NOW! tackles world issues that impact an important part of the population and greatly benefit from being solved in a transnational manner. NOW! believes that global solutions in the following three areas are dearly needed:
- New Economy (e.g., fiscal justice, poverty, technology, space exploration),
- Our planet (e.g., climate change, resource management, migration, nuclear proliferation), and
- World democracy (e.g., democracy, rights, global governance, nationalism, and populism).
Throughout its battles, NOW! is anchored and driven by the defense and promotion of the following five cardinal values: democracy, individual freedom, free, fair & sustainable market economy, human rights, and ecologism.
