    • We must protect our rights and take seriously and put into practice the obligations that follow from these rights.

Global Village

  • Global Village refers to the idea of the world being an interdependent community where we all have a responsibility to develop and maintain the world as a place of justice and peace through focusing on the common needs of all people (the common good)

      • Much of the oxygen we breath comes from the rain forests of Brazil.
