Über uns - about us - à propos de nous

World citizenship (2001)

Die Betreiber dieser Website sind nicht nur Weltbürger, sondern darüber hinaus auch Weltföderalisten und Europäische Föderalisten. Seit Jahrzehnten sind sie deshalb Mitglied in der Union Europäischer Föderalisten (UEF) sowie der EUROPA-UNION Deutschland und damit auch Mitglied beim World Federalist Movement, das nach einer Trennung der Föderalisten in den Jahren 1947 bis 2004 nunmehr der Dachverband der Europäischen Föderalisten ist.

Nicht jeder Mensch möchte sich selber in Vereinen oder Organisationen einbinden und dadurch sein Engagement für eine bestimmte Sache kundtun und diese unterstützen. Noch weniger Mitbürger möchten oder können sich aktiv in die Verbandsarbeit einbringen. Andere sind bereits so in Vereinen oder Verbänden eingebunden, dass sie keine Zeit mehr finden, sich darüber hinaus zu engagieren.

Für alle diese Bürger soll diese Website eine erste Anlaufstelle sein, um sich kostenfrei und ohne ein darüber hinaus gehendes Engagement zu der Idee „einer Welt“ zu bekennen.

Wenn Sie sich selber als Weltbürger, Kosmopolit oder gar als Weltföderalist sehen, dann lassen Sie es den Seitenbetreiber wissen, und er trägt Sie mit Namen und ggf. auch einem Hyperlink auf Ihre eigene Website ein.

Selbstverständlich können sich auch juristische Personen zu der Idee einer Weltbürgerschaft bekennen und dadurch dokumentieren, dass sie als Verein, Organisation oder Unternehmen „global“ denken, handeln und agieren.

The operators of this website are not only world citizens, but also World Federalists and European Federalists. For decades, they have been members of the Union of European Federalists (UEF) as well as of the EUROPA-UNION Germany and thus also a member of the World Federalist Movement, which after a separation of the Federalists in the years 1947 to 2004 is now the umbrella organization of the European Federalists.

Not every person wants to involve themselves in clubs or organizations and thereby announce and support their commitment to a particular cause. Even fewer citizens want or can actively contribute to the association's work. Others are already involved in clubs or associations so that they can not find time to get involved beyond that.

For all these citizens, this website should be a first point of contact, to commit themselves to the idea of ​​"one world" free of charge and without any further commitment.

If you see yourself as a world citizen, a cosmopolitan or even as a World Federalist, then let the site operators know and they will enter your name and, if wanted, a hyperlink on your own website.

Of course, legal persons can also profess the idea of ​​global citizenship and thus document that they think, and act "globally" as a club, organization or company.

Les opérateurs de ce site web ne sont pas seulement des citoyens du monde, mais aussi des fédéralistes mondiaux et des fédéralistes européens. Depuis des décennies, ils sont donc membres de l’Union des Fédéralistes Européens (UEF) ainsi que de l' EUROPA-UNION en Allemagne. Par conséquent du Mouvement fédéraliste mondial, qui, après une séparation des fédéralistes dans les années 1947 à 2004, est maintenant l'organisation faîtière des fédéralistes européens.

Tout le monde ne veut pas s'intégrer dans des associations ou des organisations et exprimer ainsi son engagement pour une certaine cause et la soutenir. Encore moins de citoyens veulent ou peuvent participer activement aux travaux de l'association. D'autres sont déjà tellement intégrés dans des associations ou des fédérations qu'ils ne trouvent plus le temps de s'engager au-delà.

Pour tous ces citoyens, ce site Web doit être un lieu de première approche, afin de se confesser gratuitement et sans engagement allant au-delà de l'idée d'un monde unique .

Si vous vous considérez comme un citoyen du monde, un cosmopolite ou même un fédéraliste mondial, faites-le savoir à l'exploitant du site et il vous enregistrera avec votre nom et éventuellement un hyperlien vers votre propre site Web.

Bien entendu, les personnes morales peuvent aussi se confesser à l'idée d'une citoyenneté mondiale et documenter ainsi, qu'elles pensent, agissent et agissent "globalement" comme association, organisation ou entreprise.
