From their website:

The mission of the Ekskäret Foundation is to both to make sense of the world we create and allow brave spaces for people to explore and work on their inner growth. Studies show that having a “safe place” in connection to nature, where we dare to challenge ourselves, can act as important catalysts for the process of personal development. We support and contributes to these brave places by creating contexts and locations for transformative learning, where skills can be developed to better handle the rapid change and the constantly increasing complexity of our world. Skills that increase our capacity for deeper understanding and wisdom, which then engages individuals to become active co-creators in the world we create.
