Non-formal education based on Experiential Learning Cycle

We create learning environments in which children, youth and adult learners benefit from creative and innovative tools based on their lifelong learning rights. We consider these learning environments within the framework of the experiential learning cycle. In this context, we aim to provide the citizens with cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioral skills that will develop their global citizenship identity through non-formal education.

Awareness Raising and Communication Campaigns

Today, thanks to globalization and technological developments, it is possible to use digital tools actively for communal change. We organize awareness and communication campaigns so that global citizens can continue their lives as active citizens.

Policy Monitoring and Advocacy

Global citizens who actively engage with their environments by having knowledge and awareness are important actors for social change. In order to ensure social change, we track policies and conduct advocacy initiatives.

Our Methods
