A reflection on the theme: 'Towards a Loving World, Leadership and Governance for Well-Being'.
Love, compassion and humanist consideration - caring for others - from local community leadership all the way up to the leadership of nations is a key element in moving towards a Loving World. We all have to take responsibility and work together to change our world.
