about the innovation

Link Online Learners

What we do?

We run global, youth-led online intercultural exchanges. These range from fun games and conversations as entry points to member-generated extended collaborations that foster meaningful understanding as well as deep empathy and unique insight from designing first-hand experiences together.

 These are the kinds of quality interactions that only usually happen in once-in-a-lifetime school foreign exchange trips. We are making them happen four times a week,  to create really powerful bonds and genuine friendships between young people from truly diverse countries and lifestyles. 

Why we do it?

Our mission is to ensure that the next generation are fluid and very comfortable in interacting, collaborating and developing authentic friendships across cultures, world views and geographical boundaries. We believe that empathic listening and active engagement with people from places you may never go to,    will help build a world that appreciates our shared humanity.
