NEXT Institute is a young initiative. If you are here now, you’ve found us in the alpha phase. That means you were specifically looking for what we have to offer. That is good news. Welcome!
Behind the scenes, we are working hard to roll out the NEXT Institute bootcamp and courses as soon as possible. We aim to have our first courses online in July 2021. Meanwhile, we are expanding the explainer section.
If you support what we are doing, we’d love your contribution – in whatever form. You’ll find some examples on this page.
NEXT Institute has two main goals:
- We aim to make technologies more humane. Understanding them is the first step.
- We want technology to unify, rather than to deepen the divides.
The overall objective is to strengthen democracies all over the world.
Perhaps you can imagine we are feeling a sense of urgency now. You can help us to roll out faster.
Shaping the digital age.
How to Contribute
You may like to write a column
If you understand an associated topic that many people are struggling to comprehend, you could write a column. We like to keep things simple. If you have the ability to extract the core from a thorny issue – and explain it in simple terms – you are exactly what we are looking for!
Please note: we are not so much interested in opinion pieces, because we focus on demystifying complex matters. It helps if you are an experienced writer, as we currently have limited capacity to edit material. But if not, we’ll work something out.
You are an expert in a certain field and would like to curate a topic page
That would be possible. We currently focus on technology and law. Many of the phenomena we are covering have a psychological angle as well. Let us know your field of expertise.
You are an expert in a certain field and have time to check our content on accuracy
Welcome, welcome. Making mistakes is human, but we aim to be accurate and fact-based. If you spot an error, let us know.
You can edit
Some external material may be really good, but would require some editing. If you could help us out on that front, drop us a line!
You would like to develop your own course
NEXT Institute aims to be a platform for everyone who can explain the complexities of these confusing times.
We will gladly offer the opportunity to sell your own courses on the NEXT Institute platform. Any course would have to fit in with our curriculum, of course, so check with us before you start developing content. Please have a look at the courses that are in the pipeline, to get an idea of our topics. Click here.
NEXT Institute will offer you all the tools and support you need to develop a course.
We’d love to hear from you!
Drop us a line. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
If you’d like to support our efforts, but don’t have any time to spend, you may want to consider sponsoring us. This would be extremely helpful, as all is done on voluntary basis until now, and we need to make some investments soon. It doesn’t have to be big. Change comes one tiny step at the time.
We are in the process of setting up a Patreon page. Drop us a line if you want to support us.
