Online PR News – 07-January-2012 – – Los Angeles, CA. — January__, 2012 — Responding to the need for an “evolved sense of responsibility about what we can do to create a better world,” a group of renowned international scholars and thought leaders have launched a truly global online learning institution, the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University (www.giordanobrunouniversity.com) featuring an innovative curriculum, famed faculty including Dr. Deepak Chopra. Advisors to the university include four Nobel Prize winners and luminaries from politics, the arts, economics, and other arenas. The university provides an accessible, affordable model that brings college-level learning to thousands of students for whom such an opportunity may have been out of reach.
Announcing the visionary educational program, Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Chancellor of the University, esteemed scholar, systems philosopher, author and founder of the affiliated global think-tank Club of Budapest, stated, “The impetus for creation of the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University (GBGU) was the fundamental concept that every one of us is the architect of the future of humankind – what each of us does affects and concerns everyone else. It was our desire to educate people in ways meaningful for the present and relevant to our future – building a more sustainable, equitable and peaceful world.”
The University’s initial course, available beginning January 12, 2012, is “2012—Know the World, Know Yourself”, a one-of-a-kind course that asks students to imagine the “future blueprint of civilization. ”Its three parts range from analyzing and challenging elements of the world’s current physical and consciousness dimension to new paradigms of a sustainable and more humane society.
Among the illustrious faculty and Advisors to the GBGU are four Nobel Prize winners – Desmond Tutu (Peace), Mikhail Gorbachev (Peace), George Fitzgerald Smoot (Physics), Robert Mundell (Economics) — New York Times bestselling author Deepak Chopra, author and anthropologist Jane Goodall, futurist and author Barbara Marx Hubbard, renowned spiritual teacher Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and many others.
“GBGU was founded without any political, religious or economic boundaries – the desire is to incubate a new generation of thoughtful global citizens to make our world better,” said Francisco Leon Olea, founding member of the University.
The three-month course offers a curricular certificate. The University’s plans call for, among other expansion, numerous brick-and-mortar university sites in select global locations.
The Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University is a humanistic online institution, a fresh voice and up-to-date thinking to the global community, transforming obsolete paradigms and empowering the co-creation of an equitable, responsible and sustainable world.
