Purpose and Activities

 The purpose of this CC is threefold:

 First, to re-engage the biology and politics of starvation based on the best science and social science criteria (similar to the way in which small pox was eliminated). And to begin to create a new infrastructure to eradicate starvation, described by leading experts as “arguably the cruelest disease.”

 The secondary purpose is to cultivate greater public awareness of the effects of the “extreme poverty-malnutrition-starvation-famine-violence-continuum.”

 Third, to depoliticize this human tragedy and utilize the tools of medical science in conjunction with Interfaith, Global Ethic and Charter for Compassion, ethics, chaplaincy and global civil society and the UN. 

 The activities are:           

 Designing negotiation platforms for deep multi-social-sector cooperation / collaboration, intra-nationally and internationally, using the tools of conferences, publishing, lexicography, education, research, public policy formation, new methodology, social media, art, social innovation philanthropy, revised Hippocratic Oath, “best practices” among others.

We address the twin crises of our time: extreme poverty and climate change-environment through furthering personal and collective self-determination in a global context of unity and diversity.
