We approach education as a lifelong learning and in a tailored way to fit the modern workplace learning needs. Consequent to this, we promote and support a continuous personal learning experience and create content and events.
We also approach education as an experience by creating a social space where learning takes place.
Find out all about the workshops that are offered at the Hermann Gmeiner Academy: Harvesting, Hermann Gmeiner Day, leisure education and talks on development cooperation:
When SOS Children's Villages employees from around the world come together to tell each other stories about the best moments of their working lives, it's time for harvesting.
Each year more than 1,000 SOS Children's Villages children from all over Europe and their carers experience this summer workshop at the SOS holiday village on Lake Caldonazzo.
The challenge is to strengthen awareness of the work of SOS Children's Villages as a development cooperation organization through joint discussions.
The Hermann Gmeiner Day is something special in many ways. It is a day of coming together, of (content) exchange and a day of remembering.
