In this manner, we want to encourage the generations of the future to bring their ideas to life, to think big, and to be the change they want to see in the world.

The ever growing network OFoundation offers has become the backbone on which we can build to develop projects, organise events, raise money, gather information, and follow the most recent developments in the field. We believe that creating an enterprise where generations succeed each other and in which each one adds their own colour into the mix, can create a boost towards a sustainable and responsible economy.
