HEALTH & WELLNESS

CULTURE

MEDIA

NewKnowledge focuses on four areas: the biosphere, health and wellness, culture, and media. These four pillars are the foundation of our work and link our research to important contemporary phenomena that affect all people. Connecting each project to one or more of these four pillars helps us see how the challenges of our time are interconnected.

As we study a wide range of social issues, our priority is to use social science research toward solutions. We study the systems underlying complex issues and partner with change-makers to develop solutions. Our collaborative, interdisciplinary team draws from diverse perspectives throughout this process. The plurality of our team enables us to challenge assumptions, articulate the problems, dream of what could be, and develop actionable solutions so that all people may live to their potential in a strong democracy and thriving biosphere.

In each pillar, NewKnowledge works on initiatives that cut across our projects and partnerships. These initiatives address the big challenges in our society and give voice to our values as an organization.
