About Lifeworks GlobalBuilding on our history
Lifeworks Global, originally known as Lifeworks Foundation, was created to research and promote effective solutions to pressing environmental and social issues. Paul Manweiler founded the organisation in 2008, and he has been its sole funder since inception. However, to fully realise its vision and affect positive change on a global scale, the organisation is now seeking additional funding sources to expand its reach and service.
