philosophy for living

What is
New Acropolis?

New Acropolis is a non-profit organisation present in more than 60 countries around the world. Offering an education in practical philosophy, we promote cultural, ecological and humanitarian activities driven by voluntary actions.


We propose the search for Wisdom as a way of living which gives meaning to our existence


The practice of human values is the basis for a model of active and participative culture, which brings out the qualities of each person


Volunteering is acting in our community to have a meaningful and positive impact in the world around us

The Philosophy for Living course offers a series of theoretical and practical classes to progress in self-knowledge.

This allows us to bring the timeless values of philosophy to bear in the face of our daily circumstances as a means of awakening individual authenticity and developing a better way of living together.

  • Development

    To develop the best of the human potential, by promoting the realization of the human being as an individual and his or her integration as an active and conscious part of society and nature, in order to improve the world.

The Acropolis Magazine

In ancient Athens the Acropolis, literally meaning the High City, was the place which supported the highest ideals of the people.

The Acropolis magazine is inspired by this concept and aims to share eclectic content, combining all the major endeavours of philosophy, art, science, education and culture.
