Coconut Academy is a quest to create a kickass methodology that allows people and communities to shine.

This journey is based on five guiding principles, that serve as a framework and reference point for everything to come:

 

THE FIVE COCONUT PRINCIPLES

SELF expression

Taking meaningful action and creating impactful projects for society asks for a deep understanding of our passions and talents. This requires consciousness about our fears, beliefs and the way we want to express ourselves to the world.  

 

INTERACTION WITH reality

Self development is more sustainable and powerful if connected to "the real world". We believe that people only get out of their comfort zone if interacting and engaging with other people who are not part of the process. 

CREATIVITY & FUN

Self- and community empowerment is not esoteric, exclusive or the icing on the cake, but can be fun, inclusive and widespread. We believe that playfulness, humor and creative experiences are the entry points to reach people who don't naturally connect with these topics.


ACTION WITH PURPOSE

The best way to empower ourselves is by, simply, acting. All our work is based on an entrepreneurial mindset: making our hands dirty and using creativity to prototype and implement meaningful projects for communities, and therefore, the world. 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

For us, empowerment requires empathy, eyes of abundance, co-creation, open spaces and honest dialogues, and that`s why we like to only work with groups. Yes, we believe in the transformational power of groups, and aim to empower individuals to also help develop valuable communities all around the world.
