#Cyberpeacefare #Laboratories # Louis Pasteur

#Cyberpeacefare #Great Task of Peace #Sir Frederick Eggleston

"The great task of the peace is to work morals into it.  The only sort of peace that will be real is one in which everybody takes his share of responsibility.  World organizations and conferences will be of no value unless there is improvement in relation of men to men."  

(Time for "everybody takes his/her  share of responsibility"   Wonder how ?  Anybody got any ideas ?)

#Cyberpeacefare Fleeting Moments/Opportunities/DataInundation

It seems to me, a cyberpeacecitizen, that many important fleeting messages/expositions on "world peace and planet survival" are lost or "deadended" in social media because of fleeting opportunity of conscientious instant action or just "indifference" of fellow citizens of the world to re-tweet/comment ?

"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?

C2G Update: Nature-based Solutions, the UN, & the IPCC Reports, with Janos Pasztor

Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), gives an update on his team's work after a busy week in New York. In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions?
