The Ministry of Humanism

As the United Nations face growing challenges and become increasingly hampered by political debates, Maxime Benvenuto proposes an alternative, yet complementary approach. He introduces a Ministry of Humanism for each government to support the quest for global peace. To create a common ground for all participating nations, he has written a law that defines the aims and tasks of the Ministry. The underlying ideals are also translated into a design blueprint for buildings and furniture. These embody the pluralistic and polymorphous aspects of different cultures and are grounded in core ideas of equality and tolerance. By rendering irrational hope into rational terms and concrete proposals, Benvenuto aims to bring a brighter future a step closer.
