Self-empowerment

We encourage a community of self-empowered and self-determined people.

  • People from all social backgrounds should be self-determined in what they learn and experience mutual appreciation in their local community
  • We are self-governed and contribute with our own interests, capacity and curiosity to the project

Trust

We commit to honesty and transparency as basis for mutual trust.
