MULTIDISCIPLINARY THINKING

IVUnited is a multidisciplinary organization, exploring many different directions. This means that every step of the way we embrace practices, methodologies and projects that fit together in order to create a holistic result. 
This rich approach makes our work interesting every day, but it also brings many challenges our way. We do our best in order to uphold our standards, our beliefs and our values but we can always do better.
Listed below, you will find our most precious values and all the views we live by. If you see ways in which we can improve, we encourage you to reach out to us. What helps us most is when our community participates in what we do or finds ways to suggest new tools and solutions that could bring us closer to our ideals in everything we do.

BIOMIMICRY

For our organization, biomimicry is a fundamental framework. In everything we do, we aspire to approach problem-solving through first principles.
Nature and physics are the ultimate sources of logic that serve to inspire humanity beyond the capacity of any culture or leadership. Only by linking our creation to nature can we transform our nations into truly regenerative and symbiotic ecosystems.

FUTURES LITERACY

We are creating pieces of future by supporting projects and groups that are making a difference. Beyond technological solutions, it is through communities that we see the future. It is important to us that more people think of the future and learn to understand what is unfolding in order to contribute and gain hope.

DESIGN THINKING

We apply to humanitarian fields and philanthropy the kind of development frameworks that have given corporations their power. We believe that organizations and non-profit initiatives can be more powerful beacons for society if we manage to improve the way we design change at scale.
