"Our live TV show from the Copenhagen Climate summit wouldn't have been possible without OneWorld's webcasting service. They are an extremely capable team able to pull off miracles without tonnes of expensive equipment or months of planning. They thought through the plan carefully, made sure our expectations were in line and then delivered far more than we could have hoped for. Because they're doing it because they believe in the vision, they go the extra mile... I don't think I've ever seen a live broadcast team work so hard. I've worked with broadcast units of hundreds of people and trucks the size of houses who were nowhere near as good."
Lizzie Gillett, Age of Stupid
"It's hard to think or an organisation which inspires such affection as OneWorld... you open the world to us through all these extraordinary technological innovations, and you remind us that there is a world out there that we want to be part of and speak to... [but] the technology doesn't matter, the star-dust doesn't matter, the communications don't matter - unless there are values underpining it, and the thing that i've always been so impressed by... is that that you are absolutely commited to social justice, to equality, to participation - whether it is in poverty reductuion, or in rights, or in HIV/AIDs, or in democratisation, or now in climate change... it's about carrying those values.
Simon Maxwell, Overseas Development Institute (ODI)
"Local observers are quite experienced in Senegal, and through the application of the unique technology that OneWorld has developed they’ve been able to expand and enhance their observation efforts, which probably was pivotal in the case of Senegal’s presidential election... All around it was an amazing project, done in very quick measure, and with great success."
Michael Henning, USAID
"It is really difficult to think of other organisations we have supported, which have so lived up to the promise and the vision which OneWorld has. A great deal of its success has been founded, on being genuinely a leader in the technology - and that is not something that BT says lightly"

"We saw civil society activists monitor more than 11,000 polling stations, texting vote counts and reports of irregularities to an independent centre in Dakar. We saw perhaps the most sophisticated monitoring program ever deployed in Africa or anywhere else. We saw democracy reaffirmed. We saw Senegal’s traditions preserved. And in the end, we saw a peaceful transfer of power."
Hillary Clinton, US Dept of State
"I want to say a big THANK YOU to the amazing OneWorld people who are working so hard to get the Situation Room up and running. Your professionalism, positive spirit and great work are all much appreciated... National Elections Watch made an excellent choice when they chose to work with OneWorld!"
Susan Barclay, Search for Common Ground
“By webcasting our conference from Dhaka we were able to engage partners and stakeholders from around the world both in real time and through the archive. This made our event much “bigger” than what we could accomplish in the conference hall alone and truly engaged a global audience. OneWorld Webcasting provided an excellent service that was technologically top notch and helped us far exceed our goal ...Using a professionally managed webcasting service has significant advantages over trying to ‘do-it-yourself’ in terms of the quality and freeing meeting organizers for other tasks... Airfare staff savings alone was $6,267.’”

"OneWorld continues to surprise us at Artists Project Earth with their dynamic approach to raising awareness on climate injustice. With their innovative and creative campaigns, they are always ahead of the game. Their groundbreaking interactive coverage of the UN Climate Change Conferences for example, allowed them to connect with a massive global audience who are otherwise entirely excluded from the process. We can only wait with bated-breath to see how this organisation evolves!"
Lorna Howarth, Artists Project Earth (APE)
"We have had a very close partnership with OneWorld since 2007 on the Learning about Living program. With OneWorld managing the proces we know we can rely on the program being implemented in and out of schools. They have a great expertise on getting many different parties collaborating on a common goal for the long term and creating local ownership and commitment for the program at all levels"
Louisa Mekenkamp, Butterfly Works
"Having regularly worked with OneWorld over the past four years I am constantly impressed with their drive, innovation and willingness to always go the extra mile for their clients. Their live streaming work has provided remote access to tens of thousands of people at numerous global conferences who would not otherwise be there, not to mention the savings in carbon emissions. The products they develop bring technology and activism together and help to engage and connect individuals with organisations and previously untapped opportunities."
Manish Joshi, GCCA
"It has been a pleasure working with OneWorld to develop an activist map for the Enough Food For Everyone IF campaign.. We asked OneWorld to develop an interactive map to enable our supporters to coordinate visits to their local MPs across constituencies in the UK. Despite the short timelines involved, OneWorld eagerly took on the challenge and worked tirelessly to meet all our needs."
Victoria Keyes, Enough Food IF
