Welcome Bruno!

IMG_8587.jpg

Dear community, 

My name is Bruno and I am 24 years old for a few more days ;)
I was born on June 1st, 1993 in the city of Calvin and grew up in the small town of Nyon. I had the chance to study in several cities in Switzerland and abroad such as in Denmark and Canada. In September 2017, I obtained my Bachelor in Business Administration. I am now taking a Master’s degree with a focus on entrepreneurship and innovation at the School of Management of Fribourg. Indeed, innovation and new technologies have always fascinated me. In addition, I have the dream of starting my own venture, through which, I wish to defend my convictions and promote values such as social and environmental responsibility, authenticity and transparency.

I like to spend most of my free time traveling around Switzerland and the world. Speaking of, the above photo was taken in Iceland. I really appreciate discovering new places and meeting new people who inspire me and make me grow. Throughout my experiences and encounters, I have developed a resilient character and feel ready to face any challenge.

Joining the euforia team is an incredible opportunity for me to meet enthusiastic changemakers and passionate people in an innovative environment. I look forward to meeting all those who make up the community and contribute to the success of this euphoric family.

Inspiration? Networking? Fun? Imp!act!!!

11 IMG_1563.JPG

I very recently attended the imp!act in Bern. I participated because I am starting an internship at euforia and this workshop was a great opportunity to observe and understand how the imp!act and euforia work. 
I must admit, that at first I felt a little bit lost. I felt as though my motivation -understanding euforia- was different from those who participated in the imp!act because they had an idea in mind which they wanted to turn into a specific project. However, this feeling went away very quickly. I realized that even without an idea for a project in mind, the imp!act is not only fun but also inspiring. 
When I look at the problems of the world, I often feel helpless. The problems seem so huge, and I so small. What could I possibly do? This feeling of hopelessness went away during the imp!act. I realized that change at first starts on a small scale. You do not have to have the one perfect solution. You simply have to start somewhere. Only through giving an idea a try, you will see if the idea works. From there, you can adapt your idea again and again until you make the impact that you want to make. 
The imp!act is about brainstorming, being creative together and receiving the tools to implement ideas, and of course about having fun! The facilitators did a great job sharing their knowledge with us and keeping us motivated with energizers, incredible food and
drinks ;) 
Also, we were provided with an impressing network of amazing changemakers who shared their experiences with us and advised us on our ideas. 
I was deeply impressed by the atmosphere that was created, a space of co-working, inspiration and also networking. The imp!act is really for everyone, for those who have concrete ideas, as well as for those who seek motivation. 

You want to share this experience? Participate in the next imp!act taking place in Zürich (in German) from June 20-23 or in Saint Julien en Genevois (in French) from June 27-30. 

Welcome Lucas!

20170902_190635-01.jpeg

Grützi everyone! My name is Lucas, but friends also call me Lupo. I am 27 years old and I was born in Cologne in Germany. I would describe myself as an analytical thinker, as I love structure, numbers and finding the so called “facts”, but I also have a strong connection with my heart and values ;) My energy is driven and turbulent when motivated to reach goals and grounded in times of contemplation and rest. Also, I am an outgoing and open-minded person who is interested in meeting people from heart to heart. 

I love exploring the world and seeing all its different beautiful places. It became clear to me that I wanted to do something so that it stays this beautiful. Thus, I decided to study Energy- and Environmental Technologies in Hamburg in order to work in the field of renewable Energy in the future. 

Well to be honest the engineering studies at a conservative university did not really drive my passion. I escaped to go surfing with friends as often as I could. Also, green energy is just not enough to bring a sustainable change, because it is us who really have to reinvent the way we live on this planet.

After my bachelor thesis I took another journey of 8 months to South America to learn Spanish, but mostly to find my purpose again and to learn how to decelerate life and let things fall into place naturally and it worked quite well. I am usually late now and before working there is always time for chats and food ;) By the way the photo was taken in one of the driest spots on Earth, the Atacama dessert. In the rare event of rain it starts blossoming and showing sheer endless patches of flowers.

My Master’s degree in International Management and Engineering is almost finished. The subjects of Project Management and Marketing gave me the opportunity to get to know more proactive topics and to keep in mind the most important factor for me - the people. Recently my best friend told me about euforia and what it stands for. It strongly resonated with my heart and I put all my intentions towards starting an internship here. Really, I was super euforic and I saw it as my escape route out of engineering. Luckily my wishes were heard and a new exciting chapter with this amazing team of changemakers and visionaries has started. I can’t wait to contribute with you!

Welcome Clara!

WhatsApp Image 2018-05-09 at 17.10.00.jpeg

My name is Clara and I am 25 years old. I grew up in the beautiful city Regensburg, and spent my last five years in Freiburg, Germany, where I finished my Bachelor degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences. My study program was really inspiring and mind opening to me in many regards. After graduating I was thus in search for an institution that strives towards making a societal change. It is through a very good friend of mine that I heard of euforia. She participated in the imp!act a few years ago and she still feels enthusiastic about this experience. After attending myself I understand why. So instead of moving closer again to my family, as I anticipated, I decided to come to Zürich instead in order to be able to work in this productive, innovative and optimistic atmosphere. I am so happy to be part of the euforia team as an intern, to learn new things, meet great people, to be open minded and to make an impact myself.
