THIS IS NOW
We are an organization that believes that everyone should have access to meaningful learning opportunities. We understand diversity as a key for our growth and for developing solutions for global and local challenges. For us, social change can’t wait and there is no better time to take action than NOW.
NOW creates an out of the box learning environment where everyone involved is learning and teaching at the same time.
NOW experiences empower people to change themselves and the world around them.
NOW connects individuals and organizations to multiply their impact and pollinate the world with positive actions.
THE NOW PILLARS
Classroom in the clouds
“At one point I felt like I was just peeling onions in the kitchen while everybody else was doing social change. But then my team members reminded me of the impact our food had on the participants’ reflections about their eating habits, I realized that actually peeling onions can make this world a tiny bit better.”
“I am a Woman, I am an African, I am Arab and I am Muslim. For some people, those are the worst characteristics a human being could have. But what do they actually know about any of these things?”
“People learn in different ways, at different paces, and have different needs in their learning processes. There is no ‘one size fits all’ in education.”
“We cannot be active in all spheres and areas where social change is needed, but we can become allies”
“We cared for each other’s learning and engaged in honest and powerful feedback sessions.”
“On the 6th day of the NOW Encounter, we discovered our privileges. … Reality hit me.”
“Being authentic in this world, where we have learned to be strong and project ourselves is really not an easy task. But once you have experienced the strength that comes with it, there is something awakening inside of you.”
“I put more work into NOW than I actually had time and energy for, just because I was so passionate about the project and I felt the work was important and needed to be done.”
“Toggl is part of our wellbeing policy in which each team member pledges time to the organization and we use Toggl to track how much that person actually worked.”
