we have a problem

The limits of a fragmented world.

"Humankind today — according to Y. N. Harari on The Economist — faces three common problems that make a mockery of all national borders, and that can only be solved through global cooperation. These are nuclear war, climate change and technological disruption. You cannot build a wall against nuclear winter or against global warming, and no nation can regulate artificial intelligence (AI) or bioengineering single-handedly".

The opportunity

Borderless services for our global community.

OneWorld is committed to accelerating the creation of a global human identity, promoting multi-cultural empathy, and building peace. How we do it? By providing world citizens with global, multi-cultural, borderless services.

Support of global opportunities

OneWorld invests in the Institute for Global Priorities (Oxford University) and other research centres that are scoping global opportunities for better economical and social development.

Reduction of global inequality

At a global scale, there’s as much inequality between the different countries as between the different citizens within a single country. OneWorld is committed to reducing the gap between the richest and the poorest of the world through redistributive plans - similarly to the welfare systems put in place by the majority of democratic governments.

Reduction of poverty

Poverty has a huge cost for society: not only the human cost, but also the missed tax contribution, and the cost of care institutions (from social housing, to psychological support). Initiatives to reduce poverty - studies show - would easily repay themselves. OneWorld researches and supports the most effective initiatives to quit poverty.

A trust-based tax for global citizens

A fragmented world reduces global wealth, boosts inequalities, and poses existential risks for our own survival.

OneWorld aims to spread a global cultural identity by providing a range of social services (from education to development) on a global basis, in exchange for a voluntary, trust-based 3% tax.

About this project.

Divisive sentiments seem to be on a rise – think about Brexit, anti-immigration concerns, the Wall on the Mexican border. This regionalism not only may reduce growth in the long run: it also hampers the global cooperation we need for facing some of the current greatest problems — nuclear warfare threats, global warming, safe AI, internal tax frauds just to name a few. 

Our actions (consumptions, emissions, political choices, …) have an impact on everyone else on the planet — and yet, we struggle to feel a global identity. Organizations like the European Union or the United Nations are contributing to the creation of this global identity, but at times they are perceived as heavy, expensive, top-down bureaucratic machines, too far away from the concrete needs of people.

Against the current trends, this project tries to show some of the visible benefits of global cooperation. 

“Educating people to be open to the other person — I think that’s the challenge of the twenty-first century.”  — Tony Blair
