Our Vision

We are living in times when nothing short of global cooperation can successfully address the dire problems developing in the world today. Education provides the most promising path toward building “a global culture of cooperation,” a culture that advances the principles of mutual respect, equality in dignity, unity and diversity, and environmental stewardship, the progenitors of lasting peace.

We have come to believe that a “World University” — a human-to-human network of networks — is a powerful and highly practical approach to realizing an inclusive and creative model of learning. We invite educators, scholars, practitioners, activists, learners, and people from all walks of life, from all corners of the earth, to share responsibility for leading the world toward greater cooperation by joining us in founding the first World Dignity University.

With your participation, the World Dignity University will become a global role model of excellence in scholarship. dignifying dialogue, and intellectual cooperation that ensures the survival of humankind and the planet.

Please note:

World Dignity University is still in its preparatory phase. Not all information you may be interested in is posted on the website at this time. Material from the preparatory phase is accessible at HumanDHS's website.

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights.
