"World Religions – Universal Peace – Global Ethic" Exhibit at AIM


The Asian Institute of Management is host to the opening of the World Religions – Universal Peace – Global Ethic Exhibit organized by the AIM Policy Center and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

The opening ceremony for the exhibit was held earlier and was highlighted by a ribbon-cutting with Mr. Klaus Preschle, Country Representative of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, AIM Policy Center Director Dr. Federico Macaranas and AIM Dean Victoria Licuanan. Copies of the AIM Policy Center's Philippine Cities Competitiveness Ranking Project 2007 were also distributed to the audience. (Yey!)

As for the exhibit itself, it's very interesting. The thesis of the exhibit about religions all over the world is that there are certain commonalities and if only people would focus on the similarities or a "global ethic standard," then the world would be a better place. A good example is the "Golden Rule "-- or the ethics of reciprocity is present in all the major organized religions in the world.

If you have the time to drop by AIM, then check out the exhibit beside the Meralco caseroom. Maybe you'll learn something interesting there. :)
