~ Idea 500 ~ 22 November 1995

The United Nations has done a tremendous job in paving the way to our entry into a new century and millennium. It has done it with its vast statistical global services covering practically every aspect of humanity and of the Earth, with its several world conferences on fundamental global issues, its stock-takings in yearly reports on the state of the world in many sectors, its stock-takings during the 50th anniversaries of the UN and of several of its agencies, and the holding of world celebrations on global issues, values and achievements. (see Introduction to the Third One Hundred Ideas.)

In addition, the UN has received the invaluable help and pioneering work of a number of Independent World Commissions of Eminent Personalities, on important world issues requiring attention. Here is the list of these commissions:

The World Commission on North-South Relations headed by former Chancellor Willy Brandt of Germany,

The World Commission on Disarmament headed by Mr. Olof Palme, former Prime Minister of Sweden.

The World Commission on the Environment headed by Mrs. Gro Harlan Brundtland, Prime Minister of Norway.

The World Commission on Global Governance, headed by Mr. Ingvàr Carlsson, former Prime Minister of Sweden.

The World Commission on Funding of the United Nations, headed by Ms. Hazel Henderson, US economist,

The World Commission on Population and the Quality of Life, headed by Mrs. Maria de Lourdes Pintalsigo, former Prime Minister of Portugal,

The World Commission on Art and Culture, headed by former UN Secretary General Javier Pérez de Cuellar,.

The World Commission on Education in the 21st century, headed by Jacques Delors, former President of the European Economic Community,

The World Commission on the Oceans, headed by Mario Soares, the Prime Minister of Portugal*.

I recommend that in 1999 or 2000, the UN General Assembly should hold a special session or convene a World Conference on our entry into a new century and millennium, to review the conclusions and recommendations of all the above preparatory work, unprecedented in human history and design a core vision of what our Earth and humanity should aim at and look like in the future.

*For further subjects on which I recommend the establishment of new world commissions, see Index "World Commissions New Proposals". Former heads of states, former heads of UN agencies and philanthropists may wish to create such commissions.

Robert's Golden Sayings
Church bells, gongs, tom-toms, chofars, muezzins, mountain horns and songs are all cosmic vibrations which make us feel one with the universe. So do great music, great speeches, great literature and great art. UNESCO is the great United Nations’ Agency devoted to that.

My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 9

The two biggest questions henceforth on this planet are:

How do we visualize our future? How will we govern and manage our planetary home?

And almost no one on Earth devotes any attention to them. The United Nations has prepared a lot of ground on the first question, but very little on the second which seems to be taboo.

In the past, cultures and political identities were used to seed hatred and wage war. The UN has turned around this course and proclaimed: use your culture and identity for peace, use your power to serve, contribute your diversity to a richer world.
