New Humanity Movement

Health: Person, Environment

Thinking of “the common good” by thinking first of the well-being of the individual is a sure way of finding previously unimagined solutions, but also for sharing ideas and proposals to better the quality of life in our cities, even from the ecological point of view. From the global to the particular, the commitment to health and psychophysical well-being generates a good life which is part of a better society.

The culture of life

“In every family is the life of the others as precious as one's own? Here is the seed of the culture of life, that should underlie every law and every social structure”.


Biological life, from conception to death, has an intrinsic dignity, which bestows upon each person a per se value. This dignity originates from the psycho-biological singularity, which is an objective scientific datum, about which everybody agrees. Indeed this uniqueness allows to understand the value that every single person has, her inner life, her thoughts, beyond any possible philosophical, religious, or ideological difference. Each person represents a unique and singular aspect of the richness of life, and she can express herself only if both the environmental and cultural contexts allow her to do it. Confronted with the ever new discoveries of science and technique, a natural need appears, namely the need to help society in promoting an integral culture of life, that can take into account every expression, phase, and condition. A unanimously shared value of life should be the base of any political and social committment.

Under this point of view, let us try and highlight what already exists:

1) Are there in your city cultural, institutional, voluntary actions, that show particular concern for the beginning and the end of life?
2) In your city are there  experiences of health operators, rearchers, citizens, which are perceived as innovative and look at the patient as a whole, at not only under a sheer bio-medical (i.e. illness, diagnosis, therapy) point of view?
3) In your city are there institutions or voluntary experiences, that give value to the solidarity attitude from citizens, and therefore give a contribution to participation to community life from sick, elder and disabled people, and their families?
4) Are there social agencies taht promoted the development of services for people with specific diseases?
