What is AKORD?
AKORD is our first joint creation through which we spread light, encouraging others to take steps in this direction themselves.
"Academy of Personal Growth 12 - AKORD" is the creation of two happy couples: Anita and Ivan & Katarina and Igor. We bring a lot of love and dedication to it, but also many years of experience and concrete results in working with adults and young people.

What is our work based on and what do you get in cooperation with us?
Our work is essentially based on the knowledge that our reality is a perfect reflection of ourselves and that the key to everything we want to create in our lives is deep personal transformative change and directed action in accordance with it. That golden key that opens all the doors for you is already in your pocket and our role is to remind you how to use it in an enlightened way on every occasion, in the specific areas we will work on.

How do we know we are on the right way?
We left the leadership to our hearts, which we trust unconditionally, and the coincidence of the common vision and selected topics with the predictions of global trends in adult education for 2024 firmly anchors us in our direction. See for yourself on these examples:
- Lifelong learning
- Mental health and well-being
- Financial challenges
- Hybrid learning (live & online)
- Team work and development of communication skills
- Discreet mentoring that supports independent work
- Challenges as motivation
- Global and interregional cooperation
- Global online communities
- Sustainability and care for the environment.

Where and how do we realize our programs?
In the first phase, we decided to work live in our Center and on our ecological Permaculture Estate in the village of Marindvor near the town of Požega, while additional content and programs accompanying the workshops and trainings can be found on our online platform " Everchanging Me".
