State of the World Forum presentation on A Compassionate Society?

Dear GENI Friend,

Two months ago, you received a presentation on the ideas of Buckminster Fuller. Many responded with thanks on how valuable these comments were in reconnecting them with their vision of making the world a better place for everyone. I was especially honored that Allegra Fuller Snyder, Bucky's daughter, will include this piece on the Buckminster Fuller Institute Web site: www.bfi.org

Another World Forum leader has just offered his endorsement of the GENI Initiative. Dr. Ruud Lubbers was Prime Minister of the Netherlands from 1982-1994, and a true statesman in Western Europe. Presently an adjunct professor at Harvard/JFK School, Dr. Lubbers stated:

The GENI Initiative fits right into the more and more interdependent world. Globalization is about a more and more borderless world and the need to respond globally to the needs of mankind. To preserve our common base, the Earth, we need to join forces to generate electricity as environmentally as possible. This is crucial and therefore GENI deserves support.

Today, I offer you one of the most powerful presentations from the last State of the World Forum -- by Mahbub Ul Haq. Dr. Ul Haq was instrumental in creating the Human Development Report, published annually by the United Nations Development program. He is one of the most humane and sincere men I have met. On this subject, he questions just how compassionate our society truly is. The disparity between developed and developing worlds is extreme.

Please share the attached presentation by Mahbub Ul Haq. His statements offer the reality of today's world -- and together with the Buckminster Fuller Memorial Lecture -- the possibility of what it could be. Please copy these to people that you know. Help inform them.

Thank you again for your support. It allows us to accelerate this initiative globally.

In partnership for the planet,

Peter Meisen
