Freedom of expression, democracy, tolerance, human rights and equality… these are the parts of the Gazeta Wyborcza’s DNA.
For 30 years we have engaged in the most important social topics in the spirit of citizen journalism. And we will continue to do this. We have learned a lot about the importance of the free media recently. Hoping to support the development of independent journalism and reliable media coverage, we established the Gazeta Wyborcza Foundation.
It is our intention to promote social initiatives and citizen projects along with all activities aimed at broadening journalistic freedom, upgrading the quality of journalism, developing education and critical thinking.
Our aim is cultural and educational work in journalism, art and culture in Poland and abroad, as well as the integration of the scientific, journalistic, arts and business communities in the most important topics of the modern world – peace, freedom, democracy and civil rights.
