How We workDiscover our methodology, our collaborative approach and our creative processes.
We collaborate with partners across the world to create sustainable impact
We work with partners worldwide - organisations which are already embedded in and trusted by their communities, who understand the local realities and challenges, and who are engaged in the topics we work on. This approach supports long-term and sustainable impact and allows our projects to scale globally while responding effectively to local cultural and social dynamics.
Our partners also build the capacity of other organisations and individuals within their local networks, creating a multiplier effect which allows our educational initiatives to reach communities that couldn't be reached otherwise.

Our educational tools and methodologies are accessible for use by diverse
Our digital and media literacy resources, tools and interventions combine design and pedagogical methodologies into diverse and interactive formats such as tool-kits, guides, workshop curricula, and exhibition objects. They are adaptable, scalable, localisable and translatable, and their Creative Commons license makes them freely accessible to all. Our partners worldwide adopt and adapt them to reach the goals and needs of their communities.

We always work collaboratively. We foster collaboration, co-creation and co-development by actively engaging with partners worldwide. We believe that working together and joining forces bring forth innovative solutions, leverage diverse expertise, and allow us to scale the reach and impact of our interventions and resources.
We apply a bottom-up approach to create impactful interventions and resources. We believe that our interventions and resources are only successful when our partners localise and adapt them to the particularities and needs of their communities at the local level. We learn from our partners and their unique insights, ideas, and expertise, enabling us to improve our interventions and resources constantly.
We believe in the power of knowledge sharing. We foster a culture where knowledge is freely exchanged and shared through our work with partners and collaborators. By creating collaborative spaces for sharing ideas, insights, and best practices, we build the capacity of different audiences and enable them to learn from one another and grow their expertise.
We are committed to advancing knowledge within the field of the different ways how digital technologies impact society and democracies. We actively seek opportunities to push the boundaries of innovation, research, and learning.
We don't offer answers; we promote conversations that inform societies and prepare them to make decisions regarding how they relate to digital technologies and they respond to the challenges created by them.
