Camberwell Community Building is an initiative inspired by the Baha’i Faith. Community building activities, much like the ones in Camberwell, take root in over 200 countries worldwide representing over 2,000 ethnic, linguistic and cultural groups. We work with friends from every cultural or religious background to give practical expression to a vision of world unity. All races, ages, gender and social classes come together to create a warm and authentic sense of community. The unity that must underpin a peaceful and just social order embraces diversity – oneness and diversity are complementary and inseparable. Acceptance of the concept of unity in diversity implies the development of a sense of world citizenship and a love for all of humanity. According to Baha’i teachings “The diversity in the human family should be the cause of love and harmony, as it is in music where many different notes blend together in the making of a perfect chord.”
At a time of change and uncertainty, humankind’s crucial need is to find a unifying vision of the nature of humanity and society. "Let your vision be world embracing. The learned and worldly-wise men of this age were to allow mankind to inhale the fragrance of fellowship and love, every understanding heart would apprehend the meaning of true liberty, and discover the secret of undisturbed peace and absolute composure. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens."
