One Planet believes that in order to help move forward an ever-advancing civilization, educational institutions should be at the for front in facilitating discourses and creating social spaces to contribute to the advancement of civilization. At any given moment, and in social spaces at different levels of community, there are a various  ongoing discourses concerned with many aspects of humanity’s wellbeing and progress: discourses on such subjects as the equality of women and men, public health, education, environment, to name but a few. One Planet students whether through their involvement in the life of the community, their efforts of social action, or in the course of their studies, occupations, or professional activities—strive to participate fruitfully in such discourses, learning with and from others and offering their personal insights.
