We are curators of ideas, enablers of conversations and believers in the power of narrative and education to imagine and create a shared and sustainable future.

If we want a future for all, it cannot be imagined only by some.

Nerina Finetto

Born from the belief that we need to ask the big questions, we need conversations beyond borders, disciplines and tribes, we need knowledge out of academia and we need a life-long transdisciplinary education.

Instead of looking for hope, look for action. Then, and only then, hope will come. We can’t save the world by playing by the rules, because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change, and it has to start today.

Greta Thunberg

Our mission is to inspire, educate, and support holistic thinkers and connectors of dots, people, and cultures. The world needs people who do not only imagine a better future but dare to work for it (and keep believing it will become a reality).

We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it,
and make important choices wisely.

Edward Osborne Wilson

The only way to change an old story is with a new one. Let us keep wondering, dreaming, reframing. And let us do it together.

Connecting broadly is meaningless unless you connect deeply.

Tiffany Shlain


This is our video and audio dissemination platform. We bring knowledge and wisdom out of academia beyond borders, disciplines and tribes. Dive deep with us into today’s realities, understand present trends and imagine more equal and sustainable futures.


Education can and will change the world. Interdisciplinarity and narrative literacy are key to imagining and developing a more equal and sustainable society. We foster these concepts through our workshops, events, and resources for students and teachers.

Blog & News

This is our curated content in the realm of the written word, including PhD students’ stories, our blog and the latest news. This is a space for you and us to make and share stories that matter. We invite you to join our community and start to co-create it with us.

Production & Consulting

This is our production section. We are the media partner of researchers, supporting them in mastering the art and science of communications and social media. We train communicators, develop strategies, and produce and distribute audio and video content.


A place on the web for people curious about the past, passionate about the present, and invested in the future.

" There is no stronger power than our dreams and our hopes."   - Nerina Finetto
