WHAT ARE THE NOW REFLECTION GROUPS?

FOR EVERYONE

NOW Reflection Groups are a small community made up of diverse people working in different capacities, places and expertise levels, who want to develop themselves in some way

COMMUNITY

We connect online to discuss common challenges of being a changemaker, inspire and learn from one another, support each others development, and expand our knowledge on issues, methods, and strategies for changemaking

SELF-LEARNING

You are the responsible person to set up your goals and decide the best ways to get there with the help of our community
 

You

WHAT IS YOUR COMMITMENT:

 

Each reflection group has a cycle of 3-4 months.

The current cycle will run from mid-March to mid-June.

 

During the cycle, everyone commits to attending two monthly online group calls (3-4h in total per month)

 

We also expect you to dedicate at least 2 hours per month working on your own goals,

that you chose at the beginning of the cycle, and at the beginning of each month

 

If you want, you can also engage in deeper peer to peer learning

(1-2h call per month with one other participant)
