imp!act St Julien - what, why and how

At the end of Imp!act Geneva 2018, several participants undertook to replicate the event in their city, Saint-Julien-en-Genevois (France), in order to share with others their unforgettable experience. The seven highly motivated volunteers, supported by the city and several organizations, organized an Imp!act which attracted sixteen participants aged 16 to 30 from a wide variety of backgrounds. The event was a real success. Over the course of the experiment, team spirit has grown steadily among the participants. All share the will to act for a better world. Imp!act St-Julien will have allowed the emergence of four social and environmental projects. We thank all the volunteers, participants, experts and juries for their enthusiasm, kindness and commitment.

imp!act Zürich - Butter bei die Fische geben

IMG-20180705-WA0004.jpg

Impact ist ein dreieinhalbtägiger Workshop. Dabei treffen Leute zusammen, die soziale, ökologische oder ökonomische Herausforderungen angehen wollen. Durch die Facilitators von euforia werden, innerhalb dieser kurzen Zeit, starke Teams, die am Ende zusammen eine Projektidee pitchen. Dabei werden sie von Experten aus der Wirtschaft und Changemakern die bereits eigene Projekte realisiert haben gecoacht. Besonders interessant ist der Validation-Day an dem alle Teams die Chance haben raus zu gehen und in Unternehmen oder mit Passanten auf der Straße einen Reality-Check zu machen. In meinem Team haben wir Guerillainterviews geführt. Wir sind einfach zu NGOs in Zürich gegangen und haben in Gesprächen von 15-30 Minuten wertvolle Insights gewinnen können. Dabei war ich selber super überrascht, auf wie viel Hilfsbereitschaft wir mit dieser spontanen Herangehensweise gestoßen sind.

Am letzten Tag mussten wir die gewonnenen Eindrücke und Informationen strukturieren und einer Jury präsentieren. Sie bestand aus zwei Senior Consultants und einem Vizedirektor einer Züricher Bank. Es ging also wirklich um die Wurst. Am Ende haben wir wertvolles Feedback bekommen und waren startklar das Projekt tatsächlich zu realisieren. Ich kann das imp!act nur empfehlen. Jeder, der gerne die Ärmel hochkrempeln und Butter bei die Fische geben will sollte hingehen. Sei es bereits mit einer Idee oder nur mit dem Willen was zu verändern. Denn das Impact ist ein richtiger Inkubator für Changemaker.

Welcome Sonia!

FB_IMG_1528803629580.jpg

Hello everyone, I am Sonia! I am 27 years old and was born in France, near Paris.

I have always loved traveling as my parents are Spanish and since I was a child, we would always go to Spain to spend all our holidays. When I grew up, I decided to study a Master in Controlling and I had the opportunity to travel in Sweden for my Erasmus, in London for an internship as well as in Brussels for my last year internship. When I was in Sweden, I spent most of my time traveling around Sweden and abroad, for example in Norway, Finland, and Estonia. I had the chance to visit Lapland and to do some dogsledding, snowmobile and even jump into frozen water inside a sauna. Unfortunately, I missed the northern lights and I am desperate to go back to be able to see some!  

Then, after my experience in Brussels, I quit everything in order to move to Switzerland and start working for international companies in the private sector in controlling and supply chain. After a while, I became vegetarian as I always loved animals and I was also very sensitive about the environment. I lived most of the time with one or two dogs, a turtle and a rabbit at my parent's home.

In 2017 I could not stand to work for a company that did not share my values and I decided to follow my passion and my dreams. I constantly felt that I could be more useful in our world. This is why I looked for a job at a non-profit organization and when I found euforia, this was the perfect opportunity! Euforia is my dream organization as it has a real impact in the world, it helps finding great solutions to our current challenges and share my values.
