A group of 30 Nobel Peace Prize winners gathered at the Vatican this week to talk about promoting peace, and one of them had a message for today's "profit-centric" society: It's time to create a " civilization of three zeros": zero global warming, zero wealth concentration, and zero unemployment, reports Catholic News Service.

"We have to rediscover ourselves as human beings with human value," said Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladeshi social entrepreneur who won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

"What I saw was we're all in this together as citizens of planet Earth," he said, citing the International Space Station as an example.

"I did not see racial division, I did not see religious division, and I did not see political division.

What I saw was we're all in this together as citizens of planet Earth."

Other Nobel winners at the World Meeting on Human Fraternity included Gra ? a Machel Mandela, former first lady of both South Africa and Mozambique, who said that "we have to accept that this is man-made, it is not God-given, it is not even in nature," and that "that means we have the power to undo this, we have the capacity to change the logic."
