Laboratory of Social Impact Ideas

Many people have beautiful ideas to build a new world. Even if they understand how to realize them, normally they find themselves alone, spend precious time and effort looking for funding, build an image, apply for grants or competitions... delaying the time from seed to action.

AlterContacts Foundation is here to help - so you can start building a new world today.

We act as a virtual laboratory of ideas that develops practices for sustainable solutions, helping people, communities, and organizations to become more resourceful. We incubate initiatives that contribute to a more prosperous world for generations to come.

The ultimate goal of a think tank is to be the driver of change: identify an institutional void or a societal problem that is not addressed, and bring attention to it. Both from the decision- and policymakers and the wider public through research, publications, events, initiatives.

We change the way things are done to a more holistic, conscious, and safe one that will define the future of our planet.
