We Believe: An Overview of OEF's Beliefs


At One Earth Future we believe that solving complex problems facing humanity calls for a fundamentally different way of working together. Rather than institutions working to achieve mandates, sustainable peace requires a global system of networks working to solve problems.

Because complex problems can only be solved by adaptive organizations, One Earth Future is structured as an incubator of peacebuilding programs. Each program works for sustainable solutions to a specific problem, while gathering and sharing lessons about cooperative governance more broadly.

Whether we are supporting grassroots coalitions in Colombia, connecting Somali businesses to lenders abroad, or working toward cooperative solutions to maritime insecurity worldwide, One Earth Future will remain focused on its vision of sustainable peace through cooperative governance.
