About

ConCERNed for Humanity is a  club of people working at CERN inspired by Bertrand Russel‘s quote :

All who are not lunatics are agreed about certain things. That it is better to be alive than dead, better to be adequately fed than starved, better to be free than a slave. Many people desire those things only for themselves and their friends; they are quite content that their enemies should suffer. These people can only be refuted by science: Humankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy.”

The goals of the group are to use (“our”) scientific method to make us and others aware of the world’s problems and to

  • collect facts and discuss them with others: inside and outside of CERN

  • develop expertise on particular areas of interest

  • (if asked) provide scientific facts for groups/movements outside CERN

  • show that we as CERN–people are also responsible citizens.

  • object to  brainwashing by politicians and the media.

All of this  following Albert Einstein’s view:
“The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.”
