The GHFP seeks to understand key concepts in peace, dialogue and human flourishing. By mapping out these conceptual landscapes always in terms of human-centred values, we hope to develop new ideas for cultivating a wider systemic transformation at many levels.
Because the transformations that I am referring to involve our ability to be truly conscious, … it is, in a way, spiritual, akin to an ascension of the human spirit. — Simon Xavier Guerrand-Hermès, Founder and Chairman
Our Healing projects explore an understanding of what constitutes healing and how healing might take place within communities torn by histories of violence and dehumanisation. Our projects in post-conflict societies, such as Lebanon, Rwanda, Colombia and more recently the Americas have helped illustrate some of the approaches that may be meaningful for restoring human dignity and communal harmony.
Our Human-Centred Education projects aim to explore practices that leaders, teachers, educators and parents can use as a basis for understanding what education ought to be in the 21st Century. At the heart of this is encouraging schools to develop themselves into caring learning communities, and to take a holistic approach to well-being.
The GHFP’s Community-Based Projects tend to focus on sustainable livelihood, identifying innovative approaches to the root causes of poverty and injustice, and stimulating entrepreneurial spirit to enable the human well-being and flourishing of all. We believe that shifting the lenses through which we perceive well-being and livelihood can help humanity to transform the way we are with each other on earth.
