One Solution Global

One Solution is working to solve large-scale global challenges by helping individuals, communities and systems to change from within. We believe that educating people about the mind so they can reconnect to their innate well-being, resilience and capacity for new ideas is the most efficient and sustainable solution to any problem.


Unhealthy minds innocently create problems in the world. However, people are born with healthy minds and an innate capacity to thrive and contribute to society. In our work, we’ve seen that it’s possible to reconnect people with their innate resilience and discover new ways of thinking that foster sustainable mental health and wellness.


Healthy minds equal a healthy world. It is easiest to prevent problems by establishing a solid foundation for health and well-being in society. Large-scale education about the mind and resilience can boost the overall mental health of the world and prevent social and global problems at the source.


The ability to dissolve old habits of thinking and tap into new ideas is the greatest asset of the human mind. Our capacity to innovate allows us to improve and even revolutionize the systems that organize our societies. Understanding our source of innovation is fundamental to creating a better world.

Our Priorities

Igniting the capacity for change on every level:

Grassroots and Community Change

The most powerful agent of change in any community is the minds of the people living in it. We provide educational programs, internships, and train-the-trainer programs to help families, and schools in at-risk communities.


Organizational Change

Every organization, big and small, is only doing as well as the people inside of it. We help your team radically improve their state of mind so your organization can reach its maximum potential of effectiveness and impact on the world.


Systemic Change

The systems that we build for our society are a reflection of our collective thoughts and ideas about how our societies should run. One Solution partners with other organizations and works to make these systems more effective.


Media and Arts

Media and arts are the most versatile and creative of our priorities because there are infinite kinds of creative expression that can influence and change peoples minds and countless ways to share them around the world.

Additional Note
Eirik Olsen, Co-Founder and Director, became fascinated by the relationship between the mind and human capability after his experience in the Norwegian military and deployment in the Middle East. He spent the next years working from this new understanding and founded NorthMind, a Scandinavian-based company working with individuals and leaders in addition to an Academy to train mentors of this understanding. Through the founding of NorthMind, Eirik came to the realization that this understanding could be applied to people across all fields, from individuals, to communities, and to the wider world. So, together with Mara Gleason, he then co-founded One Solution Global, whose sole purpose is to see if it’s possible to bring a single solution to solve the world’s most complex problems.
Stephanie Fox, Middle East Director, is a humanitarian professional and educator with 20 years of experience in international project management, education, and research with NGOs, the private sector, and the United Nations in Gaza. With expertise in conflict prevention and transformation, she is passionate about the potential for global peace via a simple understanding of the mind. She is the creator of A Curious World educational products, which unlock the innate resilience in children. Stephanie developed the UN’s first educational satellite channel in the Middle East, which is viewed in 20 countries in the region and provided emergency education to Syrian refugees. She enjoys working with people from all types of backgrounds, giving her the opportunity to point to what all humans have in common.
Dajohn White, Youth Leader and Co-Founder of Rebels for Peace, was born and raised in Southside Chicago, and believes he was put on this earth to improve the mindsets and well being of others. As the youth leader of Rebels for Peace, Dajohn focuses on strengthening the mindsets of the youth of Chicago and beyond to rebel against the common belief that retaliation is the way of dealing with conflict, and instead find better solutions to violence. Through Rebels for Peace, Dajohn has cultivated a movement for peace by working with all age groups from communities around the world.
