Department of Stories

Stories are everywhere, they shape our worldview and nourish our imagination.

The department of stories encourages us to paint a picture of the society we would like to live in: our view of the ideal society of the future. It could be imaginary and futuristic, but when told in a compelling manner, it is one step closer to becoming a reality.



Department of Solutions

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become.

At the Department of Solutions, we attempt to solve the community’s most challenging problems. We, the solvers, are fundamental pillars of any community’s growth. We are identified as social entrepreneurs, engineers, or sometimes just tinkers.



Department of Journeys

They always say that ‘the journey is worth taking’.

The quest of the Department of Journeys is to carefully curate pathways that will unfold for you to explore the world through meaningful interactions. These routes have been handpicked by distilling the experience of those who have delved into complex social issues and pioneered change.
