What do you like most about being a member of WFM/IGP’s Board?
“It is a very enriching experience to be part of a group of highly committed and sensitive people who share a common goal, which is: finally arriving at the so much desired world federation – an endeavour that is mirrored in the way we cooperate in the Executive Board.”
Why are you a world federalist?
“I am a world federalist because I think that a world federation is the only logical way for humankind to organise the domestic affairs of planet Earth; the separate nation-states are not fit to solve the world problems humanity is presently facing.”
What is the future you are working towards?
“I see a future in which we respect Mother Earth and all life upon her and where all can thrive fully according to each individuals’ unique talents. A world federation can provide the structures for us to organise as such.”
