Its mission is to identify in field projects the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It puts into practice the principles of action, subsidiarity and cooperation.
By necessity, it intervenes in the difficult and delicate fields of politics and diplomacy.
In order not to distort its purpose and objectives, it constantly refers to two golden rules :
1. Ethics and responsibility for the common good
2. Dialogue and non-violence for individual and world peace.
3. WHAT WILL BE ITS STRUCTURE ?
For the sake of efficiency, it is structured to achieve outstanding performance in sustainable growth.
Four grades are instituted :
Members recognize each other as Peacemakers for humanity. The transition to the higher rank is done by peer-to-peer cooptation, which also validates the admission, at the express request, of the new candidates.
For its proper functioning, the leaders of the national Better World Agora Foundations and the International Foundation are elevated by right to the dignity of Commander.
The dignity of Master is offered to Nobel Peace Prize laureates and eminent personalities recognized for their contribution to world peace.
