Those who keep the fire alive

The WorldEthicForum is designed as a 7-year research journey embarked upon by 50 inspirational leaders. These Firekeepers came together from different geographical locations, ethnic groups and fields of activity. Together we define our approach and deepen our connections at online events and at the forum in Pontresina during the northern summer. We exchange knowledge, refine our theses and create conditions and structures so that we can exist and develop as a group over seven years.

The Firekeepers are persons who are deeply committed to a radically shared aliveness in their workplaces, communities and projects.
 They are intimately connected to the land [or places] which supports their work. Through writing, painting, active engagement, community building, research and other forms of expression, they work to strengthen the connections between all forms of life, raise awareness and create and enliven relationships.

The Firekeepers seek to share their unique expressions of radically shared aliveness and work with others around the world, and in this way contribute to creating a healthier, regenerative and caring planet. They include various councillors of the World Future Council.
