About Us


Awareness through education.

Our mission


We live in a time of upheaval, marked by major cultural, social and ecological challenges. However, the complicated global conditions we are facing today have not simply fallen from the sky, but are the result of human activity over the past centuries. Shaping the future means starting in the here and now, taking responsibility, asking the right questions and testing new ways of dealing with nature and mankind. In order to do this, we need places in which people can come together to think freely and work together interactively and interdisciplinarily. In this sense, ibugi offers a space for its staff and individual and institutional cooperation partners to ask these crucial and forward-looking questions in a new way and to jointly develop meaningful approaches in the fields of education and social innovation.

Our mission


We live in a time of upheaval and great cultural, social and ecological challenges. The often complicated global conditions that have arisen have all been created by the people themselves over the past centuries and must be seen as a consequence of their thoughts and actions. The current challenges are complex and make it necessary to rethink and ask questions, questions to which simple answers can rarely be found. For this reason, we need places where people can come together to think freely and work together interactively and interdisciplinarily. In this sense, ibugi offers a space for its staff and individual and institutional cooperation partners to ask old and new questions in a new way and to work together on meaningful solutions.

What we do


At ibugi we explore, teach and live innovation in education and society. Our staff members develop their projects in teaching and research individually and collaboratively with a high degree of personal responsibility and self-monitoring, and organise corresponding formats and events. ibugi also incorporates practical social projects, such as CeSEB, which has been established in cooperation with the degree program of Philosophy, Arts and Social Entrepreneurship at Alanus University. We set great store by individual visions and ideas, as well as effective and constructive cooperation. We organise and conduct lectures and research projects, develop further education courses, conferences and forums and advise educational institutions.
Our institute is located at the house Eutopia in the heart of Bonn.

What we do


Das ibugi ist ein Institut, in dem Innovation in Bildung und Gesellschaft erforscht, gelehrt und gelebt wird. Die Mitarbeitenden entwickeln einzeln und im Team in großer Eigenverantwortung und Selbststeuerung ihre Projekte in Lehre, Forschung und organisieren entsprechende Veranstaltungsformate und Events. Zum ibugi gehören auch sozialpraktische Projekte wie das Social and Personal Innovation (SPIN) Forum. Wir legen sowohl großen Wert auf individuelle Visionen und Entwürfe, als auch auf eine wirkungsvolle und konstruktive Zusammenarbeit. Wir führen Lehrveranstaltungen und Forschungsprojekte durch, entwickeln Weiterbildungsangebote, Tagungen und Foren und beraten Bildungseinrichtungen.
