As heart-driven organization, we lead in advocacy as well as in community mobilisation.

We are the premier global network for evidence-based policy measures and community-based interventions to prevent and reduce harm caused by alcohol and other drugs.

We take the lead with regard to evidence-based and high-impact advocacy for policy measures to prevent and reduce harm caused by alcohol and other drugs. We offer a comprehensive Legislators’ Toolbox for creating, facilitating and developing such policy measures.

We also take the lead with regard to promoting the lifestyle of the 21st century: living free from alcohol and other drugs – to be active and committed citizens dedicated to making their communities better. Our membership concept is founded on promoting healthy lifestyle choices by our own examples.

Our leadership is founded on and rooted in a deep from-bottom-up multicultural understanding. Our leadership is all about a flexible working method providing everything from community action to policy advocacy, driven by leading experts.

In this way our environments are dream incubators.

We create environments for people to thrive in, to feel safe in, to be creative and take risks in. It’s the atmosphere and set-up of IOGT environments that makes us who we are because we encourage and empower people to live up to their full potential.

Opportunity Maker

congress moment_022_sIOGT International is all about bringing people together and empowering them to make things happen – as they wish, based on their skills and interests and always with a supportive environment to back them up.

This way we create opportunities: opportunities to learn by doing, to experience failure and learning from it, to create and collaborate, to innovate and opportunities to experience success and share it with others. The opportunities we make are about writing success stories, together.

We also make opportunities in a different dimension: We work hand-in-hand with recognized and committed decision-makers and opinion leaders on all levels to debate and boost evidence-based findings and opinions on issues of global health, development and prosperity. We make opportunities for decision-makers and opinion leaders to achieve better policy outcomes and reach more comprehensive and sustainable results.

In IOGT, we work passionately for the benefit of the people around us. For us, that’s what heart-driven means: making the world a better place by passionately helping one another to thrive.

Lifestyle Innovator

Life Set FreeIOGT means Life Set Free.

The IOGT brand stands for the lifestyle of the 21st century. We empower people to live a richer and freer, happier and healthier life.

Our membership concept is founded on promoting healthy lifestyle choices by our own examples.

We are a worldwide community of non-governmental organizations, made up of heart-driven people of all ages regardless of gender, colour, nationality, creed, sexual orientation, social position or political persuasion

  • Who live for and promote by their own example a life free of alcohol and other drugs,
  • Who are passionate about helping other people find pure joy of life, and
  • Who are taking the lead with regard to promoting a lifestyle of dedication and participation in making our communities and societies better.

The lifestyle of the 21st century is about living free from alcohol and other drugs. But it doesn’t stop there. A rich and free lifestyle is not only about the absence of harmful substances and behaviors. A richer and freer life is also about how to endow it with meaning and live up to one’s full potential – it’s about dreams, opportunities, community, choices and commitment. That’s what we call Life Set Free.

The lifestyle of the 21st century is all about leading a self-determined life, a fulfilled life, a conscious and compassionate life and a healthy life – dedicated to making the world a better place through our own actions every day and in community with our fellow humans, locally and globally.

Community Change-Maker

Community actionThe IOGT brand is about the community: what we can do for the community and how we can positively impact the community. It’s about heart-driven commitment to play our role and to lead by example in order to inspire and make transformative change happen.

The IOGT way builds on the human condition, that we realize our full potential only together, in the public realm shaping the world, not in the supermarket, alone, consuming the world.

In IOGT International, we believe that human beings are freer together than on their own.

We hold that human beings are freer as citizens in public squares than as consumers in private malls.
