Introduction

The World today is in the middle of an accelerating globalization process, to which tourism industry is closely related. In everyday language, tourism can be described as leisure time used for traveling and seeking desired experiences. Travel is clearly governed by the motive to escape, to pause and get some rest from an increasingly stressful life, and to see something new.

Today, travel and tourism is one of the world’s largest industries, responsible for more than 10 % of the global GDP. This industry is one of the biggest global employers with more than 250 million jobs depending directly or indirectly on tourism. 65% of those jobs are in developing countries.

1. Summary

 

 

In the present period of human history many of us feel deep questions arising about the world around us, about the perception of reality and about the understanding of humanity as we also see transformations taking place outside and inside. These feelings vary in our diversity, but in a general way we are questioning how the human species is transforming reality. Human capacities have been explored to a point where we become worried about its use: On the one hand it is clear that if modern civilization continues with the destruction of life supporting ecosystems the human species may perish; but on the other hand our power and intelligence give us great hope and enthusiasm for the future. We find ourselves in a dilemma: How to use our power and intelligence in a sustainable manner? It feels as if the human species, in its survival instinct, is searching for ways to prevent becoming obsolete and we wonder how to evolve further. The rising of ecological and sustainable awareness seems to come from that organic need of humans to create solutions for its evolution and survival. We need to continuously improve such awareness in ways to achieve positive transformations for our evolution as species.

Changing Education Paradigm Through Broadening Consciousness

- Dr. Galina Ermolina, Russia

Many people understand today that we as humanity actually have come to a crucial point in our development. Imagine for a moment, please: a spaceship with a crew from some highly developed planet arrives on Earth. They are aware of many secrets of Nature and use some kind of energy unknown to the inhabitants of Earth; the most amazing thing about them is however not their technology of the highest level, but the high moral standards according to which they live. In order to get information about the people of the planet Earth, firstly they decided to scan Earth’s mass-media; TV-programs, radio, etc. What kind of picture of the human race would they get?! A race of liars, criminals, people without spiritual values. That is exactly what mass-media show and impose on us today. They fill the atmosphere with hatred and violence, but I am sure we are not as bad as they depict us. All over the planet there are many sparks of light-bearers, and the participants of this respected conference belong to those who try to make a difference.

 
Culture Transcending Education from a Theosophical Viewpoint
Rudi Jansma, PhD, Theosophical Study Center, http://www.theosociety.org/

Theosophy literally means “the divine wisdom” which is the root and essence of all true human knowledge. It can be found at the heart of all great religions and philosophies. The basis of brotherhood among humankind lies there: not in the forms and dogmas of religions, however beautiful and helpful many of these are for our psychology, our mental and our social life. Religions should not “approach” “tolerate” or even “respect” each other, but they should find their common denominator of wisdom and compassion, or the True, the Good and the Beautiful – as Plato expressed it.
