Issues Without Borders is a youth organisation that focuses on human rights and encourages and empowers individuals to take action. IWB was founded late 2013 and is currently in the process of engaging members and supporters.
As an advocate of human rights and legal equality for all, the mission of IWB is to offer an online platform that empowers its users to take on personal and societal injustices and supports them in their actions.
For those in need of more information, insight or confidence to take action IWB offers an online information portal and network that supports its users to participate as active citizens. IWB aims to provide serious and crosscutting information, based on the knowledge and experience of its users. In order to achieve this, users are encouraged to produce their own research and bring original solutions to issues around the world.
The vision of IWB is to be an online platform for discussion and learning that enables its users to think outside the box and work towards self-development. IWB believes that independent, individual and inventive thinking is indispensable for any society to be free from inequality and human rights violations.
IWB constantly strives to break down traditional frames and constraints by encouraging its users to directly contribute, share and discuss their knowledge, experiences and insights. The organisation’s goal is to make meaningful contribution to forming a societal mind-set which is independent, open minded, generous and has the courage to question its beliefs. The organisation works towards this vision on the basis of our four core values:
- independence and freedom in thought and action,
- respect for diversity of cultures and different points of view,
- a fair and objective attitude towards all issues, and
- promoting real and effective action in our societies.
