We want to live in a world where all people can live free and dignified lives, where any person who wants to help another can do so, and where no opportunities for action and collaboration are missed or wasted. That’s the vision, the ultimate goal. To get closer to it, we believe that:

  • All over the world there are many people who share similar values, dreams, and challenges.
  • With all the tools we have now, we can communicate like never before.
  • If all of us had more opportunities to connect and work together, online and face-to-face, in neighborhoods, villages, schools, and workplaces, the world would be a different place.
  • How different? We don’t know, but together we can find out.

More specifically: What would make it easier for more people to get involved in your community? What missed opportunities for action and collaboration do you see around you? How can you address some of them now? What are the challenges? How do we reach more people and organizations? R.S.V.P
