FOUNDING PURPOSES  OF THE GREEN UNIVERSITY

Why a New University ?

The founders of the Green University believe that education is the primary tool
we have to effect the transformation in global consciousness needed to reverse
the current crisis in world affairs Yet the conventional academic sector seems
unable to help solve the problems affecting world society. Indeed it sometimes
seems to have become part of the problem. Funding is scare and often has
political overtones, or industrial or business  overtones attached. Higher
education seems too often to be part of general socialisation and political
indoctrination into the status quo, and has lost the sense of academic freedom
and responsibility which the founders of the University tradition have fought so
dearly to establish. We are establishing the Green University as a new space for
independent and creative academic thought in which all those involved are
invited to get involved as equals, bringing their respective expertise,
knowledge  life experience,  to serve the common welfare of humanity and of the
planet as a whole.

WHY NOW ?
There has never been a more urgent need for objective, concerned and informed
study and research into the fundamental issues affecting life on our planet:
ecology, human rights, peace, social justice, environmental responsibility,
prosperity for all and not just for the few, and based on sustainable economic
practices, the cleaning up of the pollution left by the era of nuclear industry
and out of date heavy industrial technology, the revitalisation of our
communities, the ending of the despair and depression caused by decades of
neglect and social deprivation, the tackling of the problems of  unemployment,
the crisis of global malnutrition, global health problems including cancer,
Aids  etc. international crime and corruption, political short termism and
Populism, militarism and the continuing proliferation of the arms race... all
these problems seem to be getting worse, not better.

Conventional academia has adopted the model of ethical indifference, of moral
objectivity and neutralism. the Ggreen University, by contrast, is definitely
committed. We are pro peace, pro social justice, pro global sustainable
prosperity, We believe that since knowledge is the route to power, it must
become the means of empowerment for ordinary people worldwide as well as the
global elites. Whilst pursing the highest standards of academic excellence and
professionalism, we at the same time advocate a profound ethical engagement and
commitment to the amelioration of human suffering, cruelty and ignorance on our
planet.

The Green University was formally brought into being during the eclipse on
August 11, 1999,  on Bredon Hill, England.

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND
The Green University has come into being as a result of a feasibility Study
conducted at the University of London into the idea of establishing a new
College of Peace Studies, conducted at the Institute of Education. After an
exhaustive study of several years, in which a comprehensive global surevy of
education for peace and human rights and social and ecological justice was
undertaken, with innumerable leading educators from all over the world
interviewed, it was discovered that the conventional academic structures are
still not ready to embrace  the radical educational agenda which it is felt
necessary to help save the planet from its own follies. Too many academics are
still hung up about questions of status, power, control games, and seem more
concerned with trivialisation and the marginalisation of authentic inquiry than
in empowering their students and colleagues to genuinely push forward the
frontiers of knowledge.

Likewise, the governments' control of higher education, through financial
controls and through a multitude of subtle and overt manipulations, in which the
curricula and content of academic  life are subject to innumerable constraints
from politically controlled funding agencies, have militated against the
independent inquiry into solving the root causes of social and ecological
problems through concerted research and educational work.

Furthermore, business and industry have increased their stranglehold on higher
education funding mechanisms such that the corporate sectors now has an
inordinate power over the research agendas of most institutions of higher
learning in Britain, the USA  and throughout the world.

We believe that the time has come to stand up against these trends. It is time
to reinvent an autonomous and independent academic space for free and
responsible research and study, beyond the funding constrains of the status quo
and their corporate and political interests.

A large percentage of higher education funding in Britain and internationally
comes from the military establishments, from the Ministry of Defense and their
various quangos and equivalent worldwide.

How can we think through the necessary ways forward toward a nonviolent world if
our very institutions are clouded by military concerns and interests ?

The Green University will be totally free of all military funding and will place
research into peace  studies, conflict resolution, conflict prevention and
mediation at the very core  of its own research agenda.

GREEN UNIVERSITY COUNCIL
The Green University policy and educational mission is guided by a council which
comprises senior eminent educators worldwide involved in leading edge
educational innovation, in environmental studies, human rights, peace research,
ecumenical spirituality, conflict resolution and mediation,  philosophy,
political science etc.

Mission Statement
The Green University is an alternative, radical, holistic educational forum for
higher learning, drawing on the highest standards of academic excellence, to
investigate, research, study, teach and disseminate knowledge and wisdom
relating to all aspects of green thought and activity.

praxis, including: environmental studies, ecology, spirituality, human rights,
peace and conflict resolution, participatory democracy,

OBJECTIVES
To provide access to higher education in a green perspective
to bring together creative thinkers and activists from all areas of concern, in
a spirit of sharing and cooperation
To link people on a transnational and global basis
To serve as a new forum for higher learning in a genuinely cross cultural,
inter-faith, international  framework
To pioneer new forms of distance learning utilising the latest educational and
information technology
To prepare students through education to play a full part in shaping a new world
of peace, sustainable prosperity, social equality, and spiritual wisdom in which
the pursuit and attaintment of happiness becomes the fulfilled birthright of all
citizens of planet earth
To provide an intellectual framework to enable students to oppose all forms of
injustice and oppression and exploitation
To empower students to take an effective and informed stand again all
militarism, violence, organised violent crime
To educate students in the full range of traditional academic disciplines yet
with an added ethical  and spiritual dimension, pursuing deeper knowledge and
deeper wisdom than most traditional  academic  institions and Universities
embrace
To explore the full range of religious and spiritual and metaphysical frontiers
without enforcing any particular dogmatic paradigm or theological system on
students of staff, but encouraging open debate and research and experiential
work in the spiritual domain, free of all coercion and fear, in the belief that
unfettered research into the nature of ultimate reality is the ultimate purpose
of higher education, and that no one existing philosophical system has a
monopoly on absolute truth

MODES OF WORKING
The Green University is an experiment in cooperative learning, based on sharing,
mutual empowerment, mutual fascination and commitment to the pursuit of
knowledge
The G.U. encourages students to become involved in practical aspects of
environmental conservation work and to tie in their studies with practical
activities in this regard
The G.U.'s mode of working varies uniquely from student to student depending on
their own needs and situation; add can include face to face tutorials given by
staff members and faculty, seminars, lectures, conferences, symposia; telephone
and email tutorials; written work - essays, dissertations, theses; practical
action research;

ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE
The Green University takes as its operating model imagery and practices from the
organic world;
key tutors serve to focalise different areas of study; departmental clusters
bring together staff and students interested in particular areas of knowledge;
we intend to pursue growth through a natural process of organic evolution, and
to adopt such organisational structures as may unfold in the natural course of
time, rather than imposing from the beginning an artificial structure and rigid
boundaries of planning; The University will be structured according to Nine
Faculties, named after the Nine Muses of Ancient Philosophy, as a conscious
reinvocation of the wisdom teachings of the classical world, which were the
foundation and bedrock of the classical academic world, out of which grew the
whole of Western education, academia and the University of the Medieval world.
Each of the Nine Faculties in turn is empowered to organise such other
departments and  centres as is deemed appropriate.

Decisionmaking;
Decisionmaking is by a consensus model, drawing on state of the art models of
group dynamics and facilitation, in which the voice and higher insights of all
participants can be heard and listened to; in the event of any disputes of
conflicts arising internally mediation and conflict resolution procedures will
be followed, giving all parties a chance to air their views; the Green
University will encourage all staff and students to cultivate their inner self
knowledge and self awareness, and to develop compassionate intelligence,
avoiding doctrinaire and confrontational viewpoints, seeking flexibility,
humour, intelligence, wisdom, creativity, and empathy towards other fellows.

RESEARCH DIMENSION
The G.U. will conduct research in all areas of learning and will pursue the
highest standards of academic excellence and commitment to truth, in all the
areas of learning covered within the  Faculties of the University's work. Urgent
research is needed into many issues connected with contemporary problems in
world society, and it is also imperative to ensure that research is genuinely
fair, honest, transparent and methodologically rigorous. the Green University is
designed to act as a vehicle for bringing together the fruits of research in
diverse fields of knowledge, in new ways,. drawing on interdisciplinary and
transdisciplinary procedures, breaking new intellectual ground at the forefront
of knowledge generation. We hope to pioneer the new thinking which will be
needed for the new millennium.

TEACHING DIMENSION
The University  encourages excellence in teaching in all areas of study,
believing that teaching is a passion, an art, a vocation and a science, which
begins from inspiration, and develops through dedication, and is sustained
through commitment and discipline; the G.U. believes in the infinite worth and
value of teaching as a means of effecting the radical transformation of society
from ignorance to light, from suffering to happiness; from illness to health and
well being; The G.U. will develop training programmes for teachers who have
already received teacher education in the conventional academic sector to be
retrained with alternative and complementary skills which can bring benefit to
their conventional teaching jobs and responsibilities; the G.U. will endorse and
support a teacher training diploma for educators from across the teaching
professions; the G.U.  supports the work of teaching unions and professional
organisations and encourages their greater involvement in green activities and
environmental movements for radical grass roots amelioration of human suffering
through education; the G.U. endorses and actively promotes Education Aid as a
campaigning movement for schools and educational institutions worldwide to
become involved in fundraising for educational work in poorer and less
privileged parts of society and the world.

TRAINING
The G.U. supports a wide range of training courses and can recommend places to
go to achieve training in specific areas of work of relevance to its field,
globally. Our main training courses are in the field of teacher training, and we
are currently planning a two year  Masters  of  Education which will empower
tutors to work as full staff members of the Green University, and also to teach
elsewhere in different contexts. A variety of tutor training courses are also
available for teachers already working in various levels of education and who
wish to develop their skills further. These exist at all levels of the
educational sector, from nursery teachers, through junior high school, to senior
high school, undergraduates and in adult education. We believe that education
and training should be seen as parts of a process of  life long moments of
empowerment, in which love and wisdom are brought into harmony, and skills
acquired to make it more effective to manifest positive energies in a world in
need of light and clarity and compassion. the true training we offer is
therefore on the innermost planes of being, and the role of the Green University
is to empower the process of insight acquisition which each person on this
planet, a unique and precious child of Spirit and mother earth, is already
embarked on for themselves.


INFORMATION:
The G.U. is at the forefront of information provision in all aspect so of the
Greening of education, and provides networking facilities, contacts, information
on courses, and contacts in green education throughout the planet

SERVICE DIMENSION
The G.U. endorses a fourfold vision of the function of a university - teaching,
research, training  and service - this involves encouraging our membership to
actively become involved in social work projects, whether in their own immediate
neighbourhood or further afield - these can involve working with the local
unemployed or homeless, or with drug addiction problems, or in helping to clean
up local beauty spots or nature trails, or in reactivating sacred sites which
have been neglected, or in establishing community centres or spiritual
sanctuaries where people can feel able to connect with spirit again without fear
and embarrassment; or it could involve giving service to one's own family and
children in more loving and compassionate ways, and engaging with the education
of the very young, or with caring for animals - in short, it could involve
giving love to other living beings, and thus helping also to nurture oneself, in
any of a myriad of ways - that in turn will enrich and deepen one's purely
academic and intellectual studies.

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EXISTING UNIVERSITY SECTOR:
The Green University is envisaged as a University without walls - a centre of
educational excellence whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is
nowhere - an educational institutional pioneering the application of new
paradigm science and philosophy and spirituality, based on the activation of the
compassionate consciousness of human beings on the path to enlightenment and
beyond; working both as an institutional nexus in our own right, we also seek to
work cooperatively with other educational institutions and more traditional
universities, and we encourage students enrolled on courses in other
Universities to become fellows and students of the  G.U. as well - we encourage
cooperation in higher education rather than competition, and we do not seek to
supplant or rival existing university institutions, but to complement and
support their work
Staff working for the Green University may be active in a number of other
university institutions, and give as much or as ,little time to their work with
the G.U. as possible; likewise students enrolled on other courses, may give as
little or as much attention to their work with the G.U. as they can
        The precise relationship of the Green University to existing
institutions will vary from country to country, and from Institution to
Institution, and will depend partly on the degree of academic freedom which is
permitted in any given environment. The Green University depends on the highest
degree of intellectual freedom combined with the highest degree of intellectual
and spiritual responsibility.

EXAMINATIONS AND TESTING AND COMPETENCE
The G.U. encourages no competitive educational assessment, preferring self
assessment to competitive peer assessment; for those students wishing to make
use of more formal examination processes, these can be provided, but we insist
of on a threefold method of examination, in writing, orally, and in silent
meditation, in which students and examiners come  come into direct contact and
communion

STAFFING AND FACULTY MEMBERS
Tutors for the G.U.  are active in many professional walks of life, depending on
their abilities and experience; the director of studies has overall
responsibility for coordinating the tutors in the different faculties and for
arranging the smooth running of courses and all educational interactions;
different tutors in the various faculties are empowered to organise their
teaching loads according to their own private arrangements with students direct;
payment of fees is also negotiated individually between different tutors and
students, in addition to the payment of the admission and annual registration
fee payable by student fellows to the central administration of the university.


DIPLOMAS AND DEGREES
Diplomas and certificates are available in each of the Faculties
A Degree is awarded after he completion of at least three  modules from all nine
faculties of study
A higher degree (PhD) is awarded after the completion of a written thesis

STUDENTS AND FELLOWS
Members of the IIPSGP another affiliated organisations as well as members of the
general public  are entitled to apply for student fellowship of the G.U. on
payment of their annual membership fee;
Active studentship of the G.U. involves the payment of an annual registration
fee proportionate to the time which will be spent on their studies

FUNDING AND INCOME GENERATION
Funding for the  running of the G.U. comes from donations, grants, bequests,
awards, and income generated from the sale of publications, the provision of
educational services, from educational confers and from special fundraising
events; support and assistance is always welcomed for this aspect of the work of
the G.U.; a fundraising department with special responsibility to ensure the
smooth financial running of the G.U. and to ensure there are sufficient funds to
cover capital costs, tutors expenses, and to seek out sources of funding to
enable less well off students to complete their studies - the fundraising
department also functions as part of the overall faculty of Calliope within the
internal structure of the G.U..

INTERNSHIPS
Volunteers and students are welcomed to apply to work as volunteer interns
assisting the day to day running of the G.U.. They can give assistance either at
the main Centre of the University - in England - or from their own homes
wherever they may be.

CAMPUS LOCATIONS
The G.U. is currently located in a rural setting on Bredon Hill, Worcestershire,
England, but has other associated centres elsewhere. The basic idea behind the
Green University however is to create a virtual academic network of centres of
excellence, and clusters of research, which depend more on people and ideas than
physical geography or buildings. the Green university exists wherever people who
care deeply about the planet, and who enter into serious dialog, and study and
research into the underlying solutions to the many interconnected problems
facing us as a planet, using the power of thought, reflection, spirituality and
learning as our only tools and healing medicines. We have affiliated centres and
Green University / IIPSGP members active in the following countries: UK,
Ireland, Greece, Italy, France, Germany, Russia, USA, Norway, Sweden, Denmark,
Dubai, Macedonia, South Africa, Costa Rica, Brazil, Tibet, Nepal, China,
Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Bulgaria,
Rumania, Hungary, Wales, Scotland,  Austria, Turkey, Israel, Palestine, Jordan,
Spain and in many other countries worldwide.

Our belief is that Green issues transcend national borders and boundaries and
that the world's thinking community needs to pull together at this critical time
to render support, service and encouragement to one another. The Green
University is designed as a service vehicle to enable individuals to find their
true role in life and to serve the emerging global society with compassion and
wisdom both.
