WE WANT TO TRANSFORM THE WAY WE LEARN

Instituto NOW offers individuals and organizations transformative learning experiences focusing on the development of competences for the 21st century.

Our values

We believe that making education truly transformative, inclusive and meaningful is essential to build a more just, diverse and equal world. For us, education is not limited to the school walls – it takes place wherever we learn something valuable. And learning happens in the interaction with others.

Our actions

We create learning experiences that make learning visible and measurable. We have two ways of doing that: we offer personal and professional development programs for youth and adults, and we help organizations improve their training and learning processes.

OUR SERVICES

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

  • oli

    “Without the support of Instituto NOW we wouldn’t exist today! With their help in setting up the methodology, we have been able to go from zero to a running program in 6 months. Together with Elis and Rahel we have created a truly innovative program that helps young people who struggle to get into the job market to learn the competences needed to stand on their own feet.”

    “Instituto NOW was essential to help us redesign the basic level of our learning program. Knowing how to work with diversity and social impact are essential competences for the 21st century, and even more important for our work with global citizenship. Instituto NOW was able to translate their expertise about this topics to create meaningful content for our program.”

    “I worked with Elis and Rahel for over 2 years in different non-formal education projects. I was impressed by their capacity to create new methodologies and to think outside of the box. It’s very clear that the values of Instituto NOW are present in everything they do. I’d love to work with them again in the future.”

    “Participating in an exchange experience was essential for us to explore new perspectives about our organizational culture, about the competences developed in our programs, and about management. Our experience in Zürich allowed us to have deep conversations with actors from that ecosystem, and better understand the nature of the obstacles that we face as organizations.”
