A Good Society

What comes to your mind when you think of a good society? What are the values a good society upholds?

I think of a good society as one in which fears, injustices and anxieties are respectfully acknowledged and effectively addressed.

Here are some websites you might like to explore:

Crisis States Research Centre, UK

The Fund for Peace, USA

United Nations Millennium Development Goals

Perhaps the key to world peace is good governance, based on universally applicable values. Yet disagreement over values is at the heart of many conflicts. If education is the answer, what is a good education?
