The nature of of Bahá’í social and economic development

In November 26, 2012 the Office of Social and Economic Development at the Bahá’í World Centre described the nature of Bahá’í social and economic development

Bahá’í activity in the field of social and economic development seeks to promote the wellbeing of people of all walks of life, whatever their beliefs or background. It represents the efforts of the Bahá’í community to effect constructive social change, as it learns to apply the teachings of the Faith, together with knowledge accumulated in different fields of human endeavour, to social reality. Its purpose is neither to proclaim the Cause nor to serve as a vehicle for conversion.
