Like all living organisms, communities must have basic components or "branches" to exist.
Ultimately, the balance and health of each branch determines if a community is to merely survive or,
in the best of worlds, thrive. We believe truly interdependent, civilized communities are non-violent
and utilize compassionate ethical methods and solutions to address the different problems within.
Our organization seeks to build such communities.
The World Ethical Foundations Consortium (WEFC) is a highly directed initiative promoting the
understanding and application of compassionate ethics in the world community. Our distinguished members
are individuals demonstrating a high degree of ethics and commitment to
humanity—compassionate ethics—and an expertise in at least one community branch.
We provide these individuals with a unique ethical toolset enabling each to resolve ethical questions
and achieve a deeper understanding of the nature of compassionate ethics. With this understanding,
a person can come to experience compassionate ethics within more fully and, in turn, apply it in all
decisions. In this way, WEFC experts may examine any issue within the world, understand the nature of the
fear underlying the issue, and create innovative pathways to resolve the issue through compassion.
