Our Vision

We believe that:

When we understand each other's perspectives, our lives can be transformed and enriched.

 

Our VISION of OWW 2015 is of:

People working together to build a just, peaceful and sustainable world. 

 

 MISSION - What we want to do:

In our interdependent world, what each of us does affects all others and the ecosystem that sustains us.  We want to build a network of a co-operating individuals and organisations to provide opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to come together to:

  • acknowledge our interdependence;

  • learn about global justice, spread that learning and use it to

  • take action to increase equality, justice and sustainability, locally and globally.   

 

AIMS –  How we want to do it:

  • establish OWW as a nationally recognised annual event during which organisations hold local events on global issues which involve adults, families and children;
  • build on OWW’s existing work which involves faith, black minority ethnic and diaspora communities and engage the next generation of activists developing new social media approaches;
  • take a new direction in developing partnerships between OWW and other national organisations to: 
    • encourage all our local supporters to work together to use One World Week as an opportunity to deepen understanding of global issues in order to take approriate action;
    • use the OWW website to draw attention throughout the year to partners' campaigns that relate to the OWW theme;
  • promote, strengthen, and encourage local OWW events to:
    • reach out to new audience;
    • increase the effectiveness of OWW as a week for information sharing, learning and action for global justice at a grass roots level.

Call For Climate Action

For the love of each other, this spring, we are standing with over 100 organisations to call for climate action for the sake of all the things that matter most.

For the love of the food on our plates. For the love of our global neighbours. For the Love of Somerset, the Arctic and the Great Barrier Reef. For the love of country walks and Britain's beautiful seasons.

For the love of all the things we care about, we're taking climate change seriously. And we're not alone.

It’s time to stand up, for the love of each other, and demand action.

Will you share what you love? (www.fortheloveof.org.uk)
