Our unsustainable way of living exposes humanity to great danger due to the damaging consequences that utter selfishness, unjust resource distribution, and overuse of natural resources have on society.
Opena International encourages humanity to fully blossom by leveraging technological development and new scientific discoveries.
We believe that is time to adjust the economy to how humanity and nature really work. With our work, we aim to foster and cherish personal and societal development.
Therefore, we support:
A society built around the way our minds work
Is man a wolf for man? Sociological and psychological studies have shown that humans tend to be altruistic, rather than selfish. There's no better joy than helping others in daily tasks, or working together on something meaningful, is there? In the end, goodwill is a stronger motivation for achieving innovation and excellence than extrinsic rewards (such as money).
a just distribution of resources, globally
Today's economic system does not effectively challenge social injustice. Inequality is divisive and socially corrosive, as it is connected to pressing social problems, such as low educational levels, infant mortality, crime, high teenage birthrates, widespread distrust, obesity, mental illness, and obstacles to social mobility. Think of the expense, the human cost of that. A different form of resource distribution is possible. If we avoid an unjust distribution of wealth, we suddenly have a handle on the psychosocial well-being of societies. And that's exhilarating.
Ecologically responsible circular economy
The current 'take-make-dispose' linear economy approach led us to an emerging resource crunch. To transition to a circular economy is the only way for our society to survive, and thereby the only way for us to prosper. There is a world of opportunity to re-design the way our economy works and we consume. In our economy lies an enormous potential waiting to be unlocked.
