The visions and methods of NPOs are as diverse as the causes they serve. Still, we believe that there are underlying common threads in the consciousness and attitudes of people involved in NPO work. These may include:
The foundation of all these attitudes and actions is respect for human rights through the valuing of human dignity. These attitudes also align with our 2011 Report, which emphasized the revitalization of solidarity. We believe that these attitudes, when put together, lead to spontaneous actions large and small, and can help visualize and solve social problems or promote changes in policies and systems. This means that insights which can deconstruct the social structure shall be valued.
In the ideal “civil society with diversity and individual autonomy” that we outlined in the foundational vision, the importance of these attitudes would be widely accepted. And we believe that NPOs form an important collective space where these values are created and accumulated.
