Welcome to World Kindness Australia
World Kindness Australia is a registered Not For Profit and an executive member of the World Kindness Movement, the peak global kindness body. We served two consecutive terms as the global body’s Secretariat following a unanimous resolution by international delegates at the 9th General Assembly in London on the 3rd of September 2012. World Kindness Australia is not a governing body, it is a platform for national collaboration designed to encourage and support all sectors of our communities to engage in the global campaign for a kinder world. World Kindness Australia ’s membership base is not specifically for Kindness organisations as it seeks engagement with Cities, Government, Business, Education, NFP Community Groups, Peak Association Bodies and Individuals. Membership to World Kindness Australia is not based on members receiving or expecting benefits of membership, rather allowing others to contribute to provide a value add to the global campaign for a kinder world. World Kindness Australia has received recognition and support from Australia’s leaders and the international community. In 2014 World Kindness Australia was internationally recognised and officially endorsed as the nations peak national kindness body and in 2017 had the honour to successfully present the Australian Prime Minister’s Message in Seoul with the City of Gold Coast’s bid to be officially listed as the world’s first World Kindness City.

The Preamble to The Declaration Of Suport

Nelson Mandela held the unshakeable belief that South Africa would see an end to Apartheid despite being imprisoned for 27 years. Abraham Lincoln held the unshakable belief that “All Men Are Created Equal” despite the threat of civil war and dissention from within his own party. The Rev Martin Luther King Had a Dream, a dream to which he gave his life to. And Ghandi believed that peaceful protest would overcome brutal injustice. They all had one thing in common, they held lofty aspirations for positive change during a time of civil conflict fuelled by fear and where kindness rarely appeared on any agenda.
