Wayne envisions a global cultural renaissance that will demonstrate the valuing of respect for human dignity as a sustainable means to produce the artifacts to symbolize the integration of these new behavioral values and norms. His aspiration for The CARITAS Project is to provide the research, knowledge, techniques, and resources that will bring this human-centered practice into the mainstream as a part of everyday life.
The CARITAS Project gets its inspiration from the word “caritas.” One of the oldest words in recorded language, it means nurturing, supporting and loving in Latin; charity in Greek; and generous giving in ancient Hebrew. The Project works to actively demonstrate the tangible benefits to be gained by developing and constructing social and built environments upon the cultural foundations of “caritas.”
