Committed to Peace - the forumZFD Mission Statement
During the last two decades, the Forum Civil Peace Service (Forum Ziviler Friedensdienst e. V. – forumZFD), has become a growing international peace organisation. A substantial number of member organisations, individual members and sponsors support our work. Dozens of people are employed by us. Our teams of civil peace experts are deployed in various parts of the world.
What changes have we all undergone in recent years? Are we still following the same goals as in the beginning? What motivates us and which principles guide us in our work at home and abroad? A shared assessment of these questions throughout the year 2012 has led to the adoption of this Mission Statement, reflecting our common perception of the forumZFD internally and externally. It describes who we are as an organisation – and what we want to become.
The wording of this Mission Statement is the result of many lively debates amongst members, trustees and employees. It is a conclusion and a prelude in one: The forumZFD will continue to develop – and so will this Mission Statement.
