Welcome to the THINK TANK
More than 25 years have passed since 1989 when Poland regained freedom, and 10 years - since 2004 - when Poland became a member of the European Union. Nowadays it is developing faster than the other countries of the EU. The future of the Central Europe, however, is still unforeseeable and requires answer to the question about European Nations' aspirations and capabilities. Undoubtedly, such important questions should be decided by adjoining societies collectively. 

But the point is how to come up with the best solution and how to implement it?

That's why we created THINKTANK - an independent, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, which is a platform for the exchange of ideas and a forum for constructive discussion about coexistence of modern societies and using their resources effectively.

We believe in the power of science, enterprise, dialog, and international cooperation, therefore we put our efforts into education and international understanding. It would be great if we were able to combine these activities with respect common European tradition and culture. 

The Institute of Social Affairs supports scientific researches and educational activities in the areas of socio-politics, economics and legislation. It was created to spread education, to promote new initiatives and innovative solutions, to develop the potential of young people.

We would like to inspire local community, authority, decision-makers, leaders of business and public administration to reflect on the current political and social situation. Together we are able to solve any issues in a proper way, using purely and simply peaceful political debates. We aspire to become an opinion-forming institution. We are trying to help understanding the world.

But why education is so important? 

By now, economics has known only three traditional factors of production: land, capital and labor. Nowadays, however, modern approach economics needs the fourth one, i.e. knowledge. It is presumably the most important factor. The world is entering the era of new dichotomous division between those who have knowledge and are wealthy, and those who do not have it and are poorly off.

Moreover, Nelson Mandela said that "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". In the “Republic”, Plato wrote that “the direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life”. It cannot be otherwise.
