What do people do after a euforia training?
Since 2007, we have mobilised over 400 young volunteers who organised more than 150 euforia trainings and events in Switzerland, France, Greece, Austria, Germany, Albania, Rwanda, Egypt, Bolivia, Peru and Colombia. This translates into over 6'000 youths and executives having participated in our trainings.
6 months after our trainings, 50 to 70% of our participants have become more actively involved in finding local solutions to global challenges, be it
through changing their consumption habits, volunteering, or starting their own social initiatives. By inspiring their peers to take action.
Our impact was singled out by several awards, notably by Ashoka, UNESCO and the World Economic Forum. euforia was also covered by euronews, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, and the Swiss National Radio. We also created a buzz on YouTube and Facebook, spreading our changemaking movement to millions of people worldwide.
The new commitments that emerge at our trainings take various forms:
of the participants change their behavior, especially when it comes to responsible consumption, transportation or fields of studies.
join an existing initiative or organization, for example a local Red Cross or WWF chapter.
“It is impressive how people are empowered thanks to euforia’s events. You can feel it and you can measure it.”
