Everyone takes part in glocal action

Climate change, ethnic wars, religious conflicts, energy crisis, wealth disparity…

Our world is facing various crucial issues that transcend borders. These issues influence everyone on the planet, but unfortunately none of us can resolve them on our own. Especially in Hong Kong, we seem to shut ourselves off from global issues beyond economic discussions. Some feel unconcerned and do not bother to get involved, while some think individual power is so limited that their efforts are in vain. Consequently, we become indifferent and apathetic towards our surroundings and gradually respond to our problems with either sarcasm or despair. Sometimes, we just wish to leave those big issues to other, more powerful entities, and isolate ourselves from such a chaotic world.

Isolating ourselves is the crux of the problem

VolTra believes that real changes are not brought about by great things done by a few, but by all the small things done persistently by every one of us towards a common goal. This requires a change of mentality from ‘me’ to ‘we’ from global citizens who are willing to stir changes from the bottom and work their way up step by step. VolTra cares about local issues as well as global trends because we believe that in order to have a better world for ourselves, we have to make the world better for others. There is only one world for us which is a world shared by us.
