Why SLX?

We believe in the transformative power of learning and exchange. Learning goes beyond access to knowledge. Learning happens where there is community. Communities that thrive are those that are built on the foundation of trust and exchange. Exchange of ideas, people and culture that drive our economy and society. 

We think of ourselves not as solution providers, but as catalysts that drive us towards a more sustainable and equitable planet. As catalysts, our tools and platforms help transform lives through building learning communities.

Our Teams

Our platforms utilize a rich mix of inter-disciplinary skills from community management, educational media and technology. We work in small teams with each team member having a specialization in one of the three key areas outlined above and an interest and some skills in the other.  

However, the skill we value most is a passion for supporting others in building purpose driven communities. 

As an organization devoted to learning, we practice what we preach. If you like learning new skills and sharing your current skills, you will find yourself at home at SLX. 

Life at SLX

The culture of SLX is one of learning, collaboration, community and inclusiveness. We value honesty and openness to new experiences. No one at SLX does only one thing and no one is only interested in one thing. While we all have different specialized skills, we are always encouraged to learn new ones.

By Learners, for Learners

SLX Anecdotes

To get a feel for what it's like to work at Swiss Learning Exchange, here are some anecdotes from our team members...
  • One of my favourite things about working at SLX is that you get to learn so many new and unexpected things along the way. Often literally; Every time we drive to the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meetings in Davos, we have several hours of travel time in which I get to discuss the most wide-ranging and interesting things with my colleagues. Everyone is knowledgable about different things and everyone is curious to learn from each other. I, for one, taught my colleagues how to navigate the snowy and frozen streets of Davos without falling over like a Californian billionaire.

  • The first thing I noticed when I joined Swiss Learning Exchange (SLX) is that you have complete freedom and independence. Liberty to explore new topics, suggest innovative ideas and experiment with new mini projects. There is also this feeling of community among the people I work with. There is always someone to give you feedback, help you complete tasks or simply act as your soundboard. For someone who loves working with communities, this has been an amazing experience for me. SLX also has what I call an open culture. Everyone is given a voice to share their unique talents, knowledge and experience. I personally have used this selfishly to learn new skills from my colleagues.

  • Great part of working with SLX is you get to learn a lot of new things and explore more! It is great to be a part of this wonderful team. Everyone has great knowledge in their respective roles, we learn a lot from each other. Sustainability which is an interesting subject for me has been given a lot of importance here. I enjoy these types of conversation, it helps me expand my knowledge on sustainability. Being in the creative team, there is a lot of freedom to represent the content creatively and visually appealing, which is the best part of my role. For someone who loves to work with knowledgeable and friendly work environment, this has been an amazing experience for me.
    Sanuth, Creative Team
  • One thing that inspires me is to serve communities and I have a belief that the best innovation happens within the community and by the community. I have a very diverse background - from being a mechanical engineer as well as being a development professional in the social sector. I got a chance to visit and study social dynamics and technological interventions in rural areas . At SLX, we have very supportive team members coming from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds. Together, we work in different verticals to serve the communities in different ways. We are given opportunity to explore new things . Our goal is to benefit the society with our platforms and services that help bridge the gap between grass roots innovations and policy. The following shloka summarizes what my approach to work at SLX is . It is a couplet in Sanskrit and looks like this : ॐ सर्वेषां स्वस्तिर्भवतु सर्वेषां शान्तिर्भवतु । सर्वेषां पूर्णं भवतु सर्वेषां मङ्गलं भवतु ॥ (This Peace mantra is chanted as a prayer for all to be fortunate, attain peace, be blessed and feel a sense of completeness)
