Organization's mission

Knowmad Institut is an independent Think & Do tank based in Brandenburg, a voice for Human Dignity in public and private policies.  We are recognized as a social interest company for the promotion of science and research. Our vision is to contribute to the promotion and fulfilment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG`s), and thus to contribute to the construction of a sustainable, fair and multipolar world. We analyze reliable information in a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach that facilitates knowledge management, to educate and disseminate bold and innovative proposals that promote common solutions to global problems. We build bridges between civil society, academia, states, and the private sector. The construction of a solid evidence base allows us to better support decision-makers, opinion leaders and lobby/ advocacy groups to explore and promote innovative initiatives based on human dignity, facts, and science.
