October 18 in the frame of the Day of Spiritual Accord, at 14:00 (GMT + 6), Nur-Sultan (Kazakhstan) will host an International conference themed: "Strengthening interfaith and interethnic harmony as an answer to modern world challenges ".
Having heard and discussed the reports of the participants, the International Conference titled “Spiritual Culture – a key to the transformation of the World” notes that the ideas and the documents of World Forum of Spiritual Culture (WFSC) are widely accepted. All events that followed the World Forum of Spiritual Culture, confirmed the spiritual and moral analysis of the situation on the Planet, which was made during the Forum. The interest in the work and results of WFSC deepens everywhere. Its members and supporters live in 72 countries, almost on all continents. The World Forum of Spiritual Culture is the continuation of deepening of a complicated process. Our aims are majestic and we are to follow an exciting way.
It is time to change over from correct, clear, mobilizing words to real, particular actions, to unity through cooperation and culture.
We invite all people, who are not indifferent to the universal values of Spiritual Culture, to cooperate, because we all have one Planet and common Future. With all the national, political, religious, material and other differences, we are people and we present one Earth civilization. We are human beings and having the threat of global disasters in front of us whether they are natural, technological, military, or any other - these differences fade and pale in significance. The question is how to save a man, a global human community.
We must preserve human civilization with all richness and diversity of cultures and traditions it has, and pass it to our descendants. We must build bridges between the hearts of people, nations and countries; we must look for new ways to do this. Everyone needs to look into his or her soul and be honest to answer: Why do I live? What values do I promote? What mark do I want to leave on the Earth?
We have joined our forces and thoughts to be heard, to get our hopes and aspirations across to the millions of people all over the world. There are many of us and our voice will sound like a Great Bell.
The second Forum, which will be held in Astana in 2013, will be built on this basis. We have the chance of a lifetime, so let’s use it for the sake of celebration of spirit and human dignity.
