Anthropological insights based organization, which helps to understand human behaviour, motivations and systematic relations in order to contribute to a more sustainable and socially responsible society and solutions of various sectors.

Activities and Services


We help to answer the questions how? and why? We collect data and conduct research using qualitative methods - ethnography, observation, focus groups, interviews. Such methods help to reveal not only what people are saying, but what they are doing and what they are saying they are doing. It is here that the most valuable insights are discovered helping to shape a strategy, policy or service and ensuring that the experiences and needs of the subjects are brought out.

Consultancy and Data Analysis

We consult on true example based presentations - ethnography and academic literature. Also, we make data analysis with qualitative insights.Our goal is to provide research and academic insights in a simple and the most meaningful way, without overloading with long reports and multi-page information, but adapting it as easy-to-use information.

Education and Social Projects

Based on anthropological knowledge, we make workshops and seminars for different age groups in schools, cultural and educational institutions, companies and events. In this way, we seek to make academic knowledge more accessible, encourage constructive discussion on relevant issues and together search for solutions. We also implement various social projects and cooperate with other non-governmental or cultural organizations.

Fieldwork Notes

[LT] Energija, kurią išmetame: maistas ir klimato kaita

Visi šioje planetoje valgome, tačiau kaip gauname maistą, ką laikome maistu ir kaip jį vartojame skiriasi bei keitėsi per istoriją. Per maistą atsiskleidžia socialiniai, kultūriniai ir ekonominiai kontekstai, o kalbėdami apie maisto produkciją galime suprasti, ką kiekvieno mūsų pasirinkimai reiškia ekosistemai ir kokią reikšmę turi klimato kaitai.


[LT] Mokslas, kuris tiria ar/ir daro pokytį?

Ar tikrai tyrėjų vieta apsiriboja vien universitetu? Juk socialinių mokslų žinias galima pritaikyti ir paversti ir konkrečiais veiksmais. Kaip ne tik tirti, bet ir kurti pokytį visuomenėje, pritaikant akademijoje sukauptas žinias?
