Why community design matters

How can we kickstart individual and organization transformation to work on solving complex challenges? 

How can we bring people together in a meaningful way to deal with the multilayered problems of our planet?

Today, individuals and organizations feel disempowered to solve the most urgent issues facing our society and planet. Collaboration across disciplines, organizations, and differences is needed now more than ever, but it’s hard to know where to start, step up, organize and take action.

We believe complex challenges can only be tackled through a community mindset. The better we understand connections and catalyze interactions, the better we can prepare the ground to enable change through communities.
how can we
Unleash the power of connected knowledge?

What is cohort-based learning?

Live and Asynchronous

Combination of live classes and asynchronous content is what separates cohort-based learning from self-paced courses

Social and Immersive

Throughout the cohort, participants learn and build together. As a result, this creates a social, immersive and interactive learning experience

Alumni Experience

After the cohort, participants stay in the Neol community as alumni, attending private events and accessing exclusive content.
