A common thread that links people across cultures and continents is the hope for a world where every person will flourish. The world we inhabit falls far short of that dream at every level. In the sphere of work to take the most relevant example we are all too aware that the mechanisms available have limited success in generating opportunities for fruitful living that take best advantage of capabilities and potential of each of us wherever we might be. In short the efforts for which we are rewarded are a very unsatisfactory signalling mechanism for the areas where those efforts might to be directed in a better world. Here at teleologica we seek to set apart a proportion of our work for activities that focus on what some term the common good. In this section you will find examples of our not for profit activity over the years.
