The Empowerment Foundation is based in Switzerland. Our goal is to support all the initiatives that contribute to enhancing critical thinking and freedom. 

 

We strongly believe that a free citizen is someone who understands the whys and wherefores of the world in which we are living.

 

By providing an unbiased platform where individuals can access and contribute information that is not filtered by algorithms according to interests, The Empowerment foundation highlights engaged content that offers an alternative point of view to the public.

 

By bringing together a larger perspective, individuals will regain the ability to think critically and act in a more informed and responsible way with a broader vision on a situation

 

The Empowerment foundation encourages curiosity and seeks to encourage individuals to advocate, through its platform, on topics that are essential to humanity.

 

It is the era of H2H – Human to Human, without third-party interaction.  

 

 

The Empowerment Foundation supports any initiative that will lead to edit, share and amplify meaningful information produced by the people for the people and that will contribute to building an enlightened world.

THE CONTEXT

Media, the fourth power, is being more than ever used as a propaganda tool, even though it has been outpaced by social media.

Information available on social media is being filtered by algorithms according to the interests of each and every one of us, but not according to what is relevant for the world. This means that the information reaching each individual is filtered according to his/her interests.

Social networks have benefited society in many ways, one of its major benefits is the ability to remove frontiers.  The Internet has radically enhanced our access to information in many ways, empowering every and anyone to share ideas and connect with the entire world. Yet while speech is invited and empowered on the electronic frontier, it is also sometimes threatened.

 

Nowadays, information is too often published or posted on social networks or on news feeds without any critical stance, analysis nor added value. Too often algorithms influence and reduce the magnitude of the curiosity.

 

Due to interest groups, individuals are deprived of their free will. Independence is key to critical thinking. It can only be achieved through decentralization, where no interest group can influence nor use the media to serve its own interests.
