About us: Values


New Humanity’s values and activities are based on the spirit of the focolari Movement, founded by Chiara Lubich in 1943 in Trento (Italy).


She is UNESCO prizewinner in 1996 for Peace and Education and she is Council of Europe Prizewinner in 1998 for Human Rights.


Members of Focolari Movement come from 182 different countries and belong to different cultures, religions, ethnic groups and traditions.


They are engaged in building relationships based on mutual respect, dialogue and forms of active collaboration between persons, social groups, peoples and institutions, in a vision of civil and social life inspired by universal fraternity (as proclaimed by the article n. 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)  and where everybody is creator and citizen of a united world.
