To foster cross-cultural understanding and address shared challenges so to unite the world in a community beyond borders.
In partnership with secondary schools, universities, corporations, nonprofits, individuals and families, and public and private institutions all over the world, United Planet is unlocking the potential of every person as a global citizen and catalyst to create a more peaceful, cohesive, and sustainable world.
In today’s world, global challenges transcend borders. To address these challenges–poverty, global health, climate change, involuntary migrations–we need to work together as a global community. We are constructing the upper stories of a building in efforts to effect change without focusing on the foundation…the foundation necessary to solve these global challenges is in building stronger relationships and greater understanding across cultures.”–David Santulli, Founder and President, United Planet
