The World Human Forum is a dynamic fusion of a think tank and a 'do tank'. Serving as a center of knowledge and action, we're committed to creating a brighter, sustainable future for all. This global citizens’ initiative seeks to harness and coordinate the innovative forces from across the globe, with the vision of establishing a genuine ecological civilization.
From conceptualizing groundbreaking ideas to materializing concrete projects and from unique gatherings in Delphi to Delphic Echoes echoing across continents, our mission is rooted in empowerment. We advocate for the acceptance of personal responsibility, fostering a community of proactive citizens dedicated to the collective good.
Our approach is inclusive and holistic, valuing insights from diverse domains—be it art, philosophy, agriculture, science, engineering, economics, social sciences, education, or personal development. We believe in creating a level playing field where every discipline has a voice, and none is privileged above the rest.
Our ultimate goal is to amplify the transformative influence of change-makers. To this end, we offer practical models and accessible avenues, guiding and encouraging everyone to take active steps in this essential journey of transformation.
Our planet faces unprecedented environmental, social, economic, and cultural challenges. Challenges which the 20th century political and economic systems have failed to address. The materialistic and consumerist model of the past decades has ignored human values and depleted our earth of its natural resources. Institutional trust is at an all-time low, income inequality is at an all-time high, and climate change an undeniable reality. Our priority is to reinvent ourselves, individually and collectively. We urgently need new, innovative solutions, a new paradigm for our shared future.
By connecting with thinkers and doers from around the world, we came to realize how many engaged citizens are experimenting with grassroots solutions that positively impact the lives of their communities. Mostly ignored by traditional power structures, they often hold the key to fresh and innovative solutions to pressing global problems. The WHF aims at connecting these creative forces, participate and amplify their transformation power, and act as a catalyst for the emergence of a new human-centric, earth-respectful paradigm. We, at the WHF, aim at supporting the formation of an ecological civilization via an ecosystem of innovative and earth-loving forces from around the world.
From inspiring ideas to concrete projects, from unique gatherings in Delphi to Delphic Echoes around the world, we believe that the way forward is by assuming our personal responsibility, becoming engaged citizens, and acting for the common-good. Our approach is holistic and garners contributions from a broad spectrum of disciplines. Our objective is to amplify the transformative power of change-makers.
Delphi is our anchor and symbolic point of reference. In antiquity, it led the Classical world to question assumptions, interpretations, and identities, to “know thyself”. We aspire that Delphi today will serve yet again humanity as a third space, physical and virtual, available for all to engage and collectively seek solutions to the key challenges of our time. An ideal place for AI (Artificial Intelligence) to meet the other, often forgotten AI, that of Ancestral Intelligence, and to come into dialogue in search for wisdom.
Delphi, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a place of unique natural beauty, energy, and historical prominence. In ancient times, it was considered the centre of the world. People from all around the Mediterranean world and beyond visited Delphi to seek advice from its oracle. Today, Delphi can again become a global reference point, where the innovative forces of our planet may gather to seek solutions. Delphi has the universal and symbolic capacity to federate humans. To provide the ideal place for AI, Artificial Intelligence, to meet the other, often forgotten AI, that of Ancestral Intelligence, and to come into dialogue in search for wisdom.
At the World Human Forum we follow a holistic approach. We garner contributions from a broad spectrum of disciplines that directly impact human life and touch upon our minds, bodies, and hearts. Some of the brightest minds in philosophy, science, education, economic development, join artists, spiritual leaders, organic farmers, social entrepreneurs, and other thoughtful, creative agents of change in pursuit of a common goal. A new paradigm for the future of our civilisation.
While we focus on concrete action, at the WHF we also investigate the deep causes of our current systemic crisis. At the heart of our human journey we consider the evolution of individual consciousness and its impact on the world we live in.
We consider financial independence and accountability as cornerstones. Although open to synergies and collaboration with all entities, we are determined to limit our funding to foundations and individual donations.
THE DELPHIC CUBE
A new tool, a new approach, a new methodology. The Delphic Cube aims at triggering a different mindset. The exact opposite of the known cube, though similar in looks, the Delphic cube aspires to lead us from fragmentation to integration; to breaking down silos; to proposing a holistic, interdisciplinary approach that continuously keeps the human at heart.
The Delphic Cube is a practical tool to assess projects and provide citizens with diverse entry points and opportunities to contribute.
With the use of the Delphic Cube we want to demonstrate how humanity will only thrive if in our analysis we integrate the six disciplines-colors of our cube: Sustainability & Regeneration, Democracy, Education, Inner Transformation, Science & Technology and Art — always with the human at heart.
Our Delphic Cube methodology is put into action via small-size, highly interactive type meetings, modeled after our annual WHF meeting in Delphi.
At our annual meeting at Delphi we invite 100 engaged citizens, thinkers and doers from the 6 disciplines of the Delphic Cube, to actively listen, discuss, and seek solutions.
Further to our Delphic Gatherings, we scout, research and connect the amazing initiatives, networks, micro-mega ecosystems from around the world. Guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we support interdisciplinary partnerships emphasizing the human-centric denominator. We aim at spreading the message every day, everywhere: the time is here for a new paradigm, for responsible, imaginative, self-empowered citizens to get into action for the regeneration of our communities, our countries, and our planet.
