FAQs

 

What does the name ‘Vision21’ mean?

Vision21 reflects our vision of Pakistan as a human state in the 21st century. The vision of new global order based on Human values and Human aspirations, which are not seen in the light of pure economics but more through the prism of Human happiness, contentment and Life fulfillment. A state where the concept of ‘Homo Humanicus’ is replaced with the concept of ‘Homo economicus’…Where humans are not seen as rational and narrowly self interested actors caught in the drama of relentless evolutionary and market forces…and where human kindness can be made into an immense positive force for generating not only economic progress but for bringing peace, prosperity and opportunities for fulfillment of an individual human life.

 

Who funds Vision21?

V21 is a self funded organization and will continue to be so until such time it becomes self sustaining. We do not want anyone else’s money and do not want to be forced to carry anyone else’s agenda unless we share the common goals of the betterment of the people of Pakistan.

 

Who can join Vision21?

Vision21 is open to all for their involvement regardless of race, colour, sex and origin. The only criteria are exuberance, innovative spirit, willingness and ability to achieve something for the good of Pakistan
