The inception of ICEC
People are satisfied to judge things by their own narrow experience; never knowing of the wide world outside. Often this leads the individual to have biased ideas and beliefs of the world. German philosophy and epistemology were the first to research this wide world perception and tells us that the opinions of a people originate from their unique world experiences which they experience over several millennia. This view serves as a framework for generating various dimensions of human perception and experience like knowledge, politics, economics, religion, culture, science, and ethics. If this is so, why not the reverse? Could giving ourselves more exposure to the world’s cultures foster a harmonious tomorrow? We definitely think so.
The International Cultural Education (ICEC) was set up with this belief in mind. ICEC is a not-for-profit society based in New Jersey, which was started with the vision to provide excellent service to the citizens of this planet. The main aim of the society is to bring about unity and harmony among the peoples of the world through the sharing of cultures and customs. ICEC aspires to be the platform for showcasing cultures of the world, bringing together various cultures of the world we inhabit, so that all can realize the richness in diversity between societies, the art forms that exist outside our geographical boundaries and learn to appreciate the myriad of art forms that exist outside our borders.
Through the exchange of cultures, we aim to foster better friendships among peoples of the world. The many problems faced by our world today are common to all of us, and only such friendships can bring about solutions to them. It is this realisation that binds the ICEC community. Through the slogan “Planet for Everyone”, we try to highlight that the world is under our collective ownership, and thereby our collective responsibility.
