Working Across Borders

and Across Disciplines

If we are imaginative enough to make new connections, to see new pathways, or to look at the familiar from different perspectives, then the Tällberg Foundation conversations will have lasting value. And even better if they inspire new action.

Our Initiatives


We aim to contribute to the new thinking —and new acting— required by this moment in history.
