As world federalists, we view the world as one society embracing all of humanity in all its diversity. We affirm that the ideals and principles of community life which are basic to civilized existence can and must be applied to international relations. We also affirm our determination to exercise our rights and responsibilities as citizens of the whole world in order to achieve the high purposes of the United Nations. To this end, we call for urgent progress in developing the democratic world institutions of law by which the world’s people and nations can govern their relations to assure a peaceful, just, and ecologically sustainable world community. These institutions must have actual and sufficient authority to make and enforce law in their given jurisdictions in accordance with the basic federalist principle of subsidiarity, which is the division of political authority and jurisdiction between different levels of government and the solving of problems at the level at which they occur, in general at the most local level possible. For this is the essence of world federalism: to seek to invest legal and political authority in world institutions to deal with problems which can only be treated adequately at the global level, while affirming the sovereignty of the nation-state in matters which are essentially internal.
Our Vision: A just, free, and peaceful world, where humanity and nature flourish in harmony.
Our Mission: To create more effective, transparent, and accountable global governance leading to democratic world federation.
In coming together to pursue our common vision and mission we value:
We act with honesty and integrity in everything we do. We communicate openly and respectfully, both internally and externally.
We welcome all who share our vision, mission, and values, and celebrate the diversity of our global movement.
We are stronger and more effective working together, creatively combining our diverse skills, expertise, and perspectives.
We are united in unwavering focus on delivering our mission.
