The Club of Budapest is pleased to announce
Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Signing of the Manifesto on the Spirit of Planetary Consciousness
The Club of Budapest Impact Program: Toward 2020
At the Hungarian Academy of Science’s Conference Center in the Castle District of Budapest
on 3 and 4 December 2016
Twenty years ago, at the ceremonial Hall of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a historic event took place with the participation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama: World renowned thought leaders from many parts of the world came together to sign The Manifesto on the Spirit of Planetary Consciousness.
The spirit of planetary consciousness is as relevant today as it ever was, and its introduction into the practical affairs of humanity is more urgent than ever. For this reason today, twenty years after the signing of the Manifesto, we call on our eminent Members and collaborators to reflect on how we can bring the spirit of planetary consciousness to the attention of leading business people, leading politicians, leading writers and artists, as well as well-intentioned people the world over in a way that they realize the importance and the urgency of placing it in the forefront of their own thinking and activities.
Our Consultation is to provide signposts for achieving this objective, and live up to the resolve of the Club of Budapest, proclaimed in our last general meeting in December of 2014, to transform ourselves from a think-tank to a do-tank.

The Heads and Directors and their colleagues of the International Network of The Club of Budapest are hereby cordially invited to attend Pathways to Peace 21-22 September 2016 in Gribskov, Denmark.
In September 2015, 193 heads of states adopted a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. The question is: How can we work together to make it happen?
The Club of Budapest Scandinavia will address this challenge in the ongoing Pathways Project. In collaboration with Transition World and The Hague Center for Global Governance, Innovation and Emergence we will organize a series of 17 dialogue meetings leading to personal, local and global actions.
The kick off will be focusing on SDG16: “Peace, Justice and Inclusive Institutions” on World Peace Day, 21 September 2016.
Local and international participants, including young change makers from different cultures will meet with prominent global change leaders for two intensive days to connect, share, learn and plan. Together we will explore how active conflict transformation skills combine with inner peace practices, and define which specific elements we will work on to co-create significant breakthroughs. We will use innovative social technologies like Meshworking, Wheel of Co-Creation, Theory U and Art of Hosting in the process.
Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, a celebrated figure in the history of humanity’s search for meaning, enjoyed to walk along the coast of North Zealand in Denmark.
In 2013 Ervin Laszlo visited Kierkegaards favorite place at Gilbjerghoved near Gilleleje, a small fishing village at the Kattegat Sea, which gained world fame because of its heroic involvement in the rescue of the Danish Jews during World War II.
7 months later Ervin Laszlo came back to Gilleleje accompanied by the president of the Goi Peace Foundation Hiro Saionji and his wife Masami Saionji, and at a meeting in Tokyo the following year it was decided that The Goi Peace Foundation and the World Peace Prayer Society would grant a Peace Pole to the village.
Gribskov Municipality in Denmark have now decided that the Peace Pole will be placed at Søren Kierkegaards favorite place Gilbjerghoved.
In connection with the Mayor’s dedication of the Peace Pole on the 21st of September, the World Peace Prayer society will organize a flag ceremony, symbolizing that 193 heads of states have agreed to implement peace and justice in the world, through their endorsement of the 17 goals.
We will now take this further and translate it into personal, local and global actions. We would be very happy for you to join us.
As a courtesy we can offer all the CoB directors free participation in this event, including all meals. For their colleagues there is a reduced price of 1200 DKK (a reduction of more than 50%), also including all meals.
Transport and accommodation are not included, but we are happy to offer any practical help and advice we can.
"The people of the world have asked us to shine a light on a future of promise and opportunity. Member States have responded with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development... It is an agenda for people, to end poverty in all its forms. An agenda for the planet, our common home. An agenda for shared prosperity, peace and partnership."
— UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
We hope you will join us in support of this beautiful vision.
President, CoB Scandinavia
