Today’s problems know no borders, and we need a global political force to deal with them. It’s as simple as it gets
That’s why we are building Atlas, the global political party in the making uniting people worldwide to create a freer, better and more equitable planet.
We will run for elections from India to Kenya, Italy to Costa Rica, and even challenge undemocratic processes at the UN. Accessing parliaments and governments will allow us to advance our political vision - the Philosophy of Unity - and bring about change worldwide!
Atlas' 24,000 supporters in over 134 countries will only stop once they succeed.

Since 2020, we have campaigned, organised protests and lobbying efforts to fight against authoritarianism, climate change, and inequities.
After years of grassroots activism, we are switching things up 🚀. On September 15th 2023, we announced that Atlas is becoming a global political party.
Watch out for our first General Assembly that will take place on September 15th, 2024, in Nairobi (Kenya) and online. Until then, we will ensure that our membership is genuinely diverse, build parties worldwide, and officially found Atlas with a lot of noise.
What we stand for
Through our political work, we advance the Philosophy of Unity.
The Philosophy of Unity is a revolutionary manifesto calling for humanity to unite beyond differences and work towards a fairer, freer, and better future.
A United society must be anchored within the fundamental principles of Freedom, Equity, and Well-being. We can only thrive as individuals, communities, and a planet when we all have access to freedoms, the resources and opportunities we need to flourish fairly.
To achieve our principles, three systemic reforms are needed. We must:
- Democratise wealth and power,
- Ensure equity among groups and
- Unite Beyond Borders.
We champion this political vision at all levels, from your local council to the United Nations.
Short term (1-3 years): A) establish sizable political parties in all continents, B) elect representatives at any level of governance, C) participate in the United Nations Secretary-General selection process
Medium-term (3-10 years): elect national-level representatives in all continents
Long-term (10+ years): affect national and global policy-making
What we have achieved
… as a political party, we are just getting started.
But as an advocacy organisation, we have done quite a bit. Here are some of the things we are the proudest of ⤵️. We have:

🚀 Reached more than 5 million people on social media & recruited +20,000 supporters, and organised hundreds of events, protests & actions across the world,
🚀 Built a coalition of leaders from 4 continents to counter authoritarianism, that included Joshua Wong, Juan Guaido, Veronica Tsapkala, and Audrey Tang,
🚀 Appeared in leading publications such as The New York Times, BBC, Vice, The Economist, Al Jazeera, The Independent, Euronews, Hong Kong Free Press, and TV stations. Gave a TED talk, which supported the further growth of the movement.
