WHAT is a platform integrating and spreading knowledge.
Integration is achieved by mixing theory and experience on the one hand, and the three classic approaches to knowledge on the other: Arts, Sciences and Humanities. Spreading is done in a playful and entertaining way (it’s been known for a long time that people learn better if we have fun doing it) and through several online and offline channels: WHAT Magazine, WHAT Meets, WHAT Festival, etc.
Content are organized in three areas (Individual, Society and Environment) and inspired by the idea that all human beings are part of the same thing. Thinkers and scientists of all times and cultures agree that we are physically and spiritually linked, whether we like it or not, we look it good or not.
Immersed in a hurried and individualistic society that we have made, we seem to have made the mistake of forgetting that link so favourable for all, as individuals and as a group. WHAT wants to remind something so seemingly simple that even our worst enemy would be able to share our same likes or worries, his own daughter could be called our own or that even today we could judge and penalize a situation in which tomorrow we could be involved in and then approve of it. So understanding and learning, humbly and with generosity, seems a good path to better individual and mutual wellbeing, if they are really so different.

WHAT needs financing in order to exist and doing it all the interested people together distributes efforts, allows to maintain independence and is consistent with its philanthropic character.
Obviously each one can contribute the amount of his choice, which remains private, and WHAT commits to use each euro in a responsible way and only and exclusively for this project.
Thank you in advance.
