At Holis you will learn skills that will help you be a change agent, a champion for purpose-led organisations and a better team player in interdisciplinary teams while working on social impact projects.
Holis School has a limited number of places. This is the main reason why you have to apply to be part of Holis. We also think that a limited size group helps establish meaningful and long lasting connections. We open the applications each year in March and the deadline is in May.
Once you’ve been selected you will start your Online Preparatory Session in July that lasts for one month. After this you will travel to a remote place and spend 10 days with your team members learning and working on a social challenge. At the end you will be part of the Online Follow-up Session where you will learn how to make your project visible.
Apathy in remote rural areas is one of the biggest barriers to initiate any positive change. We will look into ways to activate the local community.
