We are committed to supporting the ideas that are creating a brighter future for young people.
What are we doing?
At Fondation Botnar, our goal is to transform cities by creating inclusive urban environments and systems that are truly fit and ready to support the health and wellbeing of the young people who live in them through the transformational power of AI and digital technology.
How do we get there?
We invest in the ideas that are making a difference, bring together communities and kickstart dialogue, backed up by monitoring and evaluating to ensure we’re having the biggest impact.
Funding programs and research
To achieve our goal of supporting all young people to thrive, we need to make real world changes. Fondation Botnar invests in and supports pioneering programs and research that strive to tackle national, regional and global challenges for young people with new, innovative approaches and sharing vital knowledge.
We are proud to have achieved the Research Fairness Initiative (RFI) certification in 2022, through the systematic assessment of our organisations’ partnership approaches and processes. This allows us to continuously reflect and improve our funding activities with a view to effective and equitable global cooperation for the improved wellbeing of young people worldwide.

Creating dialogue and partnerships
We bring together stakeholders across all sectors to kickstart dialogue and create effective partnerships that bring about long-lasting change. By connecting everyone from young people to the private sector, governments to academic institutions, we build powerful networks and alliances that have real impact on policy and practice, and create a world where all young people thrive.
