The call states:
This world forum of plural and multidisciplinary thought is convened by the José Martí Project for World Solidarity. Since 2003 this project has been supported by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI), and other international platforms.
The International Conferences FOR WORLD BALANCE have become important academic spaces in which hundreds of professors, social activists and intellectuals in general, from all latitudes of the planet, meet every three years to reflect on the main contemporary problems.
On this occasion, this world meeting will be the culmination of a great commemorativejourney organized from January 2022 to January 2023 and dedicated to the 170th anniversary of the birth of José Martí, Apostle of the Independence of Cuba and universal thinker. As previous editions, the forum is also a continuity of the World Conferences Dialogue of Civilizationsand an extension of the debates of the World Congress of Humanities held in Liege, Belgium, under the auspices of UNESCO and the International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences.
We summon all people of good will, intellectuals, artists, politicians and activists to participate; we invite educators, writers, journalists, social activists, members of solidarity movements, political, religious andunion leaders; we call for members of non-governmental scientific, feminist, youth, peasant, environmentalist organizations... motivated by principles of justice and equity.
We wish to turn this forum of plural and multidisciplinary thought into a scenario for raising awareness among the world public opinionagainst the problems that afflict Humanity today, and put the very existence of our species at risk.
Through commissions, panels, workshops, symposiums, youth spaces, keynote conferences, special interventions and other forms of reflection and debate, fundamental issues will be addressed, as corresponds to an event of this nature and magnitude.
