Why Community? NAN's Perspective:

  • Every human being yearns to find a meaningful place in their community, and to be admired and respected for who they really are
  • Only in community, through knowing the dreams, needs and capacities of the whole community, can individuals and groups know the larger meaning and worth of what they do. Only in this way can they choose to act in support of one another and the whole
  • Community brings people together to discover their most profound shared dreams and aspirations that can unleash the highest potential of its individual members
  • Community by articulating a shared vision points youth and adults towards meaningful and rewarding action that supports community and planetary values
  • Direct democratic participation in functional, local communities worldwide can revitalize representative democracy and bring diverse peoples and cultures into harmony with one another and the planet
