We believe that a focus on urban sustainability solutions can
preserve natural resources, promote social inclusion & quality of life, preserve local, regional ecosystems & culture, create meaningful jobs and decouple living standards from environmental resource use.
AREAS OF FOCUS
ONE WITH EARTH (OWE) PROMOTES URBAN SUSTAINABILITY.
We are committed to finding solutions that empower every individual to exercise the option to live sustainably.
We do this by supporting and developing innovative, sustainable business models that integrate the triple bottom line (PEOPLE PLANET PROFIT).
In alignment with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, we believe that each individual OWE’s it to themselves, their communities and our planet to be responsible and accountable for their actions.
Over 50% of the world’s population currently lives in urban milieus.
This is expected to increase to 70% by 2050! Most global sustainability issues stem from urban production, consumption, and behavioural patterns. It’s no coincidence that the growing environmental & social crises are correlated to growing urban populations.
By creating and supporting solutions that promote urban sustainability, OWE hopes to create change from the root of the issue. And more importantly, change mindsets that percolate into every aspect of our urban lifestyles.
who we support
We support social enterprises, businesses with sustainable missions & NGOs!
We understand that having a good idea is often not enough. Bringing this idea to life and making it truly sustainable can seem very daunting. One With Earth provides a helping hand to bring your vision to life.
Depending on the nature of the Enterprise, One With Earth offers partnerships as well as a gamut of services offerings that help bring these projects from idea to reality.
HOW we support
Partnership & Investments
OWE offers a partnership model to businesses (with sustainable missions) and social enterprises in need of skill sets under the umbrella of business development and business modelling.
OWE offers investments for start-up stage businesses/social enterprises in need of funding for proof of concept or prototyping phase.
TO EMPOWER INDIVIDUALS TO CREATE THE SMALLEST ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT POSSIBLE.
As a principle, empathy is the ability to problem solve by walking in the shoes of individuals outside of one’s immediate periphery. It also means to truly care about another, and being able to transcend differences of geographic boundaries & cultures
