The mission of Omega is to launch projects of service in chaotic times. Omega is a small core group of people and  an extended network of close partners and collaborators who explore, support and launch projects of service in chaotic times. We are designers, thinkers, practitioners, innovators, communicators and funders. We are adaptive and responsive. We work across disciplines and across the political spectrum. We try to think & act in new ways because the polycrisis demands that we adjust constantly to new challenges and opportunities.

We started in 2016, when we launched the Resilience Funders Network, six years before the polycrisis came to global public awareness. We launched the Omega Resilience Awards in 2022, funding emerging Global South leaders and North-South research organizations focused on the polycrisis. We’ve partnered with dozens of thought leaders and practitioners around the world in webinars, gatherings and initiatives designed to help us navigate the polycrisis. We constantly explore new ways to serve.


Hope is holding a creative tension between what is and what could and should be, each day doing something to narrow the distance between the two.
