Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1268 ~    30 December 1997

There exists a Non-governmental Organization born in Italy which recommends the creation of an International Court of the Environment. 

How right they are: the majority of business firms and governments will not fulfill the recommendations of the United Nations concerning the environment, not fulfill their obligations under treaties they have adopted. 

Only law will force them to do it. 

The same way as we had an International Court of Justice against the criminals of World War II and will now have another one for the crimes committed in Yugoslavia we need International Courts of Justice for Human Rights and for the Environment. 

The International Court of the Environment Foundation is presided by Amedeo Postigliopne, Judge at the Supreme Court of Italy.  Address: Corte Suprema di Cassazione, Piazza Cavour 1, Rome, Italy.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
I once asked a Professor of architecture of the Rome Studies Program to give me ideas for an architecture or art program at the University for Peace, I received this answer:
"The symbolic poverty of modern architecture renders it incapable of erecting monuments to genius and peace.  Le Corbusier's Chapelle de Ronchamps is an anomaly in the work of this prophet of the machine and utilitarianism.  He had to borrow the form of a nun's headgear to reach a certain level of beauty."
