WSPT Schedule and General Program Notes

The World Summit on Peace and Time is an unprecedented gathering called by civil society-the people of the Earth acting in their own sovereignty-on behalf of the cause of calendar reform. The document "Calendar Reform and the Future of Civilization," should be read and studied by all participants. The history of calendar reform and the issues involved far transcend a mere change in the manner or form by which we account for our daily time reckoning. The Declaration of Calendar Reform has also been prepared in advance. The task which those who have gathered for the Summit have accepted is to create a mandate for Calendar Reform that will be presented to the Secretary General of the United Nations and to the head of the Vatican, Pope John Paul II. This mandate will take the form the "People's Declaration of Calendar Reform and Moral Referendum." The Moral referendum will consist of the reform measures established by each of the Seven Commissions of the World Summit on Peace and Time.

The main activity of the Summit will be the work of the Seven Commissions. It is assumed that the calendar change in and of itself will be the pretext for declaring a universal cease-fire, a breathing space for peace. It is also assumed that peace is a dynamic activity that is far more than the absence of war. A positive working definition is that peace is the natural culture of the biosphere. The justifying cause of the calendar reform is the displacement of the human species from the natural timing cycles of the biosphere. By rejecting the timing standard that had enforced the deviation from the biospheric norm, and, by adopting a calendar in accord with the natural timing cycles, the first step at establishing a genuine culture of peace may be taken.

Each of the Commissions will assume that the Calendar Change is to occur and therefore, each Commission will have a simple problem solving task: given the adoption of a new calendar of perpetual and harmonious regularity, and the opportunity to restructure the various human institutions accordingly, what is the very first reform measure to be mandated in accord with the new calendar? Once each of the Commissions has identified what this reform measure might be for its Commission, the next task is to map the consequences of that single reform measure over the duration of one year, divided into four equal quarters of thirteen weeks each. Once the reform measure has been defined and mapped, then it will be the task of the Commission to formulate that measure as a Resolution constituting one of the mandates of the Moral Referendum to be attached to the Declaration of Calendar Reform.

Once the Commissions have completed their assignment, then the findings and recommendations of each of the Commissions will be presented to the General Assembly for final approval. Once all of the Resolutions of the Commissions have been heard and approved by the General Assembly, then they will be put into their final form along with the Declaration of Calendar Reform to constitute the "People's Declaration of Calendar Reform and Moral Referendum." The Closing Session of the Summit will be the formal reading and presentation of this document before the General Assembly of the World Summit on Peace and Time.

These proceedings will be concluded with the ceremonial empowerment of the two "Time of Peace Emissary Teams," the one which will go to the United Nations and the other which will go to the Vatican to deliver the Declaration. These two Teams will have a 20-day time frame to meet their goal. The minimal expectation is that the Secretary-General and the Pope will make a joint announcement regarding the Calendar Reform, no later than July 26, 1999.

In addition to the formal program schedule listed below, there will be ample time in the evenings for topical or in-depth presentations by participants, musical concerts, networking, and a specially prepared exhibit by Summit Coordinator, Dr. Jose Arguelles, entitled "Art of Peace, Science of Time."

While each Commission will consist of a small group of 5-7 invited participants, select members of the World Thirteen Moon Calendar Change Peace Movement will also circulate among the Commissions and be available for technical advice and support. Dr. Ashok Gangadean, Founder-Director of the Global Dialogue Institute will be the on-site coordinator facilitating the Commissions through the process known as "deep dialogue." This is a method for assuring that discussions and group interaction are maintained at a 'global awakening' rather than egoic level of consciousness, thus transforming the group process according to the goals that are called for by the Summit. While the morning sessions of Days 2 and 3 will be for focused Commission work, the afternoon sessions are meant to provide the opportunity for networking and sharing of the work in progress between members of the various commissions. Commissions have the option of maintaining a single chairperson or rotating the chair daily.
