The Freedom Institute – more than a think tank

We are creating a community of engaged citizenswho want to influence reality.

We are a place for meetings, conversations, shaping and clashing of different visions for the development of Poland, Europe, and the world. We build the foundations of a strong and responsible society. We educate future elites – people capable of strategic thinking, efficient management of the state – active citizens involved in the life of the community – their environment, city, country. We collaborate with the business world, science, administration, and politics. We create initiatives supporting education, entrepreneurship; we participate in discussions on international matters, help build good relations between Poland and key partners abroad. We believe that a dynamically developing Poland, firmly rooted in th international structures of the European Union and NATO, can play an important role in shaping the security of sustainable development, stability, and peace worldwide.
