About the course

In this course you'll get to explore ways to reflect on who you want to be as a person, reconnect to your values and take meaningful action in every moment of our lives.

Throughout our lives it's easy to lose touch with – or even forget about – what matters to us.

Especially when we’re dealing with a challenging situation. Taking the time to really understand what's important to us helps us take meaningful action in every moment of our lives.

“Every person has the power to affect and change their world. One must start by looking inwards. That gives confidence, strength and the courage to stand up for one’s beliefs” – Jan Eliasson, former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations.

What will I learn?

  • Connect to your personal values.
  • Act according to what's important to you.
  • Strategies to cope better with anxiety.

How does it work?

  • This course consists of 3 lessons.
  • By doing this course together with a group of friends, colleagues or other people in the 29k app, you gain more value from the course, and get support along the journey.
  • After completing each lesson, you can have a sharing session with your group to dive deeper into each topic. This is an opportunity to be present, learn from each other, and create a safe space for meaningful human connection.
