Shaping the Future of Human Learning & Development with the Power of Science and Humanities.

Our mission

The community language is currently German. As most of us work in multinational contexts and it is only a question of time, when we will be a bilingual community, the information on this page is provided in English to ensure maximum future viability. 

Learning and Development Empowered by Science and Humanities. 

We are facing disruptive change in many areas of our lives. Will we be successful at transforming our technologies, economies and societies quickly and radically enough? Will we survive the challenges of climate change, pandemics, anti-democratic movements and job computerization without giving up the achievements of our civilization? Our chances of scceeding at this Herculean task greatly depend on a revolution in the area of learning and development.

We are convinced that we need a growing number of thought leading learning and development pros willing to take responsibility and power, and intellectually capable of re-inventing education at all levels. We are devoted to empowering human resource trainers, organizational development consultants and coaches with cutting-edge science and humanities. It is our purpose to give them inspiration for developing new, evidence-based education environments, to give them ideas, good arguments, conviction and perseverance to face all challenges ahead.
