Call for Signature of the Petition for the Creation of an Appropriate United Nations Structure for the Inter-Religious and Intercultural Dialogue for Peace and Development

A little more than a year ago, on the impetus of Professor Albert Tévoédjrè, African academic, politician of Benin, President and founder of the Pan-African Center for Prospective Social Studies (CPPS), former Special Representative of the Secretary General of the UN in Côte d 'Ivoire, renowned personalities from diverse backgrounds: culture, social commitment and varied professional experiences agreed to take over with the government of Benin international support for the African Education Initiative peace and development through inter-religious and intercultural dialogue.

These personalities, in view of the tragic impasse of the military responses to the terrors which continue to mourn the planet every day, accept to offer their experience, reputation and lucid generosity with the aim of converging intelligences and consciences for the public welfare . They want each country to stand out and shine a unifying focal point of creative energies to make the African Initiative a new chain of human security beyond survival defense operations. Other figures of the struggle for man will be welcome to constitute the audacious and powerful network of engineers expected of a more credible mechanism of peace-making by joint actions, jointly responding to the immediate needs of the populations.

Through this movement, we wish to associate with this initiative citizens of the world animated by the same desire for "peace by living together" despite our differences.
The goal is to collect the largest number of signatures in Africa and around the world to bring the UN Secretariat to action by creating an appropriate federative structure for inter-religious and intercultural dialogue for the peace to:

Responsibilities of the structure

  • create a framework for dialogue between inter-religious and intercultural dialogue in member countries,
  • to promote meetings between young people from various socio-cultural and denominational backgrounds in order to facilitate and strengthen the mechanisms of "living together",
  • create focal points to network at country level and give priority to joint development actions erected and managed by inter-religious and intercultural groups,
  • to develop joint social innovation projects based on inter-religious and intercultural dialogue, leading to the achievement of a common social minimum of genuine development for all citizens in every country in Africa and the world,
  • multiply training centers and university institutes devoted to inter-religious and intercultural dialogue specially dedicated to joint actions of solidarity development,
  • contribute to giving substance to the proposal for an international day devoted to inter-religious and intercultural dialogue as a vehicle for development.

Call launched in Cotonou, Benin, on Sunday July 3,  2016
