Who we are
euforia is an independent, youth-driven social innovation enterprise. We believe that the world needs more people who come together to imagine, design, and implement bold solutions to today’s most pressing social, environmental and economic challenges. That is why we engage the unengaged, transform our education system and connect people who would usually not meet, across generations, business and civil society. We do so by providing fun events and trainings that inspire and empower people to move from passiveness and good intentions to activeness and changemaking.
Our goal by 2020 is to have massively scaled this approach, having an impact on over 10 million young people globally. We envision that by the 2030s this youth-led movement will have transformed social change into the desired lifestyle of our times.
With the support of renowned international experts, we have developed engaging events and trainings that offer young people and executives unique learning opportunities. We introduce participants to changemaking by having them meet real-world young people whose engagement has made a tangible difference in their community. We create a unique, non-hierarchical safe space to jointly succeed, fail and reflect on their learnings. We challenge their preconceived notions about their own (in)ability to drive change through concrete, seemingly "impossible" tasks like building an own social venture in 3 days.
To do so effectively, we employ a holistic mix of state-of-the-art and high-impact collaboration methodologies, such as experience-driven and transformative learning, facilitation, design thinking, coaching, team building and rapid prototyping. This allows individuals and diverse groups to overcome their own cynicism, doubt and lethargy so as to unleash their full changemaker potential.
