In Ghana, young people in particular have taken advantage of new opportunities to make their problems known and demand solutions. The Internet provides more opportunities than ever before: you can now break the monopoly of the elites to control the public information and discussion. Journalists have built up media in Ghana with which they can reach people all over the country and which people can use to make their problems an issue. Can this work in other countries as well? The Internet gives us the opportunity to learn from each other across all borders: how can we change our countries and the world where all people can live well and not just privileged minorities.

We had already one presentation and a discussion about the topic:

here the last part:

Presentation and first part of discussion:

Let's put our countries and our world in order together! Otherwise life will punish us!

Let's fix our countries! Let's Fix our world! (LFC-LFW) Let's fix our countries together! Let's fix our world together!) Basic understanding: A world in which not everyone lives in a humane way is not humane and has no future: injustice is the basis for discord, justice the basis for peace. Almost 100 years ago, after the world economic crisis and world wars, the states decided in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to see themselves as a worldwide human family. They promised to work together to ensure that all members of the one human family worldwide could live in dignity. In the UN Social Covenant and the UN Civil Covenant, the states legally committed themselves to realizing these goals: equal rights worldwide for all to life, food, health care, education, housing, freedom of expression, work and social security. In doing so, they wanted to create the basis for a peaceful world, for all conflicts to be resolved only by peaceful means, no longer by violence and war. States have not complied with international law, have not put it into practice. The rights of billions of people are not respected by privileged minorities who have arranged the world only for themselves. We no longer accept this, but are looking for ways to enforce and implement these rights for all. We need good representatives in politics and business. But we have also learned that trust is good, control is better. We can only be sure that we will get our rights if we ourselves understand the context and have the opportunity to participate in decision-making. Our network wants to contribute to the fact that as many people as possible want to and are able to do this themselves. We network in order to learn with and from each other, as is possible in each of our countries and also in their external relations of the states and on a global level. We want to examine the living situations and the possibilities to improve living conditions. For this purpose we can and want to exchange information and opinions internationally and support each other. We see ourselves as a non-partisan and party-independent citizens' network, in which we educate ourselves and seek dialogue with politicians, especially representatives in local, regional, national and continental parliaments. With these institutions we want to achieve measures for better living conditions. Internet, level of education, foreign languages, migration give us greater possibilities for this organization of cooperation today than any generation before us ever had. Building a world for all is more possible today than ever before, but it is also more necessary than ever before, given the looming climate catastrophe, nuclear weapons, the ever-widening gap between rich and poor, and the spread of war and violence. We are rarely informed about these rights of ours. In order to stand up for them, we should study them in depth and make them known, here are the documents: States must no longer use war and violence to settle their conflicts and must support each other to create social security for all as a basis for peace in all countries (Art. 55-56): UN Charter | United Nations The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted only as a declaration of intent: Universal Declaration of Human Rights | United Nations But its parts did become legally binding through two treaties: International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ( UNTC UN Social Covenant - International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights | OHCHR Prof. Dieter Senghaas has derived a model from history that shows the conditions for peace and can well serve as an orientation for people who want to create peace:

Peace as a civilization project: The civilizing hexagon by Senghaas – let´s create peace! ( Dieter Senghaas - The Civilizational Hexagon ( It is consistent in its conclusions with our international rights according to the above documents.

Let's put our countries and our world in order together! Otherwise life will punish us! (
