Changing systems and cultivating change makers
WHAT WE DO
After years of experience in social change, we know that our systems are broken. Privilege and self-interest have left us with the greatest inequalities our societies have ever faced. Divisive ideologies have replaced the peaceful promise of a globalised planet. The lack of accountability for unjust actions is destroying our natural world and people’s lives.
In 2017 we developed the Justice Based Approach that would become the heart of everything we do as well as a lens to support others in their journey towards creating a new world.
Our experience has convinced us that alternative models exist to transform our world. These solutions are not found in the status quo. They are found in the people, organisations and movements with the courage and agency to address tough questions. They are emerging as powerful alternatives at the edge of society as people come together to make change happen.
We partner with change makers to transform our broken systems with alternative models for global justice. We work to shift the current power imbalance so that people are leading the changes in their own lives. When this happens, everyday life becomes activism, helping to ensure that power is held accountable.
We are joining a movement that has already started, standing together on the edge of change. That is what our work is all about.

The root causes of injustice are complex and entrenched. Surface solutions are part of the problem. We tackle the root causes of injustice through five interconnected approaches that define everything we do. Together, these five areas make up the Justice Based Approach - developed by United Edge to drive forward the movement towards a safer, fairer and more sustainable future.
Our approaches to social change are failing, but alternative models exist to solve complex problems.
Our actions affect others everyday in ways we don’t realize, and the world is waiting for us to wake up.
