Program 1

Visions of a Betterr World Conference

Organized by SUN affiliate the Taskforce for Humanity Coalition

The Conference will be held on October 10, 2009 at Seton Hall University Jubilee Hall 10am-5pm.

The purpose of this conference is to inspire a humanitarian consciousness. to motivate people to make a personal contribution to creating a better, more compassionate world. We wish to demonstrate, using creative, dynamic and compelling techniques various ways, many of them simple each individual or group of individuals can make a difference.  We will accomplish this goal with 6 types of programs that aim to:
Change Mental Attitudes
In order to make a difference, we have to believe we can do it. We must change our innate belief systems regarding our ability to effect change as well as our attitudes toward our planet, animal life and our fellow human beings.

Often, people need to be educated either to invoke their compassion, or to show why it is in their best interests to engage in certain behaviors. Once they receive the facts, they are likely to become more motivated to change.

These include practical activities, many of them simple, that people can do that if done in large enough numbers, can make a difference.

We live in a busy, stress-filled world. It will be difficult to have the energy to contribute to world betterment if we do not have adequate ways ofrelieving stress and maintaining our health.

In order to create lasting impact our values as a society have to change from that of a material, consumerism to one that values compassion, inclusiveness, Goodwill and a humanitarian consciousness. 

Spirituality provides meaning and purpose to approximately 95% of the World’s population. For many, it provides the foundation upon which they base their lives. Spirituality uplifts and provides an ideal toward which to work and is crucial to creating a better, more compassionate world.
