Web of Good Work

The Visioneers Soaring Rainbow Eagle symbolizes our purpose... act with strength, courage and commitment to together launch the Virtual Expo Web of Good Work into a world that so needs the promotion of human nobility.

Our Mission

Our mission is to connect Visioneers with each other, building a global network of changemakers, showcasing the good-work projects and lifetime achievements of Visioneers around the world, and providing real-world mentorship and learning opportunities for Visioneers. We are building a Web of Good Work as a counter to the fog of negativity shrouding discourse on current global conditions and future prospects.

Desmond Berghofer and Gerri Schwartz

The Visioneers International Network Web of Good Work was founded by Desmond Berghofer Ph.D. and Geraldine Schwartz Ph.D. They are an energetic and creative team who have worked as partners for three decades, combining their talents to found and operate a number of business and non-profit organizations focused on leadership development, and especially on ethical leadership and the creative management of change, including the Institute for Ethical Leadership and the Vancouver Learning Centre, which has helped hundreds of young folks achieve their full educational potential.

They feel that our current precarious time that creates both danger and opportunity calls on us to rise to the challenge as a human community to do something magnificent for the present and the future, if we act together. They invite you to explore this website, and if you are inspired by what you see, to join them.

The vision of the Web of Good Work is inspired by a story told by Desmond Berghofer in the novel, The Visioneers: A Courage Story about Belief in the Future. In this fictional account, a band of enterprising people from many different countries, backgrounds and ages set out to engage people around the world to vision a future of planetary cooperation and peace. At the end of the story, the whole world has come together in an extraordinary virtual gathering (before the internet showed how it could be done) called the Congress of the Global Mind to tell each other about and to celebrate projects of good work inspired by the Visioneers.

Today, this project will make that fantasy real.
