When you look at the history of civilization, you could say it’s ultimately a story of people struggling to live together- on a home called planet Earth. Through the years we’ve gotten better at it, with incredible gains in democracy, civil rights, and raising the standard of living for billions. Yet when we look into the future, we still have a ways to go. Ahead of us lies some of the most serious challenges we’ve ever faced- from extreme income inequality to the degradation of ecosystems on which we all depend.
At the same time, never before have we had better tools, resources and the collective will to come together as a species. The emergence of the internet, sustainable technologies, and a global networked economy are indicative of a new, common future possible for us. Ultimately, OpenDoor is an invitation to live better together as a human family- to reimagine our cities, buildings, and homes as places that take care of both people and the planet.
