“One world one future” is an exhibition project that was initiated by the community of The Global Experience in 2009. The idea for the project emerged from one of our discussions about issues of sustainable development. During our meetings, we were examining certain issues that we often find in our home countries, and we were intrigued by their possible future worldwide impact. One World One Future was published as an exhibition in the University of Silesia, Katowice in December 2009.
