event my mind and heart go to the many brothers and sisters in the world who suffer violence.

October 14, 2020 19:49

We are inspired by our own religions golden rules that promote the love of God and love of neighbour. We wish to tell the world that peace is possible, if it is sincere and it is an expression of love, respect and compassion

October 14, 2020 19:48

Guided by the understanding that dialogue starts from God and brings people back to God, we promote a spirituality of life-in-dialogue that challenge all of us, people of different cultures and religions, to move together for harmony, solidarity and peace.

October 14, 2020 19:47

Yes, we have chosen the narrow road of those who live and promote a Culture of Dialogue starting from a personal transformation in the midst of divisions and conflicts. This is for us the best way to work together for the social transformation toward a vision of peace, starting from the present reality of violence, injustices and all other kinds of realities of today

October 14, 2020 19:45

Dialogue often is considered a strategy, but for us dialogue is, first of all, spirituality because we consider dialogue an expression of love in action, silence and harmony.

October 14, 2020 19:44

Yes, thank you very much for appreciating our effort and mission based on spiritual values. We continue to believe that sustainable dialogue and peace must be based on spiritual values.

October 14, 2020 19:44

Your efforts have not only advanced the process towards lasting peace in your communities, but have inspired many people around the world with your example of true dialogue based on spiritual values

October 14, 2020 19:43

I am grateful to the Goi Foundation for understanding, supporting and appreciating our mission. I was touched by the words of the President of Goi Peace Foundation, Mr. Hiroo Saionji in his letter

October 14, 2020 19:43

using the local word Padayon! that means Move on. That was a turning point for many of us to continue our mission without fear and with determination, living and promoting the culture of dialogue in our society

. And in a special way, it is an award for those members and friends whom we consider martyrs because they have given their lives pursuing the vision and mission of the Silsilah Dialogue Movement. Among them I would d like to mention Fr. Salvatore Carzedda, PIME, my close friend,

October 14, 2020 19:40

When I received the information that the Silsilah Dialogue Movement had been chosen for the Goi Peace Award 2013 I informed the organizers that this is an award given to the many members and friends of Silsilah who live the spirit of the Movement.

October 14, 2020 19:39

Thank you too to all who are here in this special occasion. Your presence is a sign of solidarity not only for Silsilah, but also for those who work, suffer and die to promote dialogue and peace in the Philippines and in the world today. Thank you so much

October 14, 2020 19:38

Peace be with you all

It is my joy and privilege to receive the Goi Peace Award 2013 on behalf of the Silsilah Dialogue Movement

I am deeply touched by your presence in this special event. I feel honoured and humbled to know that some of you represent the high authorities of the Japanese government and many important national and international institutions. Thank you very much for your presence

October 14, 2020 19:37

Among the thousands of alumni who have participated in these programs, many of them are active in governments and civil society organizations, promoting the Silsilah spirit in all spheres.

October 14, 2020 19:36

Silsilah proposes a life in-dialogue based on love and trust, encouraging all people to undergo a process of personal transformation that leads to social transformation. It offers various educational courses and exposure programs for all sectors of society, focusing not only on interfaith dialogue, but also on sustainable agriculture, environmental advocacy, holistic healthcare and a wide range of community service

October 14, 2020 19:34

In recognition of its many years of commitment to promote dialogue for peace and solidarity among Muslims and Christians in the Philippines.

The dedicated efforts of the members of the Silsilah Dialogue Movement have not only advanced the process towards lasting peace in their communities, but have inspired many people around the world with an example of true dialogue based on spirituality.

The wonderful thing is that as we decrease the scale of economic activity, we actually increase our own emotional well-being. That is because at the deepest level localization is about connection. It is about re establishing our sense of interdependence with others and with the natural world. And this connection is a fundamental human need.

October 14, 2020 19:32

Now is the time to link hands to bridge the divide between the movements for ecological and social change. Localization provides the opportunity to unite around a common agenda, because the steps we need to take to heal the planet are the very same as those that are needed to heal ourselves, improve our physical health, to increase employment, and shrink the gap between rich and poor.

October 14, 2020 19:32

For the localization movement to really take hold, we need to forge alliances between concerned citizens. Environmentalists have long warned of the dangers of pollution, the extinction crisis, and impending climate disaster. Social justice activists, meanwhile, have focused on inequality and the roots of conflict

It is unlikely that any one country would take such an initiative on its own. However, it would be perfectly possible for a group of nations to break away from the World Trade Organisation and to draw up alternative trade treaties, this time with an emphasis on the needs of their citizens and the environment.

October 14, 2020 19:29

and insist that TNCs be subject to the rules of nation states. Only then can we put an end to the hugely damaging practices of today, which see corporations and banks roaming the planet in search of the most favourable working conditions and the weakest environmental and social regulations, effectively holding nation states ransom along the way.

October 14, 2020 19:28

Our task now is to build on this groundswell of popular support and goodwill to create a powerful movement for change. To be effective, we need to work in two distinct areas. At the policy level, we should be putting pressure on governments to favour rather than undermine smaller, more localised businesses,

October 14, 2020 19:27

that big business is more efficient; that long distance trade creates jobs; that industrial scale agriculture is necessary to feed the world. And they are coming to realise that more localized economies may well be the answer to some of the most intractable problems we face in the world today mass unemployment and climate change among them.

And at last even the mainstream media seems to be waking up and taking notice. The August, 2012 issue of Time Magazine carried a lengthy article on what it called localnomics, while a recent piece in the New York Times quoted a former Microsoft manager saying, the future is local.

In the last few years, the local food movement has taken off around the world. In the United States, for example, the number of farmers market rose by seventeen per cent just last year. In Detroit, one of Americas most blighted cities, there are now more than two thousand community gardens.

October 13, 2020 20:57

A farmer I know in Australia has a before and after story that shows how much local marketing can affect an individuals well being. A farmer all his life, he used to sell exclusively to supermarkets; just two crops: bananas and avocados. He barely made a living, and was completely controlled by his buyers.

October 13, 2020 20:54

The list of benefits gained by localizing the food economy is a long one, and I will just skim through them. Greater agricultural and biological diversity; a reduction in the need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides and preservatives; decreased packaging and processing;

October 13, 2020 20:53

Nowhere is the argument for localization more compelling than in food and farming. Some of us may buy a new pair of shoes every few months, a new car once in five years.

Businesses of this sort were, in fact, the bedrock of their communities, serving to hold the local economy together for generation after generation. It Is only when the economy is in the hands of distant investors and loses its connection to people and place that growth becomes an imperative.

Mainstream economists will argue, of course, that localization can never work in the long run because businesses need to grow in order to survive. But we know from our own life experience that this is not true. Until quite recently, businesses of all kinds from shoe shops to accountancy firms

Anger over bank bailouts has led millions of people to pull their money out of big banks in favour of smaller, local institutions.

The foundations of local economies are small and medium-sized businesses, which provide goods and services at a relatively local level and offer meaningful employment to local people. The economic benefits of supporting local enterprises are clear.

October 13, 2020 20:31

We need instead to be supporting economic activity on a smaller scale. That does not mean reducing everything to the level of the village or small town; whether or not that would be desirable, it is simply not a practicable proposition. Certain manufacturing processes, for instance, clearly benefit from economies of scale.

It is also what I call a drone economy. In a manner eerily reminiscent of the control of Reapers, Predators and Zephyrs in the airspaces over Pakistan and Afghanistan, executives in New York boardrooms can, in an instant, profoundly affect the lives of peasant farmers in the Rajasthani desert or bankrupt a small printworks in Tennessee.

October 13, 2020 20:28

Is it using natural resources in a way that can be sustained? Is it helping to make people happier? Conventional economics will at best pay lip service to such considerations. Within the economics of localization, they are centre stage.

October 13, 2020 20:28

So instead of end goals or bottom lines we need to be thinking more in terms of basic principles. Is the economy bringing the community together? Is it providing meaningful and fulfilling work? Is it looking after the needs of everyone, not just an exclusive few?

October 13, 2020 20:27

It is important to see localization not as an absolute, but rather as a process or path. Where that path may finally lead is something that needs to be determined by different communities and cultures worldwide. Each town, each region, each nation will find its own direction mirroring, if you like, the cultural kaleidoscope of previous times, which was itself a reflection of different environments, different ecological conditions.

October 13, 2020 20:26

These flesh-and-blood role models serve as critical foundations for later life so different from the artificial, media-hyped celebrity role models of the global consumer culture.

October 13, 2020 20:25

Local, community-based economies are particularly crucial for the well-being of our children, providing them with a healthy and deeply-rooted sense of identity. Recent research into childhood development demonstrates the importance, in the early years of life, of learning about who we are in relation to parents, siblings, and the larger community

October 13, 2020 20:24

Economic localization is a solution multiplier. And that is because, in stark contrast with the global economy, it is in tune with fundamental human and ecological needs. It is built on face to face relationships, on community, and on an understanding that Nature has limits that need to be respected.

October 13, 2020 20:23

And third, there are real and viable alternatives ways of structuring the economy, in particular, that offer the prospect of more equitable human relationships, a cleaner and healthier environment, and a deeper sense of personal well being.

October 13, 2020 20:22

So where does that all leave us? While the situation is undeniably precarious, there are three very good reasons why we can still look to the future with a sense of optimism. First, the mess we are in today is not the result of innate greed or some other human failing; it is the consequence of political decisions.

October 13, 2020 20:22

And they are being told that if they want the respect of their peers, they must have the latest running shoes, the latest mobile phone, the latest gadget. But where does that path lead? All too often it leads to a sense of separation and envy, the very opposite of the connection the love that at a deep level they are really looking for.

October 13, 2020 20:20

And all the time we are bombarded with the cleverly constructed messages of consumerism. Young people are particularly vulnerable. Like all of us, they are looking for acceptance; they want to belon

I would not dwell on the damage that globalization is causing; switch on the television news or open a newspaper any day of the year, and it is there right in front of you. But I do want to say a few more words about one vital issue that gets relatively little media attention; namely, its effect on our psyches, on our sense of who we are.

October 13, 2020 20:16

Yet it is important, I think, to recognise that it is not a question of good guys and bad guys, good corporations and bad corporations. Inside giant transnational corporations, you can find highly ethical, concerned individuals, trying to do the right thing, just as within smaller businesses you can find people who are narrow minded and greedy

October 13, 2020 20:15

What is more, they are able to influence the entire education system, increasingly gearing it to fit their needs. Scientific research, the media in fact, virtually all our access to information is now largely controlled by corporate interests.

October 13, 2020 20:14

The only winners in this economy are the big corporations. Collectively, they effectively make the rules, putting enormous pressure on governments to sign on to trade treaties that give them ever more freedom and power

October 13, 2020 20:13

More absurdly still, nations routinely import and export almost identical quantities of identical products. Just two examples: According to recent figures, the United States imports about 365,000 tons of potatoes, and exports 325,000 tons, while the UK imports 114,000 tons of milk and exports 119,000 tons. These are not special cases or statistical freaks: they are the norm. At a time of impending climate chaos brought about by the burning of fossil fuels, they represent an economy on the edge of madness.

October 13, 2020 20:13

In the supermarkets of Australia, Californian oranges are cheaper than Australian oranges. In the modern stores of Ladakh, butter that has to be trucked in over the Himalayas is cheaper than butter from the farm a mile away. In England, roofing slate from China costs less than Welsh slate.

October 13, 2020 20:12

while export grants and other direct supports make it easier and more profitable for businesses to engage in long distance trade. The end result is that goods from the other side of the world often sell for substantially less than the same goods produced locally.

October 13, 2020 20:12

About fifteen years ago, we produced a report entitled, Small is Beautiful, Big is Subsidized. The title really says it all. Vast amounts of taxpayers money are spent on providing the infrastructure required for the global economy the roads, the airports, the telecommunications

October 13, 2020 20:11

While these practices enrich the businesses that operate on a global level, they are largely irrelevant to the needs of the local grocery store. What is more, they lead directly and inevitably to increases in both pollution and unemployment.

October 13, 2020 20:10

Taxes and subsidies tilt the playing field still further. Across the world, prohibitive taxes on labour and heavy subsidies for energy and technology have the effect of encouraging both an increasing use of high technology and an outsourcing of employment to parts of the world where labour is still relatively cheap.

and the long-distance transport of poultry entails the risk of spoilage. When you reduce the scale of such an operation right down to the level of the family farm, these risks all but disappear. And yet a small farmer with a few dozen free-range chickens is likely to be subject to essentially the same regulations, often raising costs to levels that can make it impossible to remain in business.

October 13, 2020 20:07

Meanwhile, regulations operating at a national level tend to undermine their smaller competitors. Take the example of chicken farms. Huge, battery-style farms clearly need stringent environmental and health regulations. Tens of thousands of closely confined animals are highly prone to disease; the tons of concentrated effluent need to be safely disposed of;

October 13, 2020 20:07

Firstly, regulations. In the name of growth, global trade and finance is increasingly deregulated, while the local market is subject to often stifling amounts of red tape. Deregulation has led to an exponential expansion in the power and influence of transnational corporations, or TNCs. In the name of free trade, constraints on TNCs and banks have been removed, creating an interlinked global empire that has turned our elected representatives into little more than corporate servants.

October 13, 2020 20:06

The global economy is dependent for its existence on three key mechanisms, which together provide a hugely unfair advantage to big business. These are: regulations, taxes and subsidies.

October 13, 2020 20:06

These and other signs of breakdown are not a regrettable by-product of some otherwise valid process, but the direct result of an economy that is out of touch with the real needs of people and the Earth. More and more people now realise that merely tinkering with the dominant economy is not enough; we need fundamental change

October 13, 2020 20:05

This is not just a matter of accounting. The pursuit of economic growth above all other considerations has taken the planet to the brink. Climate change poses a threat to humanity on an unprecedented scale. Worldwide, rates of depression, suicide and addiction are on the increase. Once affluent nation states face massive debt; some are literally bankrupt

October 13, 2020 20:05

Observing these changes in Ladakh forced me to question basic economic principles. Like most Westerners, I had grown up under the impression that economic growth meant progress, and that the various costs of growth were unfortunate but necessary.

October 13, 2020 20:03

The streets are now choked with traffic, and the air tastes of diesel fumes. The once pristine streams are polluted, the water undrinkable. For the first time, some people are even homeless. Unemployment an unimaginable concept in the traditional culture is now widespread, while friction between different ethnic and religious groups, virtually unknown in the past five hundred years, is on the rise

October 13, 2020 20:01

Political power has been centralized in Leh, the capital, and a dependence created on an outside money economy. Tragically, the Ladakhis have been made to think of themselves and their culture as backward and inferior, and have been encouraged to embrace a Western, urban lifestyle. Over the course of twenty years, I have watched Leh turn into an urban sprawl.

October 13, 2020 20:01

Over the last three decades or so, Ladakh has been increasingly opened up to economic development, exposing the people to a range of outside influences they had not encountered before: advertising and corporate media, tourism, pesticides, western-style schooling, and consumer goods.

October 13, 2020 20:00

As in other traditional cultures, the Ladakhis also had a deep connection to the land. People depended on the living world around them for their basic needs; with few exceptions, their food, clothing and shelter were all produced within the region. Most necessities were met within walking distance. You knew the land intimately, you knew its limits; and you knew how to live with the land in a sustainable way.

October 13, 2020 19:59

And these economic exchanges provided a structural relationship of give-and-take that bound people together in ways that provided both material and psychological security.

October 13, 2020 19:59

Importantly, this interdependence was structurally reinforced by the economy. People relied on each other for the very food they ate; they exchanged seeds, they shared draft animals for ploughing and threshing

October 13, 2020 19:58

It was a peaceful culture; there was little strife and conflict. The very young had multiple carers siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles while the very old were integrally involved in the rhythms of daily life.

October 13, 2020 19:58

Perhaps the most striking aspect of the traditional culture was the Ladakhis sense of self. In my early years, the overwhelming majority of people still lived in large, extended families, within communities that were of a human scale. An intricate web of mutual support had the effect of minimising the strain on individual relationships.

October 13, 2020 19:57

For more than a thousand years, Ladakh was home to a thriving culture. Traditions of frugality and cooperation, coupled with an intimate and location-specific knowledge of the environment, enabled the Ladakhis not only to survive but to prosper. Everyone had enough to eat; families and communities were strong; the status of women was high.

October 13, 2020 19:56

I have spent much of the last 35 years in Ladakh, and it has become my second home. From the first year I have been fluent in the local language, and have been able to experience the culture almost from the inside. These experiences have had a profound effect on the way I now see the world.

October 13, 2020 19:55

I might not have seen the crucial links between the economy, community and the environment had I not had the privilege of living in relatively intact local economies in both Europe and Asia. My greatest teacher in this regard has been Ladakh, or Little Tibet, a remote region high up in the Western Himalayas

October 13, 2020 19:55

The benefits of such a move are enormous. It can radically cut energy use and waste; it can help to restore true democracy; it can reduce the gap between rich and poor; and at a personal, spiritual level, it can restore to our lives a sense of meaning and purpose. I call it the economics of happiness

October 13, 2020 19:53

It does not mean an end to international trade, but it does mean taking control of giant multinational corporations and requiring them to be place based and accountable to individual nation states

October 13, 2020 19:53

What does this mean in practice? Simply put, localization means shortening the distance between production and consumption moving away from an ever growing dependence on global trade, and instead encouraging greater self reliance both at the local and regional level.

October 13, 2020 19:51

Considers science as a legitimate but incomplete methodology for exploring the truth as it ignores the observer and self observation as legitimate ways to explore the truth.

Says that since the deepest level of Nature is pure unconditioned consciousness there is plenty of room for both free will and creativity. In the goal of life is complete freedom. Similarly the laws of Nature are actually the habits of Nature and therefore, Nature can also take breaks of creativity

Creates technologies that can make life more comfortable and enjoyable. Used diabolically science creates technology of destruction and mechanized death.

Divides Nature into living organisms and dead matter

Prescribes subjective techniques for experiencing transcendence, interconnectedness, inseparability, unity, compassion, love, beauty, truth, harmony, and the experience of growth and evolution. These include various kinds of meditative practices, but also acts of love and service and a deep intuitive knowing through self reflection, contemplation, and thought experiments. These are testable and subject to verification and consensual agreement.

October 13, 2020 18:54

Asserts that consciousness is the ground of creation that simultaneously co-arises as matter, biology, and mind

Experiences the world subjectively within oneself

Asserts that observer and observed are in reality one unified entity.

It is interesting to me that we have the capacity to make this new understanding spread virally almost with the rapidity of an epidemic or a global pandemic. I use global pandemic in a healthy sense a global pandemic of health, joy, peace, and sustainability.

We must now develop a deeper understanding of holism. The word holism, the word health, the word holy, and the word healing, are all actually the same word, because healing is nothing other than the memory of wholeness the memory of who we really are.

October 13, 2020 18:50

With that as the background, our organization, the Chopra Foundation, has as its goal almost the same as the Goi Peace Foundation, to help create a critical mass of consciousness which will accelerate the development of a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Peaceful, just, sustainable they are all linke

October 13, 2020 18:45

If technology is part of our evolution and it is not going to be stopped, how can we use this new technology to bring about a deeper healing, a deeper healing of our ecosystem, a deeper healing of the drift and separation of our collective souls, and a deeper understanding of the relationship between science and spirituality?

A deeper understanding of consciousness has the ability to literally give us answers to some of the deepest questions of our existence. Why is there something instead of nothing? Why do we exist at all? What is the meaning and purpose of our existence? Do we have a soul? What is the meaning of death? Why do we have a diabolical shadow self? Is there divinity or god? And if there is, then why is it important? Does that divine intelligence even care about us? Is our planet a single spec of dust in a mindless void somewhere in the junkyard of infinity?

When we have ancient primitive habits and modern capacities, that is a very devastating combination that could spell our doom. Therefore, we need to revise our science. We need a holistic science that not only asks the how of creation and the how of evolution, but asks the why of creation and the why of evolution.

Your overall happiness experience depends on whether you have moved from money to meaning, up the hierarchy of needs that Abraham Maslow, the great transpersonal psychologist, spoke about. And your happiness depends on various choices that you make on a day-to-day basis.

With that, I would like to show you another mind map, which takes us a little bit beyond social well-being, physical well-being, financial well-being, and ecological well-being, into a deeper realm which we can only call spiritual well-being

October 13, 2020 18:08

So when I saw the Goi Peace Foundations map showing the network of Sustainability, Systems, Science, and Spirituality, with consciousness as the foundation, I thought it is a very deep insight into the nature of consciousness, which is a singular that has no plural; universal that has no single expression.

October 13, 2020 18:07

In fact, you can do radioactive isotope studies and prove without a shadow of doubt that right at this moment, you have in your physical body at least a million atoms that were once in the body of Buddha or Jesus Christ or Genghis Khan. Our only real physical body is the total universe, and our only real single identity, the I within me, is a universal I. And that has been the great quest of all great spiritual traditions.

October 13, 2020 18:06

Otherwise, we would not be able to surf the information highway on the Internet. We are members of the same atmosphere. We breathe the same molecules from the atmosphere. We are members of a single body. It is the same molecules that are recycling through you and me.

October 13, 2020 18:05

Our bodies and our minds and our consciousness are all part of the recycling of the universe. We are members of a single energy field, and members of a single information field.

October 13, 2020 18:05

to think that I have a mind of my own is really an illusion. We are part of a collective consciousness, and that collective consciousness is part of a universal consciousness. And just like everything in the universe, consciousness not only recycles, but also evolves and takes leaps of creativity.

October 13, 2020 18:04

So this is a very interesting mind map that shows the inter-connectedness between different aspects of our well-being. Its no longer your physical well-being by itself. Your physical well-being is dependent on a deeper understanding of consciousness as a field.

Financially healthy people are usually people who know how to manage their finances. They do not usually buy things that they do not need with money that they have not earned, just to impress people they do not like. They also make sure that they do not get into debts, and pay their taxes in time, and are socially responsible.

October 13, 2020 17:54

How engaged are you in your community? How many hours do you willingly volunteer? Do you have a cause bigger than yourself? All these seem to have a direct impact on our well-being, and financial well-being also plays a huge role.

October 13, 2020 17:54

his part of the mind map shows physical well-being, which is dependent on good quality of sleep, a healthy diet, exercise, breathing, Yoga things that we all know about. However, physical well-being is actually drastically dependent on other things like career well-being, social well-being, and community well-being.

October 13, 2020 17:50

These social networks include networks through Twitter or Facebook, and social networks where people email and text each other. In fact, the healthiest people are those who do not disengage from other people, whether it is through social networks or in actual face-to-face meetings.

October 13, 2020 17:49

In other words, consciousness and our emotions are contagious; they spread. And this is very significant. For example, we now know that women with breast cancer who support each other, their survival rate doubles. Happiness networks improve economics and well-being in many ways

October 13, 2020 17:48

If your best friend, for example, is obese, your likelihood of being obese goes up by 57 percent. On the other hand, if your best friend happens to be active and has a good diet, your likelihood of being active, healthy and in good state goes up 7 time

October 13, 2020 17:48

Next, when we look at social well being, the data shows that if you have a happy friend, then your likelihood of being happy goes up 15 times. If your happy friend has a happy friend, whom you do not know, it goes up another 10 times. And if your happy friend has a happy friend who has a happy friend, whom you do not know, it goes up another 7 percent.

October 13, 2020 17:46

So there is direct link between our engagement, our passion, our physical health, and the economy. Whether it is passive disengagement, which means just counting time, or active disengagement, it has huge implications.

October 13, 2020 17:44

So there is direct link between our engagement, our passion, our physical health, and the economy. Whether it is passive disengagement, which means just counting time, or active disengagement, it has huge implications.

October 13, 2020 17:43

But if the person you work with notices your strength and acknowledges what you are good at, then your rate of disengagement falls to less than 1 percent and your health also improves.

October 13, 2020 17:43

Another data shows that if your immediate supervisor or someone who you work with ignores you, then your rate of disengagement goes up to about 40 percent, and sooner or later you are also going to be falling sick. On the other hand, if somebody you work with does not ignore you but criticizes you,

October 13, 2020 17:41

If you look at what is called career well-being, the data shows that only 20 percent of people in the world can say that they are happy with what they do every day. In fact, one of the most astonishing statistics, at least in the Western world and in the United States, is that more people die on Monday morning at 9:00, because they hate their jobs.

October 13, 2020 17:40

At Gallup, in the last few years, there has been an examination of what we might call total well-being across the globe, looking at over 150 countries. This data has been constantly reviewed and revised, based on information that we get on an ongoing basis, and the methodologies are a result of the thinking of 2,000 senior scientists at the Gallup Organization. It shows different aspects of global well-being, depending on the state of consciousness that we tap into.

October 13, 2020 17:39

This mind map that you see on the screen is actually derived from data that was gathered at the Gallup Organization, where I happen to have the privilege of being a senior scientist.

October 13, 2020 17:39

With that as a background, I would like to address the topic that we have today, which is Global Well Being. Global peace is of course dependent on global well-being.

October 13, 2020 17:38

Consciousness, the ground of being, is differentiating here into everything that we experience as reality. Our thinking, our behavior, our speech, our perceptions, our creativity, our imagination, our personal relationships, our social interactions, our environment all these are interdependently co-arising from this deeper domain of existence.

October 13, 2020 17:37

and that gives rise to feelings of love, compassion, peace, joy, and equanimity. At this level, there is also mathematical truth which describes the laws of nature. So, understanding consciousness and its contents is the same as understanding the whole universe.

October 13, 2020 17:37

Also at this level are the fundamental building blocks of what we call mind Platonic values, such as truth, goodness, beauty, and harmony. At this level, we experience our interconnection with each other, or rather our inseparability with each other,

October 13, 2020 17:36

if you go to the deepest levels of nature called the Planck scale spacetime geometry which you might say is the basement of the universe from where the whole universe arises then, at this level, everything coexists as possibility, and that includes the fundamental building blocks of the physical universe, like spin and charge and gravity and the curvature of spacetime.

October 13, 2020 17:35

I speak regularly to scientists who are in cutting-edge physics, mathematics and also biology. Amongst them is a friend of mine called Dr. Stuart Hammeroff, who heads the Center for Studies on Consciousness at the University of Arizona in the United States. He is also a colleague of Sir Roger Penrose, and according to Hammeroff and Penrose,

October 13, 2020 17:34

Consciousness is the ground of being that differentiates into everything that we call reality spacetime, energy, information, the world of objects, and our very own biology and our environment.

October 13, 2020 17:33

Today I think we are entering a new era in science, where we are beginning to recognize that consciousness is not just a byproduct of our brain. Although it does localize in our brain, consciousness is actually the ultimate ground of all creation.

October 13, 2020 17:32

In Vedanta, the great wisdom tradition of India from thousands of years ago, it says Consciousness cannot be imagined but it makes imagination possible. Consciousness cannot be cognized but it makes cognition possible. Consciousness cannot be perceived but it makes perception possible.

October 13, 2020 17:31

In the few minutes that I have, I am going to talk about the power of consciousness to create peace.

To start, it is very important to get some clarity on what we mean by consciousness. It is a word that we use all the time and very frequently there is quite a difference of opinion on the meaning of the word.

October 13, 2020 17:30

Deepak Chopra, M.D.

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Saionji, Mr. Sato, distinguished Ambassadors, and all the guests, as well as my family and my very special friends who have accompanied me from the United States and Europe. Thank you all for being here. It is also very important for me that my little grandchildren are here today.

Am I lovable? Do I deserve things? Am I capable? These assessments are directly recorded into the subconscious mind as the childs self-identity.

Here comes the big problem. Neuroscience reveals that we only operate our life 5 percent of the time with our conscious creative mind, while we operate our life 95 percent of the time with the habits in our subconscious mind.

October 13, 2020 17:23

For the first six years of its life, a child is unconsciously downloading other peoples behaviors and programming them as their own. Also during this hypnotic period, a child acquires beliefs about themselves that they hear from their parents. Who am I?

October 13, 2020 17:22

How do we acquire the programs in the subconscious mind? Some data is provided by genetics and those programs are called instincts. The rest comes from observing and recording lifes experiences. To facilitate the downloading of behaviors and appropriate responses to the world,

October 13, 2020 17:20

The subconscious mind is essentially a record playback mechanism. It represents a database where programmed behaviors such as instincts and acquired habits are stored. Push the button and the subconscious will automatically play a formerly learned response.

October 13, 2020 17:19

desires and aspirations that says I want to be healthy,I want to be successful, I want to have live in my life. It is also the part of the mind that manifests positive thinking. The conscious mind can focus on our past, present and future experiences.

October 13, 2020 17:18

There are two parts to the mind that controls our lives: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. They have very different characteristics. The conscious mind is related to the prefrontal cortex, and it is the home of our personal identity, our source or spirit. It is the creative mind and the source of our wishes,

October 13, 2020 17:17

This too now has a scientific basis. You can control the fate of your cells with your beliefs and your perceptions. You are very powerful people, and you only have to understand the nature of the mind.

In Japan there is a long history of kotodama. Kotodama is the spiritual character of the words, and it turns out this is a scientific reality. Japanese people also say that illness is caused by the mind.
