9 Systemic Resolutions of Important Issues

In order to facilitate a solid and meaningful discussion of the mutual relations between the global issues of Sustainable Development, Culture of Peace and Global Humanity, we need to briefly review them. To begin with, the term Culture of Peace refers to a worldwide cultural foundation for the pursuit of peace in national and international communities. According to Dr Federico Mayor, the-then Director-General of UNESCO (Mayor 1997),

A culture of peace consists of values, attitudes and behaviors that reflect and inspire social interaction and sharing, based on the principles of freedom, justice and democracy, all human rights, tolerance and solidarity, that reject violence, endeavor to prevent conflicts by tackling their root causes to solve problems through dialogue and negotiation and that guarantee the full exercise of all rights and the means to participate fully in the development process of their society.
