WHEN


Formed in 2014, the centenary of the beginning of the First World War - 


CIVIL-ISATION is not an organisation and has no short-term 'campaign strategy'. 


It is an on-going initiative building a growing consensus amongst individuals.



WHY


In an ever more complex world in turmoil, the simplest shared understandings have become obscured.


History's religious and non-religious have shared the ethic of showing respect, with its ability to unite diverse cultures. This 'universal respect' is of course distinct from a personal judgement that might lead to 'admiration'.



CIVIL-ISATION clarifies this non-prescriptive ethic - to promote a culture of peace between individuals.

Establishing a Common Platform of Understanding:


"The ability to address today‚Äôs global challenges is undermined by the absence of a collective vision for society. 

To remedy this, the Commission urges renewed dialogue on an updated set of shared global values 

around which a unified and enduring pathway for society can be built."
