About WorldShift

"WorldShift" is a global movement began in September 2009 by an emergency proposal from Club of Budapest in response to global financial, economical and environmental crisis to shift the world to a sustainable one.

Based on the transformation of awareness and behavior at the individual level, beyond national and ethnic barriers, and cuts across barriers of politics and business leadership, civil sectors and media, we aim to create a better future by making "WorldShift" declaration.

WorldShift Declaration

Are you ready to declare your WorldShift?

WorldShift is a social movement by answering a question: "What kind of world do you want?"

Social changes will emerge as your own, by filling out your own desired world onto "WorldShift Declaration Logo" and by declaring how you will "shift the world".

What's New



In order to realize a global shift to better societies, it is important not to take the issues of "economy", "society", and "ecosystem" as problems of only that area, but to exercise wisdom and change holistically.

As a place to gather and disseminate knowledge of these various areas, we started the online magazine "WorldShift MAGAZINE".

WorldShift Network Japan will continue to move toward realizing a peaceful and sustainable better world in cooperation with various media, companies and organizations.
