The One Earth Future (OEF) Foundation is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization founded in 2007 by a business entrepreneur. We began operations in 2008 with a vision of developing effective, multi-stakeholder systems of governance to achieve a world beyond war – hence our tagline, "Peace Through Governance."
The OEF Model of Operations
As an operating foundation, OEF uses a ‘Think and Do Tank’ model. This means we rely upon our Think Tank components to envision improved governance structures and policy options, analyze and document the performance of existing governance institutions and policies, and provide intellectual support to the field operations of our ‘Do Tank’ side. The active field projects apply our Think Tank outputs to existing governance failures - particularly those causing threats to peace and security - and the results of these programs in turn inform the direction and methods of our global governance research.
