Building A Planetary Culture
Peace And Global Citizenship

Project: Centro de Estudos Universais - Towards a Planetary Citizenship
The CEU - Centro de Estudos Universais (Center of Universal Studies) - is
a division of the Universidade Anhembi Morumbi (São Paulo
Brazil) aimed at exploring and promoting the interplay between the
fundamental kinds of knowledge: art, science and spirituality. Among
the goals of the CEU are: 1) to contribute to build bridges between
production of knowledge and action, between theory and practice,
between the local and the global; 2) to study and to diffuse cultural and
ethnic manifestations from Brazil, as well as from all the over the
world; 3) to promote the formation of a planetary citizenship trough the
development of abilities to face the complexity, the transformations
and the diversity of the contemporary world; 4) to conduct research and
actions to disseminate a culture of peace. In order to achieve their
goals, the CEU presents a threefold structure constituted by three
Research Nuclei (RNi) in: 1) Art and Consciousness; 2) Ethnic
knowledge; 3) Transdisciplinarity. The close connectedness of the RNi
guarantees the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach of
all actions of CEU: graduated courses; extension courses; study groups and
seminars; cultural actions.
