Break The Divide

Break The Divide is an international non-profit organisation that connects youth worldwide through video calls and other forms of media to learn about topics of interest and act on issues facing communities, with specific focus on climate action, mental health and advocacy. Based on principles of environmentalism, sustainability, and reconciliation, Break The Divide focuses on fostering empathy and understanding to inspire action projects in communities. The organisations’s patent framework “apathy to empathy to action” seeks to build ways in which young people can connect and learn from one another in an increasingly polarized world, allowing them to build empathy for realities that they have never faced, and empowering them to transform that empathy into concrete actions that advance the creation of harmonious and abundant futures. Alongside its partners, Break The Divide hosts dialogues and produces reports, highlighting perspectives often unheard and misrepresented. With its commitment, the organisations contributes to the Inner and the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations’ (UN) 2030 Agenda.
