The Polis Foundation

We are Polis—a foundation that aims to promote the adoption of democratic governance in highly participatory organizations. Through our research we uncover knowledge and develop tools and methodologies that assist in implementing democratic governance in both commercial and not-for-profit organizations of all sizes.

We imagine a world where human-meaningful ways of organizing become the norm. Organizations that elevate - in which their members find purpose, move towards greater harmony with their environment, community and experience safety to operate and innovate. Ultimately we believe that this can not only benefit humanity and life on this planet, but also cultivate thriving ecosystems.
