Welcome to the Institute for Salutogenesis

At the Institute for Salutogenesis, we believe that every person, regardless of their background or circumstances, deserves the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential. Our mission is to build a society where everyone has an equal chance to participate in and benefit from democracy.

Guided by our visionary Democracy of Opportunity moonshot, we recognize the need for a fundamental shift in how we view our world and interact with organizations. We focus on creating environments that empower individuals with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to flourish and actively engage in democratic life.

Through our deliberative platforms, citizen tools, and media initiatives, we aim to enhance citizen agency and foster holistic well-being. We provide practical resources and support to help individuals develop the core capabilities necessary for meaningful participation in democratic processes.

Join us in our Democracy of Opportunity moonshot. Together, we can create a more inclusive and equitable society where everyone has a voice and the opportunity to shape their future.

The First 1000 Days of Life Initiative: A Foundation for Flourishing Futures

What Do We, As A Society, Owe The New Borns?

"What Are the Core Capabilities for a Flourishing Life?"

Our Areas of Focus 

We recognize that health is a lifelong journey. Our initiatives support well-being at every stage, from the critical first 1000 days of life to adulthood and beyond.

We know that the places where we live, work, and play profoundly impact our health. Our community-based projects focus on creating environments that nurture well-being.

We're leading the charge to redefine healthcare, prioritizing health creation, sustainability, and whole-person care. Our goal is a system that promotes health for all, not just treats illness.



The salutogenic paradigm offers a transformative approach to healthcare that goes beyond just treating illness and instead focuses on strengthening resources to proactively promote wellbeing. This comprehensive framework recognizes that health is shaped by complex interactions between medical, social, cultural, and political factors. It expands interventions beyond the individual to encompass community and societal levels.
