We envision a world where voices are not only heard, but listened to.
Where speech is informed and informed people speak out.
Where inequality becomes marginalised and the marginalised become equals.
We envision a deeply connected, sustainable, fair world.
The Guerrilla Foundation supports activists and grassroots movements working towards bringing about major systemic change across Europe in line with the Great Transition. We see citizen-movements as the vehicle for redirecting the global trajectory toward a socially equitable, culturally enriched, and ecologically resilient planetary civilization. We support activism structures, social movements and urgent actions in order to weave a new narrative shifting from an extractive economy, exploitative labour, and militaristic governance to a living economy with cooperative labour and a deeply democratic society that prioritises social and ecological wellbeing.
We do not want to shy away from public protest, particularly activities that might cause public controversy. We are not risk averse.
We want to create a close, communal ecosystem of individuals, institutions and networks of organisations built on long-lasting, substantial and reliable connections.
We are not afraid to share failures, give honest feedback, in order to foster a trusting, constructive learning environment for our grantees and other funders.
We want to be inclusive and sensitive to societal differences and actively seek out strong, locally rooted organisations to partner with.
We look to activate and empower our partners to take effective action to contribute to a broader value shift in society.
