60eme anniversaire de la Déclaration Universelle des Droits de l'Homme, Ile Verte sur Second Life (Les Humains Associés), 10 décembre 2007


« We invite one and all to reflect on the human condition, the fact that we make up part of an indivisible whole: Let us not be deterred by that which divides us but look for that which unites us. » (Quote from the Global Manifesto, founding text of the Associated Humans – Les Humains Associés -, 1984).
