The EARTH is our home and only source of life

We dream of a society based on solidarity that acknowledges the right of the Earth. With the WorldEthicForum, we want to move this vision to the fore and embed it in national and international law.

Pius Tschumi is the Director of the Mühlerama Museum in Zurich. He organises exhibitions on topical issues relating to food production and consumption for the historic industrial mill which doubles as a food museum.

Linard Bardill
Managing Director WorldEthicForum

This transformation of our consciousness, the realization that we are one with the Earth, is for me one of the decisive landmarks on the path to continued human existence on this wonderful Earth. Linard Bardill is one of the most successful celebrated public figures from the Swiss performing arts and children’s music scene. He campaigns relentlessly for a future suitable for our grandchildren. He visits children who are spending time in hospital or in children rehabilitation as an ambassador of the foundation Kindherhilfe Sternschnuppe with his magical bed songs. He ran for an office in the government of Graubünden with the goal of advocating fair economics and schools that unleash the full potential of their pupils. He achieved reasonable success.

Selina Lucarelli
Coordinator WorldEthicForum

Already as a little child, Selina Lucarelli stood up for living beings. As an environmental engineer, she was employed for six years at the building control office of the municipality of St. Moritz, where she was responsible for environmental concerns. She discovered her enthusiasm for coordination at I BIKE to move it 2019, the Swiss bike ride to the national climate strike in Bern with 1,200 participants. She was responsible for the communication and the general coordination of the 32 bike routes to Bern. She organized the longest route from St. Moritz to Bern and cycled the nine-day journey herself.

Luea Ritter
Process designer WorldEthicForum

Luea Ritter works internationally across various sectors to guide and design holistic transition processes that embrace the challenge and potential of our times. She thrives within complexity, and through a diverse medley of fields has developed a high sensitivity for context-based social dynamics. She weaves societal change practices, trauma and healing work, leadership and Earth-based wisdom traditions to cultivate capacities in individuals and collectives. She is part of collaboratio helvetica, an initiative that catalyses systemic change towards the societal transformation of Switzerland by cultivating a cross-sectoral innovation ecosystem, running different capacity-building programmes and an open knowledge sharing platform. She co-founded Collective Transitions, an organization dedicated to building and fostering shared capacities for transformational shifts.

Godelieve Spaas
Weaver WorldEthicForum

By sharing yet unheard stories and walking untrodden paths, we allow interdependent systems to reveal themselves, to be interpreted and to become a platform for ethical decisions in everyday organizational reality. Godelieve Spaas is professor new economy at Avans university of applied science, co-founder of the Wire Group - Venturing for Impact, a board member of Herenboeren Nederland and Deputy Director of the Pari Center in Italy. She is a researcher, maker, performer and writer and engages with radical new economic practices and theories and proposes alternative economic narratives and entrepreneurial principles. Researching and creating new ways of entrepreneurial organizing in Europe and Africa deepened her insight into how to combine worlds that are often separated such as art, science, indigenous knowledge, nature and entrepreneurship. Her aim is to increase diversity in organizational and entrepreneurial models and realities with a view to the development of a fairer entrepreneurial space.
