About this Item

155, [1] pages. Large format 9.75 inches by 12 inches. Illustrated. Participants. Cover has minor wear, creasing, and soiling. James Amon "Jim" Garrison is an American author, theologian and founder of the State of the World Forum. The first State of the World Forum gathering took place in San Francisco, September 27-October 1, 1995. Convened by Mikhail Gorbachev, more than 400 innovative leaders and thinkers from 50 countries came together. The central question Mr. Gorbachev challenged this gathering to take up was what principles, priorities and values should guide humanity as it moves beyond the strictures of the Cold War into the next phase of development. This was debated and discussed from the vantage points of science, economics, global security, religion and the arts. The mission of the State of the World Forum is to establish a global network of leaders and change agents who come together for both discussion and action. It does this in the conviction that it is networks of committed individuals and institutions which are emerging as principal sources of innovation and effectiveness, thereby reframing and invigorating civil society. The State of the World Forum network is comprised of leaders and activists in business, science, academia, politics, religion and the arts. The Forum also gives priority to gender parity and the full inclusion of youth. Combining all these constituencies as equals to address common issues and challenges, the Forum also gives priority to bringing those from the grassroots together with those widely known and acclaimed, as well as with the gatekeepers of capital and power. The State of the World Forum's uniqueness has been in the breadth and scope of its interests; the diversity of individuals it has brought to its various gatherings and initiatives; and its willingness to place the issue of spirituality on a par with economic, scientific, cultural and political discussions. The Forum engages and challenges its network to address critical issues. Bookseller Inventory # 72472
