Today, we all live in the age of globalization, democracy, and information. However, the depressing fact is that, despite the advances in technology and mass communication of the second half of the 20th century, despite mass travel, the intermingling of races, the ever-growing reduction - or so we believe - of the mysteries of our world, misunderstandings, prejudices, and stereotypes among members of different faiths and cultures still endure.
This reveals both challenges and also opportunities for us. We can turn these challenges into new opportunities and hopes for humanity if we can deal with the new phenomenon of diversity and multiculturalism with a creative mind.
Therefore, I do hope that Towards a Global Ethic (An Initial Declaration) will a wake-up call for many and a foundational text for the work ahead of us.

Indeed, what is needed in an age of ecological destruction is a moral vision that can inspire moral will, moral imagination, moral courage and moral leadership. Such a vision needs to be translated in appropriate values, middle axioms, virtues, duties and rights. A global ethic guides the whole of humanity in the right direction.
