The “One Humanity Institute” is to be located in Auschwitz-Oswiecim, Poland. It encompasses the vision of building a “City of Hope”, a destination where long or short-term visitors can experience the stark realities of the past alongside opportunities and models of transformation for a culture of sustainable peace and the uniting of humanity.
A One Humanity Institute Think Tank Summit took place from September 19 – 24, 2018. Dr. Nina Meyerhof and Domen Kocevar, who is also involved in the Co-Creating Europe project, brought together a group of 20 prominent people from many corners of the world, five of whom were Polish colleagues, to Oswiecim-Auschwitz.
The mission of the One Humanity Institute is to help create a future that embraces the universal values of peace, tolerance, dignity, freedom, equality and solidarity for all life. The purpose of the summit was to further formulate and ground this philosophy by focusing on the framework for content and specifics of transforming the buildings. The group held many perspectives coming from the fields of education, sustainability, government, media, and business. The Polish colleagues were helpful in understanding the local political context and the need for integration with the local community.
