Daniel Sachs founded the non-partisan Höj Rösten (“Raise Your Voice”) political training school – a citizens’ initiative aimed at revitalising and rebuilding trust in democracy in Sweden by improving representation. The Daniel Sachs Foundation’s founding mission is to contribute to an open, creative, and vitally democratic society with a deep respect for diversity and individual freedom.

Together, we believe that we can transform the global public sector for the better, and advance our mission to support a new generation of transformational public leaders.
