About us.


The nonprofit association One Humanity 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.

The association is independent and not religiously or politically affiliated with any organisation.

To achieve these goals the association develops public explorations that shall be integrated into a travelling exhibition. Special attention is paid to the inclusion of the broadest possible audience.
