About Us

Our mission is to support innovation in governance that  leads to greater human freedom and prosperity.

We aim to inspire, inform and connect people to accelerate the creation of a global market of living together in Free Cities.

How We Can Help

icon 1

Speaking

For conferences and networking events, we can arrange for and provide enthusiastic speakers on the topic of Free Cities.

icon 2

For those launching their own Free-Cities related projects, we can put you in contact with experts from the industry, offering consulting and advice.

Investing

Through our network of partners and contacts, we provide guidance on investing in new Special Zones, particularly those that try to achieve more thorough autonomy and regulatory independence.

Annual Conference

Every year we host the Liberty in Our Lifetime conference where speakers share updates about Free Cities-aligned projects. The in-person connections that this event generates help build a strong global Free Cities community capable of bringing about tangible results.

This year we are expecting around 300 attendees for a program in Prague on the theme “Parallel Structures for Progress”.

Media & Resources

We use social media, our website, blog posts, and interviews to spread our message to a worldwide audience. Our news articles and blog posts feature coverage of key global developments and the human stories behind Free Cities-aligned projects.

Engaging Decision Makers

The Foundation engages with forward-thinking governments who are interested in establishing Free Cities within their territories.

Conversations with decision-makers have helped us advance several new law projects in different countries that will allow Free Cities-aligned special zones to be developed.

Free Communities Directory

We are developing a directory of freedom-oriented projects that will allow settlers and investors to access detailed and up-to-date information about places they can move to or invest in.

It will feature an interactive map and a profile page for each project explaining progress to date and elements of the Free Cities model it incorporates.
