New Acropolis India is an independent member of an international non-profit association International Organization New Acropolis (IONA), represented in over 60 countries. IONA promotes an ideal of timeless values to contribute to individual and collective evolution. Its associative structure guarantees respect for diversity, autonomy and initiative of each of its member associations. Its operational structure enables it to act independently of all political, religious or financial interests.

We have always tried to understand the forms of expression of all cultures, past and present, in an attempt to discover the roots of their works of art, their scientific advances, their religious experiences and their social and human projects through Philosophy, Culture and Volunteering.

Taking inspiration from the timeless principles of the Indian tradition, New Acropolis Cultural Organization  works with the specific focus to rediscover India’s rich artistic, scientific and human heritage to offer it as a vital contribution to collective human progress relevant to our times today.

Our Founding Principles


To promote an Ideal of international fraternity, based on respect for human dignity, beyond any difference of gender, culture, religion, social class etc.

The strength of this ideal of fraternity lies in what unites us, more than in what separates us. It is firmly based on the recognition, protection and assurance of those universal values, which, while respecting diversity, transcend local practices and customs and come together in a set of common ethical principles that are inherent in the dignity of every human being.


To encourage the love of wisdom through the comparative study of philosophies, religions, sciences and arts, in order to achieve a knowledge of the human being, nature and the universe

The love of truth and knowledge sets out from the legitimate aspiration to develop our own discernment in order to gain a better understanding of the world and ourselves. We see philosophy as an axis connecting the different facets and angles of human knowledge. Philosophy can bring together the sources of the past and the present in a holistic, broad and integrating vision, becoming a real force for progress that seeks to understand life more deeply and to harmonize all aspects of knowledge and experience.


To develop the best part of the human potential, by promoting each persons fulfilment as an individual and as an active member of society. To act in harmony with Nature in order to improve the world

Our work enables individuals to improve themselves so as to contribute to sustainable social development. The human being still has an enormous latent potential. To get to know that potential and to develop it is one of the fundamental pillars of life itself and provides a source of lasting satisfaction. A balanced and all-round development of ourselves, and the realization of the best qualities and values of our human nature, are the solid basis for a better world.
