Elos in Portuguese means ‘links’ and stands for the power of transformative relationships constructed in the work we do locally and internationally.

Elos´ mission is “to offer innovative solutions for building the best of all worlds in a collective, pleasant way, using methodologies based on the Elos Philosophy and supporting the realization of socially impactful projects locally and globally.”

Guided by the Elos philosophy, Elos Foundation is direct partner of Instituto Elos Brazil in the realization of our common mission of creating a movement to make the world we dream of a reality now. Instituto Elos sparks this movement through learning-by-doing trainings and community interventions, inspiring people across the globe to take action. The Elos Foundation focusses on enabling trained practitioners, communities and organizations to continue realizing projects locally and inter-locally. Find out what Elos does here below.
