The Foro del Sur Foundation is a private non-profit organization whose actions seek to promote diversity and plurality of thought and the consolidation of democracy within the framework of research, training and consulting activities with the aim of making significant contributions to matters of public policies that affect the international integration of our country.
We believe in the need for diversity to approach our projects and, therefore, our work is always crossed by a diversity criteria, and we promote art and culture as a means of social integration. We are also at the forefront of contemporary issues, such as management with a gender perspective and sustainable development. We created the platform Las Argentinas Trabajamos, which, in addition to making visible and valuing the work of Argentine women in different areas and social sectors for the development of the country, generates specific training courses for trade unionists, members of the informal economy, members of the judiciary power, of the public administration, and people who hold political office.
Likewise, the Foundation created the Acelerar Igualdad network, which brings together 750 people throughout the national territory, and is a founding member of the AgendaXlaigualdad initiative, which among its many actions generated an articulation program between academia and unions in order to collect and systematize research, studies and actions related to gender issues.
We carry out activities and studies focused on the problem of climate change, bio-inputs and the use of different energy sources.
The Foro del Sur Foundation was created by a group of intellectuals, businessmen and professionals concerned about creating a space for meeting and dialogue between politics, business and academia, which were immersed in their own specificities.
Since its inception, twenty-five years ago, the Foundation was conceived as a meeting place for businessmen, academics and politicians of different ideological signs, in which free, democratic and broad debate prevailed. Since then, the actions of the Foro del Sur Foundation have been recognized for their breadth and plurality, the dissemination of various currents of thought and its intense work at the international level, particularly in promoting relations between the countries of our region and the world.
A clear reflection of this action is the publication of Archivos del Presente, the Foundation's international news magazine, which has been the most representative magazine on foreign policy in South America for more than twenty years, and in which the main personalities of Argentina and the world have collaborated.
In 2011, after the cessation of the Prebisch Foundation's activities, we assumed the commitment to continue its actions through our activities.
The Foundation has also created, together with the Argentinian Women Judges Association, the Acelerar Igualdad network, which brings together 750 people throughout the national territory, and is a founding member of the AgendaXlaIgualdad initiative, which among its many actions generated an articulation program between the academia and unions in order to collect and systematize research, studies and actions related to gender issues.
We carry out activities and studies focused on climate change, bio-inputs and the use of different energy sources.
