Study & Community

We believe that Innovation and change are the result of community and collaboration.

Life-long learning and civic engagement are at the core of our mission. Through workshops, study trips, community retreats, webinars and other learning opportunities we connect and challenge each other while learning from a variety of experts in a variety of fields.

Farewell Reception of our 2016 Berlin Fellows

We aim to foster a culture that is collaborative, caring, open to vulnerability, interdisciplinary, opinionated, eclectic, international and fun. As an organization, we organize run study & community opportunities for our Fellows and Senior Fellows. As a community, our Fellows and Senior Fellows host independent activities in cities across Europe and the United States. Activities include study trips, discussions, community retreats and other events.

Community and life-long learning and civic engagement are at the core of our mission.

Together, we think about the big questions about life and society – including responsibility, values and universal rights.
