about people

The high-quality staff of the Institute comprises close to 60 people from differing backgrounds: managers of school-systems, social activists, organizational consultants, group facilitators, psychologists, sustainability experts, outstanding teachers, high-tech people, academicians, and former military people.

Our staffers are experts in a range of areas - educational philosophy, innovation, regional change, creating dialogue, group facilitation, and evaluation processes.

And they have shared qualities - passion, uncompromising commitment to the success of the venture, a democratic humanistic value-set, openness of thought, an entrepreneurial spirit, and skills in facilitating change processes.

Most important - they are all willing to dream, to translate their dreams into the smallest details, and then fulfil it in practice.

Coming soon - detailed profiles of all our team members. Until then - here are few of them.
