As one of the first sign­ers of The Jena Dec­la­ra­tion, I believe 21st Cen­tu­ry progress relies upon region­al and inter­na­tion­al col­lab­o­ra­tion. We must work togeth­er across age groups and ide­olo­gies, income and gen­der dif­fer­ences, polit­i­cal and social con­di­tions, and our dif­fi­cult his­to­ries. This is not easy to do, but it is both essen­tial and the core of mod­ern education.

Luiz Oosterbeek, President of the International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences

We believe sev­er­al part­ner­ship ini­tia­tives may be con­sid­ered, name­ly in the frame­work of imple­ment­ing the prin­ci­ples and vision of The Jena Dec­la­ra­tion and the BRIDGES coali­tion pro­gramme of UNESCO, both of which CIPSH is a found­ing partner.

Garry Jacobs, President of the World Academy of Art and Science

It will take a broad-based glob­al social move­ment to change think­ing and action for the tran­si­tion towards sus­tain­able pros­per­i­ty. This requires fine tun­ing to local needs and conditions.
