The One Humanity association aims to promote tolerance and respect, as well as to encourage a dialogue about a sustainable future.

The promotion of respect for other people, cultures and the environment, and above all the promotion of self-reflection, are the association's goals. This includes reflecting on one's own values, assumptions, narratives, biases, beliefs and traditions.
