Globalization seems to have made the world a smaller place; at the same time there is a growing demand for space and the fear of losing vital resources is increasing. Many people perceive globalization as a global, more or less openly conducted competition at all levels of society. There is, however, also a different way. Globalization can also have positive effects. Global communication networks, worldwide trade and transport routes offer the possibility for more and more people to participate in global knowledge and prosperity. The way HOW this is achieved is the central question and a challenge to those who control the assets.
The international ONE WORLD WARD (OWA) honors people and their projects that make the world a better place; dedicated people who give positive and innovative examples of globalization - people who make the future worth living
