Our mission and our purpose

MISSION: To promote and defend the culture and institutions of a free society.

OUR PURPOSE: To influence the public and intellectual opinion climate in the country.

We care about the principles that are considered valuable and valid in all times, beyond “feasible ideas” according to the political reality of the time. We aim for cultural change.

Misión, visión y valores

Our institutional values.

“We think progress is the discovery of what we still do not know. And that such discovery can only take place in spaces of deep freedom
that allow people to experiment, make mistakes, and learn through exploration and refinement of the diversity of talents and skills that they possess. The enormous spiritual and intellectual wealth that human beings possess flourishes only when they find it possible to deploy their uniqueness, that is, when they are free to pursue – without restrictions other than the respect for other people’s life projects – their dreams and personal goals in a spontaneous order of voluntary and peaceful cooperation. “

VISION:  To be the Chilean beacon of the ideas, culture, and institutions of a free society.

OUR WORK:

  • We educate the youth on the principles, institutions, and ideas of a free society through programs of our own and through partnerships with other institutions.
  • We actively participate in public debate, promoting and conveying our ideas.
  • We are a forum that gathers for individuals and institutions who support the ideal of a society respectful of human dignity.
