Since the second world war, there has been a drive by the UN and other intergovernmental organisations to harmonise the actions of nations and increase international cooperation, promote world peace, protect the global rights of citizens, deliver humanitarian aid and promote sustainable development and international law.
Red Sea work with governments and intergovernmental organisations, and align our mission with the United Nations Sustainable Development goals, finding and empowering leaders to reduce poverty and hunger, promoting good health and wellbeing, improving global education for all, eliminating inequality, harnessing affordable and clean energy, promoting economic growth, sustainable community, promoting peace and justice and work to care for our planet.
We partner by finding and empowering leaders for the United Nations agencies, government initiatives and ministries, working with the Intergovernmental partners in the Regions and Countries and Head Offices across the Globe. In a world with rising nationalism and geopolitical and economic challenges, we bring experience and understanding from within the system to help shape its future leadership and direction.
Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women’s empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.
