Rogers Foundation for Person-Centred Education
The Rogers Foundation for Person-Centred Education was set up in 2005, and started its official activity in 2006 in public- and adult education areas, as well as for youth issues and sustainability.
Based on Carl R. Rogers’s thoughts we believe that a person can understand and fulfill him or herself through living, personal experiences and in accepting relationships – our mission is to ensure this accepting relationship to people. For this purpose we organize and run educational, experiential activities, as well as organize researches, projects and services, beside maintaining the Rogers Academy, a permanent educational institution. We work with drama pedagogy, arts therapy, free play, game-based learning, emotional intelligence, systems thinking, leisure time pedagogy, talent development, e-learning, sustainability education, human rights and equal opportunities, youth inclusion, employability skills, health literacy and person-centred organizational development.

GeSoB – Gesellschaft für Sozialforschung und Bildung
The founding of the Society for Social Research and Education (GeSoB) coincides with a period of economic crisis and social upheaval of global character.
In this context, GeSoB makes its contribution with social innovations based on interdisciplinary research that combines theory with practice, basic research with applied research that analyzes and overcomes the contradictions fed by social, regional, national and transnational interdependencies. Only diversity of methods is appropriate in a research program designed in this way.
The heuristic reference points of our view of humanity are the inalienable, universal and indivisible human rights and, in the social sphere, all those visions that promote the goal of an egalitarian and solidary society based on the self-socialization of people: We consciously oppose those social conditions that are subordinated to unquestioned naturalized constraints – be they economic or technocratic – with a social ideal designed in the public interest.
UWEZO GmbH develops and implements frameworks, methods and tools for lifelong learning, recognition and validation.
These instruments enable children, adolescents and adults to effectively cope with the rapidly changing conditions in
education, the labour market and society, to develop and increase their employability and their participation in society.
Healthy and capable learners and employees, who develop their own life and work career, is the primary goal.
One of the aims is to bridge the gap between formal, top-done driven education/training and validation and the informal, bottom-up, individual driven learning and valuing of the learning outcomes, including the underlying personality traits, emotions and motivations.
