Research forms the backbone of our network of organisations. Without research we cannot grow and understand everything that our world is about. With such a diverse membership from every corner of the world we find ourselves researching everything from the needs of people to the unknown. Research was the building blocks of OTI uniting the knowledge of various people to find solutions for a common problem.
Of what use is our knowledge if we do not share it with those around us? OTI and all of its subsidiaries, members, networks and staff focus most of our energy on education, allowing ourselves to learn more from each other and also for us to teach what we have learned to others.
Our youth are our future. Working with youth to gain their perspectives and to help them understand the world better is one of our priorities and obligations. In our time of difficulty it is often the youth that pay the price of our mistakes and suffer the effects of our bad judgment.
