GEP at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women

The Isa Viswa Prajnana Trust (IVPT), organizer of the Global Energy Parliament (GEP), was represented at the United Nations 63rd session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW63), by Dr. Kimberly Davis (shown in the photo). It took place from 11th to the 22nd of March 2019.

IVPT holds consultative status, as an NGO, to the United Nations ECOSOC. This enables us to participate in UN meetings to advocate for GEP's resolutions on various issues influencing policy. It also provides an opportunity to build relationships with like-minded NGOs and individuals.

This was the world’s largest gathering on women's issues. There were more than 5,000 NGOs present, and Ministers from 200 countries spoke. Discussions focused on social protection systems for women.

GEP’s submission stated, "Social protection systems for women and girls should take into account not only physical protection, but also emotional and intellectual protection. Society must also develop a greater understanding and appreciation for what womanhood is.

For society to improve, serious changes must be implemented at the root level in education. A new method of education is crucial - an education where people, knowledge, and the world outside are not mere objects, but related to the subject (the learner). Education for Total Consciousness is such a complete system of education that integrates both subjective and objective learning. The learner becomes a real human being, aware of his/her connection to the universe, world, nation, society, and environment.

Protection, empowerment, equality, compassion, love and service of, by, and for women can become the life’s breath of the next generation if students are educated in this way.

Therefore, we strongly advocate that all nations, implement the Education for Total Consciousness teaching methodology in their schools."

The Global Energy Parliament is also instituting a Women's Parliament as a global platform for women to discuss these issues and advocate changes to national and international policy.
