We live in the midst of one of the greatest transitions in Earth's history.

World Emotional Literacy League (WELL), USA:
WELL is a non-profit educational project with the objective of teaching Emotional Literacy to the people of the world.
Ensuring everybody has a fundamental understanding of anger and other negative emotions will help us all lead a life that is peaceful, meaningful, and joyful. Emotional Literacy helps us to advance personally and as a society as much as the ability to read, write, and do mathematics does.
Nepal is the first country in the world to introduce this training in schools on a national level. Our overall goal is to teach Emotional Literacy in every school to help develop a world culture that will not only allow individuals to lead a joyful, more effective and rewarding life, but will ultimately create world peace.

Global Harmony Association(GHA) India:
The old GHA was created in an industrial civilization, in February 2005 and lived over 6 years. The GHA’s main advantage that distinguishes it from all the organizations and communities - is a scientific, tetra sociological (four-dimensional, pluralistic) theory of social harmony and harmonious civilization. The core of this theory is the ABC of social and individual harmony (see below). Recently, the shortest (35 pages) and most complete explanation of this theory, can be seen at: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=400. For brevity, we title this theory as harmonism theory (or harmonism science) to differentiate it from all the theories of industrialism (industrial civilization) in all forms of capitalism and socialism. Harmonism theory integrates the advantages of the theories of communism and capitalism, overcoming their fundamental weaknesses and fights for their ideas.
For 6 years the GHA embodied this theory in the 32 innovative projects of global harmony (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=472). They supported the GHA Mission: Pave thescientific way for a harmonious civilization, based on the harmony ABC with the priority of spiritual culture and the gradual abandonment of materialism and greed. For 6 years, 32 innovative projects – it is an index of high efficiency of the GHA theoretical knowledge - Tetrasociology as a science of social harmony at the level of a harmonious civilization (the harmonism theory).
Only this theory, and the corresponding new “tetranet harmonious thinking”, allowed GHA to understand the approach of a harmonious civilization and its birth in 2009 in its first system qualities: nuclear zero, science of social harmony and the mathematics of harmony. The historical fact of the birth of a new civilization is not aware in the world today, there is not a single theory and nor one organization.The social reality of this civilization is created by building a harmonious society, as has been done in the EU since 1992 and China since 2006 with a total population of about 2 billion people - nearly a third of mankind.
However, both the EU and China builds by intuition and spontaneity, on the basis of traditional, one-dimensional and non-harmonious industrial thinking, and not adhering to any theory of a harmonious civilization. This creates fluctuations and crises, lack of achievements and the continuation of industrial pathologies. For example, the EU has a failed policy of multiculturalism, which without the scientific theory of harmonism was doomed to failure from the beginning, in spite of its original societal correctness. The same type of problem exists in China, which can not decide the issues of Taiwan, Tibet, and multiparty democracy, etc., without using the scientific theory of harmonism. The absence of a scientific theory prevents China from defining a long-term strategy for the successful harmonious solution of these and similar problems. GHA is able to create appropriate scientific projects for the EU and for China, and to guide them on their path to harmony. We have repeatedly offered the EU and China the GHA projects, but due to incomprehension/ignorance their acceptance of harmonic thought will be a slow path.
So, after 6 years, GHA’s main achievement is: it introduced a new social science, a subject which is called the science of harmonious civilization. GHA has used this science in 32 projects. The GHA achievements are obligated by their existence to new scientific knowledge – to the use of the harmonism theory. Which is the core and foundation of the spiritual culture of harmonious civilization. Therefore, the main advantage of the GHA is that it is able to provide its members with a unique culture and science of harmonism via their numerous projects for the conscious building a harmonious civilization on all levels: from individual to global. This quality defines the basic appeal of the GHA for the new members.
This knowledge has connected the GHA Mission – it has paved the scientific way for harmonious civilization, and its high spiritual meaning for each GHA member, who, having mastered this knowledge, transforms into a conscious creator of our civilization.
All these years, GHA, as the institution of public sociology, has sought to collect and publish on its website "Peace from Harmony” (www.peacefromharmony.org) the diversity of ideas/knowledge of the social harmony of different authors from any country without restriction. As a result of this research, the GHA has collected from more than 100 authors of different schools of thought the world's ideological heritage of social harmony including works from: existentialism, idealism, Marxism, Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism, and others. Many of these important ideas have been seamlessly integrated into tetra sociological theory/science of harmonism and the GHA’s 32 projects. The GHA has not found any alternative theory in the world during the last 6 years of research. GHA hopes and does not exclude the possibility of an alternative scientific knowledge of social harmony and harmonious civilization. The harmonious competition of this scientific knowledge would be a powerful source for its development.
Therefore, GHA equips its members with knowledge, which is devoid of dogmatism and aggression, is in constant creative development and cooperation with all the ideas and theories of social harmony, and hopes that the members of GHA willingly and openly share the ideas of social harmony with their network of friends and colleagues worldwide.
