A leading Dutch humanitarian, Fred Matser, is the founder & chairman of the Fred Foundation. He is active in social and ecological transformation with principles based on inspiring co-creativity, self-sufficiency, empowerment, inspiration and harmony.
Over the past 35 YRS Fred transformed from business icon to spiritual pilgrim, after an unusual and overwhelming experience, humbly contributing to the world for the greater good.
Founder, and co-founder, of a wide range of charitable foundations that span the fields of health, environment, nature conservation, peace and global transformation.
His book, Beyond Us: A Humanitarian’s Perspective On Our Values, Beliefs And Way Of Life: a penetrating collection of interrelated essays that pin down, magnify and mirror back to us our most dysfunctional yet UN-examined ways of thinking, living and relating to each other in the early 21st century - January 2021
The book assesses our situation from a neutral vantage point outside the cultural echo chamber of values, opinions and beliefs in which most of us find ourselves immersed. In doing so, it reveals what most of us can’t see. It confronts us with unpleasant truths about ourselves, the acknowledgment of which is imperative if we are to heal and improve our lives. The book also points to sane ways forward, and the appropriateness of these ways become self-evident once they are elucidated.
