Philia Overview

Caring Citizen

At the core of the Philia project is our belief that the Caring Citizen is fundamental to the health, vitality and well being of our neighbourhoods, communities, institutions and governments.

Universal Values

Caring citizens, their associations, organizations, corporations, institutions, systems and governments are informed inspired and guided by a set of core values or universal principles.

These include:

  • Hospitality
  • Forgiveness
  • Resilience
  • Reciprocity/Obligation
  • Trust
  • Friendship
  • Inclusion/Diversity
  • Love
  • Courage


A changing definition of citizen and reflection on universal values leads us to explore a number of themes including:

Art & Community

Ethics & Community

Contribution & Community

Social Service & Community

Time & Community
