Prosperity and aridness
14 DEC 2016
The XII ECPD International Conference examined pathways between Regionalization and Globalization as determinants for the future of the world. The asked what stands in the way of integration, whether we can simultaneously think globally and think regionally and what are the strengths and weakness in the inherent processes and present outcomes over the many domains of society (which approaches to the challenges involved could be most effective for all parts of society) and in all parts of the world. In continuation, the Balkan world received a check up and (and the pressures affecting the region were assessed and global pulse was measured. Tensions between the Russian Federation and the United States of America, migration resulting from armed conflict and poverty in the Middle East, tensions within the European Union after the UK Brexit vote, and the new strategic paradigm of macro-regionalization were high on the agenda. The role of China was agreed to be of key importance in the global system. A number of presentations / additional discussion covered the ongoing global socio-economic crisis and a description of potentially accelerating global catastrophe; the survival of humanity and man’s future together with its rough edges and the paradoxes of life; our responsibility as a precondition for peace, the new Cold War and allocation of guilt; migration as an exceedingly complex problem, peace in the Middle East and the lack of Global Governance. A Concert by the Ensemble Renaissance took us back to gentler moments calming to the nerves.

FUTURE OF THE WORLD
BETWEEN GLOBALIZATION AND REGIONALIZATION
(Belgrade, City Hall, 28–29 October 2016)
NOTE FOR DISCUSSION
Today, the world is experiencing - living through, many conflicts of various natures and magnitudes but perhaps the most import one is that of a conflict between two world models evolving dynamically in two different spheres, on two different time scales with two different time constants, one over the short term, entrenched in immediate self interest, the other, a longer one relating to socio-economic responsibility. They straddle a dichotomy of politics and profit versus sustainability of humanity on planet earth. Stated differently, the two models emphasize an asymmetry between short term gains of business and appropriate well-being of the population. This conflict is both mental, which unfolds as a thought process and socio-economic and the reality of its detrimental effects on the world. It is a crisis within a framework of disparity, namely, affluence and inequality, in a background of ill-founded and debt-based development in which markets far from free monopolized by business, and where standards of practice and productivity lack appropriate influence. One outcome is a disabling influence on social responsibility and has helped precipitate the current crisis. The way out of the crisis demands creative cooperation, the application of interdisciplinary sciences and the cultivation of socio-economic responsibility. The way forward is to make culture the basis for human relations. Stated differently, it calls for a culture of peace with wisdom, reason, morality and justice.
On Friday, 28 October, within the ECPD International Conference “FUTURE OF THE WORLD BETWEEN GLOBALIZATION AND REGIONALIZATION”, held in the City Hall, 28-29 October 2016, a presentation of the book “Remembering Jim Grant: Champion for Children”.

DRAFT OF THE PROJECT
HEALTH FORUM OF SOUTH EASTERN EUROPE
The global economic crisis is posing serious challenges to health policies and health systems all over the world. The challenges we have been faced with call for re-examination of performance, sustainability and remodeling of the health systems. Innovative solutions and new approaches to meeting the health sector needs, as response to the challenges, require more intensive exchange of experiences and information and more intensive global and regional cooperation. Furthermore, the process of implementation of the New European Health Policy - Health 2020 by WHO member countries of the European Region requires joint efforts and opening of the functional communication channels.
Master studije iz integrativnog – holističkog pristupa zdravlju
Medicina se od svog početka zalagala za celovito posmatranje čoveka, prepoznajući bolest kao narušavanje harmonije (homeostaze), između tela, uma i duha. Još od vremena Hipokrata, medicina je tržila uzroke zdravstvenih problema u čovekovim mislima i osećanjima, stavovima i uverenjima, stanjima njegovog duha i duše. Takođe se zalagala za primenu prirodnih oblika lečenja, gde je lekar bio samo posrednik između prirode i čoveka.
Današnja medicina, nakon dužeg perioda materijalističkog redukcionizma, prepoznaje potrebu vraćanja svojoj izvornoj ulozi ostvarivanja jedinstva između materijalnih i energetskih i duhovnih aspekata čovekovog bića, tako važnih za poboljšanje i njegovog zdravlja i kvaliteta života.
Savremena nauka, sa novim saznanjima iz kvantne fizike, bioinformacione tehnologije i prirode psihosomatskih poremećaja, teži da integriše znanja iz ovih oblasti. Holistički pristup zdravlju kao filozofija, nauka i umetnost lečenja - isceljenja, ali i kao stil života, ponovo je aktuelan poslednjih decenija. Svi oblici tradicionalne - komplementarne medicine (kineska medicina sa akupunkturom, homeopatija, hiropraktika, kvantna medicina i druge) se oslanjaju na holistički pristup zdravlju i ne mogu se uspešno primenjivati bez razumevanja holističkog koncepta.
