What is our goal? 

All the countries on their way to democracy have to fight hard with corruption. 
Millions of their citizens stand for justice and democratic values. However, powerful political and business barons actively oppose this movement. These processes are especially evident within the former soviet state and in Ukraine particularly. The transition to democracy cannot happen in developing countries without profound changes in the rest of the world. 

Kleptocrats from poorer countries acquire assets, real estate, and invest in the business of developed countries. So, venal practices penetrate into the financial system of the Western countries and infects the foundations of an open society. A vicious circle of dirty cash flows challenges the democracies of the entire planet. How can we build a zero corruption future together? 

Projects goals

– Unite the designers of the world and all the forces of goodwill in the fight against global negative challenges.
– Influence politicians and government agencies to address these issues
– Foster the growth of moral awareness and social cohesion.

SUBJECT CATEGORIES

Ecology and climatecrisisImminent adverse climate change raised millions of citizens to protect the planet from an inevitable ecological disaster which can only be prevented by changing the way of thinking.  
Social networks and new digital technologies have become a weapon both in the hands of modern knights of light and in the hands of dark figures of misinformation and lies.

(2)
Corruption as a threat to global security. People all over the planet feel insecure. We see a continuous standoff between truth and false information, autocracy and democracy, human rights and the right of power, the free world and closed societies. Dictators and criminal lords challenge the idea of a liberal democracy that has ensured relative stability and peace during the last 70 years. Sustainable peace and safety constructed of the ashes of great wars of the 20th century began to totter and demand changes. Corruption besides exhausting natural resources of the world’s poorest peoples crosses borders through dirty financial flows and poisons developed democratic nations. 
The army of lobbyists, lawyers, PR consultants, bankers and other Western experts becomes the middleman between criminal capital from kleptocratic societies and democratic societies. Corruption and organized crime are the threat to global security acting like radiation which

(3)
Digital reality and mental health. Digital corporations became sort of a state in the state without having to pay taxes, as their revenues are hidden offshore. 

Through financial institutions dirty kleptocratic capital gains access to information about the hidden fears and desires of people and create a new world of post-truth, lies and misinformation. This world bases itself upon fear, anger and greed; it offers simple solutions for complex problems; it creates enemies embodied in refugees and gentiles, and makes heroes out of criminals. The post-truth world calls white black and black — white.

Keywords: negativity, society, disease, degradation, limitedness, gadgets, system, standards, lie, cell, mutation, bots.
