Desmond & Geraldine

Desmond Berghofer and Gerri Schwartz

The Visioneers International Network Web of Good Work was founded by Desmond Berghofer, PhD and Geraldine Schwartz, PhD. 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 visioneering project is truly world transforming in potentiality…Through the medium of an engrossing novel, you have given us a fantastic tool”

Willis Harman, President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences

The Novel

The Visioneers: A Courage Story About Belief in the Future

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.

Read the book yourself in print or digital form.

Listen to the audio theatre, available as a free download when you join.

Why are we doing this now? In the 21st century, humanity has reached a critical turning point in the history of life on Earth:

Human Impact

The cumulative impact of human activity on the life support systems of the planet now transcends the ability of national governments to manage.

Global Citizens

People are called upon to see themselves not just as citizens of nation states, but as global citizens responsible to act together to take care of the Earth.

We are living in the People’s Time

Today millions of concerned citizens are not waiting for their governments to act. They are taking the future into their own hands to improve prospects for coming generations.

Who are we? We are the Visioneers, people who seek make a difference by using their creative imaginations to envision a preferred future, and then act to transform that vision into reality in thousands of wonderful ways.

A Quality Human Future

A quality human future is in the hands of the next few generations. Visioneers recognize that humanity’s future will be determined by the ability of ordinary people to act together for the common good.

 

Projects of Good Work

Visioneers embrace the values of cooperation, empathy and positive anticipationto act in both big and small ways, which as they are showcased on the Virtual Expo are demonstrations of human nobility.

Wherever conditions of neglect, indifference, or intolerance are found, 
or where acts of violence are perpetrated on innocent populations...

The Veterans Transition Program is a group-based program developed by psychologists and medical experts at the University of British Columbia in Canada to help men and women returning from military service transition to productive civilian life. The veterans prefer an environment in which they can receive support and understanding from others "who have been there.” This support is provided through counselling interventions offered in a confidential group format with other military personnel. Developed by Dr. Marvin Westwood at the University of British Columbia (See Marvin Westwood in Lifetime Achievement Awards), the program offers group-based life review and therapeutic enactment interventions. Veterans are encouraged to bring the key members of their family to a group session. To date, over 700 veterans have participated and reported benefits. The program is now delivered by the national Veterans Transition Network with research and evaluation still at the University of British Columbia. The Veterans Transition program is a valuable, professional and compassionate service to veterans who have given so much for their country.
