A talk by Marco Toscano-Rivalta of the United Nations Center for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) on The United Nations as a "Centre for harmonizing the Actions of Nations". "...the will is instrumental in the processes of 'impression', 'creative thinking' and 'direction' which lie behind the truism 'energy follow thought'. Therefore, understanding the will, its nature, its functioning, its characteristics, and the fact that we need to dedicate time and effort to its development, is of fundamental importance. The work to build a centre for harmonising the actions of ourselves, or of nations, needs to follow a specific program. In order to harmonise actions, actions need to be initiated. Many forms of action need to be explored in order to channel the will existing in, and to be manifested by, 7.2 billion people."Per Saperne di Più
