1) Objective

The Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation for Human Progress (FPH) is a Swiss foundation created in 1982. The Foundation’s mission is to finance, through grant funding or loans, research and action contributing in a significant and innovative way to the progress of humankind through science and social development. Its work focuses on governance, ethics, and sustainable modes of living.

FPH provides long-term core funding to civil society organisations that put forward alternatives and advocate on the issues covered by the ten programmes that have been selected for the budget period running from 2021 to 2023:

  • P01 – Regional Integration, Peace and Cooperation
  • P02 – Territorialised Sustainable Food Systems
  • P03 – Territories and Bioregionalism
  • P04 – Ecological Economics
  • P05 – Technological Democracy, Econological Technologies and Low-Tech
  • P06 – Regulation of Transnational Companies and Sustainable Sectors
  • P07 – Democracy and the Rule of Law
  • P08 – Alter-Globalist Movements
  • P09 – Energy and Climate
  • P10 – Capitalisation, Structuring Information and Conferences

3) Location
