Subject: Invitation to participate as Guest of Honour in the 24th International Conference of Chief Justices of the World to be held from 1st to 7th November 2023

Your Honour,

On behalf of over 58,000 students of City Montessori School (CMS) — representing the world's over 2.5 billion children and generations yet-to-be born — we take great pleasure in inviting you to participate as Guest of Honour in the 24th International Conference of Chief Justices of the World on Article 51 of the Constitution of India to be held from 1st to 7th November 2023. So far 1429 Hon'ble Chief Justices, Judges and Heads of States from 138 countries have participated in the past twenty three Conferences.

The most powerful common denominator for all the nations is their children and no nation can ignore the fact that it is our duty to bequeath to our children a better inheritance than that bequeathed to us. Therefore, the theme of the Conference is ‘Global Governance for a Sustainable World Order’.

Nobel Laureate Jan Tinbergen had said: “Mankind's problems can no longer be solved by national governments. What is needed is a World Government. This can best be achieved by strengthening the United Nations System."

Today, international terrorism, lawlessness, global environmental degradation and danger of a world war seriously threaten everyone without exception. It is, therefore, imperative to regulate international conduct, create an atmosphere of global unity and peace and to ensure a safe future for humanity, especially for over 2.5 billion children of the world and the generations yet-to-be born. In this regard, Article 51* of the Constitution of India acts as a beacon, as it promotes international peace and security and “respect for international law”.

*Article 51 of the Constitution of India
The State shall endeavour to:
  1. promote international peace and security,
  2. maintain just and honourable relations between nations,
  3. foster respect for international law... and,
  4. encourage settlement of international disputes by arbitration.

CMS (a senior secondary school) is recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world's largest school by pupils in a single city with, presently, over 58,000 students and is the only school to have been awarded for the year the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education that is received in the year 2002. CMS is also an NGO associated with the United Nations (UNDPI). CMS upholds that 'A Modern School must act as a Lighthouse of Society' and must concern itself with the affairs of the age. Hence this initiative on children's behalf.

A highlight of the Conference will be the presentation of a petition to the World Judiciary by CMS students on behalf of world's children, to safeguard their future and for protection of their rights. The collective voice of the World Judiciary is bound to be taken with seriousness the world over and your participation is vital for the success of the Conference and for the cause for which it is being organized. We shall eagerly look forward to your acceptance of our invitation at the earliest.

With highest regards,

Dr Jagdish Gandhi
