Free Film and Discussion
Catalyzing a Common Society
Featuring Sharif Abdullah
Sponsored by S.U.N. (Students United for Nonviolence)

"Our world has changed, but our governing principles, philosophies, and behaviors are based on ideas centuries old - ideas that address a world that no longer exists." - Sharif Abdullah, Creating a World That Works For All.

Few would argue that the world is poised on the brink of great peril and great promise. We have the ability to destroy ourselves and we have the ability to understand, communicate, and cooperate on a scale undreamed of in past centuries. We already know how to live in a world that works for only a few. The Common Society Movement seeks to catalyze the creation of a world that works for all.

Please join us to view and discuss a Common Society Movement Orientation video featuring Sharif Abdullah, Adjunct Professor at PSU, author of "Creating a World That Works For All" and founder of Commonway Institute

When: Thursday, May 3rd, 2007, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Where: Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 298 (1825 SW Broadway)
