FAQ


What is the origin of the name Perspectivity?
The name ‘Perspectivity’ stands for the art of suspending our prejudgments in problematic situations and first seeking the perspectives of all those involved. The last part of the word derives from ‘activity’, indicating that we are not only reflective but also action-oriented.

Can you give me an explanation of the Perspectivity logo?
The V in the logo represents a person who sees the world from a different perspective because he is standing on his hands. Perhaps we should all make a (proverbial) handstand every now and then and approach problems from a different angle.

How is the Perspectivity Network funded?
The foundation’s starting capital was provided by the founder. The Perspectivity Foundation relies on donations from communities, organisations and individuals that support our ideas. Income is now also generated by Perspectivity Game sessions. 

Can I join the Perspectivity Network?
Yes, you can. We want to spread Perspectivity’s ideas by gradually expanding our network of committed individuals.
