what is ziba?

The word ziba is short for:
association for solidaric international brave aspirations

(yes, we know that doesn't make sense)

ZiBA is an non-governmental organisation founded in Sweden. 

ZiBA was created because we had a feeling that the world we live in is becoming more divided and hostile while more and more people are feeling hopeless and lonely.

We want to do this through different forms of spaces, platforms and communities where people can come together and feel welcome as they are. 

We live in a time where people seem to be drifting further and further apart, creating more conflicts and differences. We want to put the emphasis on where we are all equal instead of different. 

We believe that by first creating a common ground of acceptance and trust, we can move forward together to create the societal change we want to see.

Research shows that presence and trust between people are important ingredients for good health and happiness. Increased trust creates greater security between people - and secure people are more likely to find solutions rather than become defensive or conflictual. 

Let's create a more compassionate world, one where we see each other's potential.

Sounds all good, but what does that really mean?
