- Specific Aims
(i) Elimination of all nuclear weapons and all weapons of mass destruction.
(ii) Restricting global warming to 1.50 C.
(iii) Others aims considered crucial for the wider aim, to be specified from time to time.
- Immediate Aim
World-level declaration of 2020-30 as the 'Decade for Saving Earth', signifying highest priority for the objective of protecting and saving the life-nurturing conditions of planet earth. In brief this immediate aim is called SED 20-30.
Keeping in view the increasing serious threats to the life sustaining conditions of earth and the need to find time-bound solutions on most urgent basis within the framework of justice, peace and democracy, the decade 2020-30 should be declared 'Save the Earth Decade’. This will help to focus attention on the foremost issue - that it is of the greatest urgency today to protect the life sustaining conditions of planet earth.
It needs to be established clearly that saving the basic life-nurturing, life-sustaining conditions of earth is the most urgent task and this should be accomplished within a framework of justice, peace and democracy. All the issues of world should be taken up with this as the central, basic aim.
