Values & Guiding Principles
WE, The World seeks to help usher in a new era of planetary consciousness and conscience, in which people individually and through their institutions make life-affirming choices understanding their impact on the world’s social, economic and environmental systems – which in turn affect all life on Earth. Ways to accomplish this include:
How We Think
As much as possible, we use holistic global thinking in organizing, in issues analysis and as a perspective to be promoted to the public, especially in the countries that control the most resources.
Responding to what some people fear may become a “Post-Truth Society”, Leaders and Volunteers working with WE, The World assume the responsibility of being well-informed on the major issues that affect People and the Planet.
As leaders, we understand the power and importance of our everyday conversations, of our media broadcasts, of our postings on social media, and as role models in general – being the change we wish to see in the world.
This means that we make sure that we receive our news and issue information from a variety of sources that do not have monetary, political, ideological, religious, spiritual or other reasons to falsify information.
These sources do NOT engage in hate speech, sensationalism or advocate violence in any way. Usually that means they are non-profit, listener or reader-sponsored, and do not take political or corporate advertising.
What We Do
We seek to address the causes as well as the effects of poverty, violence, damage to our environment, and other problems that plague our planet by promoting visionary solutions – from other groups and from us.
We provide programs and other strategies such as 11 Days of Global Unity and 11 Campaigns to Transform Our World that foster collaboration between visionary efforts worldwide and which get many people involved, especially in the countries that control the most resources and power.
How We Treat Ourselves and Others
We seek to adopt modes of working and being together which foster a spirit of collaboration, creativity, excitement and fun for all who are working with WE, The World.
And at all times, we would like our actions to reflect a core of ethics and principles that models our vision for the world.
