Launch of our partnership with Expedismart

Planting a tree while sending a package? This is what Expedismart is offering in collaboration with OneAction!

Our friends at Expedismart, a parcel shipping company based in Geneva and wishing to limit its environmental impact, are now offering the possibility to their clients to donate 1 CHF on each parcel shipped. This donation will automatically be doubled by Expedismart in order to plant a tree within the context of OneAction's reforestation project in Ecuador.

We look forward to this new long term partnership that will contribute to multiplying the restoration of abandoned farmlands in one of the ten most biodiverse ecosystems in the world!

Great success for Gabriela Montero's concert at the Victoria Hall!

The first joint adventure of OneAction and Karuna-Shechen, culminating in Gabriela Montero's concert at the Victoria Hall last Sunday, was a great success! In front of nearly 1,000 people, the Venezuelan pianist passionately shared her immense talent as an interpreter. She then delighted the audience with her improvisations, as well as the sudden hilarious entrance of the suprise guest and brilliant violinist Aleksey Igudesman. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this wonderful achievement! See you next year! Discover below a video of the concert...
