We understand that the prosperity of a country and the well-being of its citizens fully depend on a culture and institutions in accordance with the principles and values of freedom. We support initiatives that work to reinforce the foundations of a free society, such as pluralism, the rule of law, civil society, peace, limited government, tolerance, responsibility, and human dignity.
These initiatives are organised as follows:
Ideas / High politics
FUNDACIÓN PARA EL PROGRESO
Think-tank inspired by classical liberalism, founded to combat our youth’s fatal ignorance in economic, political and social matters, through the generation of content, publications, dissemination, courses, workshops and forums, aiming to influence public and intellectual opinion in the country, emphasising the values of freedom and dignity of all people.
FUNDACIÓN P!ENSA VALPARAISO
Think-tank dedicated to the study, design and promotion of public policies that tend to the effective decentralisation of the country, the integral development of its regions, and citizen participation as a method of democratic control. Its greatest aspiration is for Valparaíso to become the best city to live in Chile.
INSTITUTO RES PÚBLICA
Organisation that promotes the intellectual formation of young people, based on the ideas of freedom and dignity of the human person, with the purpose of making Chile a fair and free country, founded on the principles of human dignity, justice and individual freedom, with opportunities for all.
FUNDACIÓN DIGNIDAD CHILE
Organisation that brings together young leaders with proven potential and a spirit of responsibility, eager to make Chile and the world a better place. The foundation collaborates with them in their training and in promoting their social initiatives, through learning, work and team cooperation experiences to strengthen their leadership vocation, consolidate their social capital, enhance their role as agents of change and motivate them to bring about actions that have a sustainable and positive impact on the development of their municipalities, regions and the country as a whole.
FUNDACIÓN BUEN PUERTO (DIGNIDAD VALPARAÍSO)
Based in Valparaíso, Buen Puerto mobilises a network of young leaders with the objective of realising initiatives that produce a positive impact on their environment, through concrete actions: entrepreneurship, recycling, sports, culture, housing, caring for those in need and the elderly, cleaning and beautifying public spaces, habitat improvement, use of technology and citizen security.
FUNDACIÓN DIGNIDAD CABO DE HORNOS Y LA ANTÁRTICA CHILENA
Based in Puerto Williams, the purpose of this organisation is to promote sport in general and sailing in particular, as a tool for social cohesion, development, learning and training. Likewise, it seeks to stimulate comprehensive urban planning, with special emphasis on the creation of green areas; innovation and entrepreneurship; environmental care; and cultural activities, among others. Its main initiative is Cedena PW, a nautical school whose purpose is to train children and young people in sailing with solid principles and the ability to develop freely and responsibly.
VINSON OF ANTARCTICA
Polar expedition ship that seeks to make it a dream come true to integrate the Antarctic territory with the continental territory of our country, bringing young people, scientists, students, sailors and explorers to visit, appreciate, discover and take care of Antarctica, thus making it more our own.
Nation: identity and aspiration
Organisation whose mission is to become the main forum for Chilean civil society in the areas of international relations, geopolitical strategy, security, and defence, with a vision that combines independence, openness, intellectual rigour, and a healthy measure of idealism. This is done with the purpose of promoting a well-defined, common and contemporary national identity. To this end, it prepares studies, organises seminars, prepares comparative analyses and critical documents, conducts surveys and creates spaces for the training of young people, inspired by the practices of the best international study centres dedicated to this matter.
