This recording features the highlights of this historic 1995 event sponsored by the Temple of Understanding and includes a talk by the late cosmologist Carl Sagan. Visions for the 21st Century was a powerful forum for religious leaders, diplomats, non-governmental organizations, and educators to present their visions for the next century.

The interfaith assembly, inspired by the acknowledgment of the need for “the political to be informed by the spiritual”, urged the United Nations to provide a new paradigm of thought which centers on the responsibility for fostering global values of caring, compassion and tolerance.
