The WorldEthicForum (WEFo) is an organisation dedicated to our common regenerative future. Part of the work is participatory action research (see, e.g. Bradbury et al. 2019, 2022). WEFo is a unique international global inquiry-based living lab that takes a multistakeholder, cross-sector, intergenerational, and long-term approach to foster healthy relationships, respect, and inclusion of all voices and forms of life as a norm (ecocentrism). It is based on the assumption that in order to do so, it requires restoring and rewiring our social and relational fabrics and how we relate and interact with one another. It is built on an in-depth inquiry into preconditions, social architecture and design process for co-creating a social field for a culture of care and kinship (Ritter et al., 2023).
The workshop explores the WEFo’s overall process design and work that enable collaborative actions on cross-sector and transdisciplinary themes and challenges.
KEYWORDS: ethical groundwork, decolonisation, reconciliation, stewardship of bio regions, intergenerational dialogue, responsible economy.
