Club of Budapest
|This article does not cite any sources. (October 2008)|
The Club of Budapest is an international organization founded in 1993 by Ervin László to expand beyond the exclusively scientific purpose of The General Evolution Research Group to try to mobilize the full cultural resources of humanity to meet the future challenges.
The Club of Budapest is an informal association of creative people in art, literature, and culture.
It has branches in Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hawaii, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Samoa, Switzerland, Turkey, the United States and Venezuela. Its first global ambassador was Fiona Douglas-Scott-Montagu, Baroness Montagu of Beaulieu.
The philosophy of the club is based on the realization that the challenges that humanity is facing can only be overcome through the development of a global cultural consciousness. Like Greenpeace fights for ecological issues, UNICEF for children, and Amnesty International for human rights, the Club of Budapest stands for global consciousness.
