At the conclusion of the World Forum on Ethics, which was held simultaneously in five cities in Mexico from January 27-29, participants issued an “Ethical Decalogue” with the conclusions of the working sessions. One of the most important points of the statement is the call to declare the family a patrimony of humanity.
The president of the Institute for Family Policy of Spain, Eduardo Hertfelder, told Europa Press about other issues discussed at the Forum. “The Forum has been incredible because it has taken place in five cities in which there has been ample room for the public, as we estimate some 1,500 people have participated at each one of the locals,” he noted.
He said participants also called for more equal access to the media, in order to prevent a monopoly on information. “A new forum based on ethics and on the person has emerged,” Hertfelder said.
