Your imp!act bootcamp!
You sense that the world needs more meaningful spaces where people gather, exchange, dream, prototype and change themselves and their world together? You are motivated to unveil the potential of youth in your city by organizing your own imp!act event? Then the (r)evolution lab is made for you! We’re looking for (un)reasonably motivated pioneers who want to co-shape an unprecedented movement by spreading imp!act and imp!act+ events in Switzerland and all over the world.
(r)evolution lab is an innovative and experiential train-the-trainers programme, spread over 6 months, that accompanies and prepares you together with like-minded people for organising and facilitating an imp!act or imp!act+ event in your neighborhood, city or company. During two training weekends you will experience the key attitudes, skills and knowledge to create your event, including teambuilding and project management, leadership, inclusion, programme design, facilitation and wellbeing strategies. You'll also directly experience an innovative working culture based on co-creation, safe space, radical collaboration, stretching boundaries, and daring to try (and fail).
Thanks to a collaboration (read more about it here) with BE YOU NETWORK, the participants can choose between organising an imp!act around social and environmental topics OR they can join the imp!act+ team which will put a specific focus on Gender and LGBTI projects. All participants will go together through the (r)evolution lab programme and eventually divide into imp!act and imp!act+ teams.
Why should you participate?
- You learn and experiment a wide range of highly professionally valued skills and knowledge (team building, project and team management, programme design, facilitation, fundraising, financial management)
- You experience whole-person, inclusive, human-centered and experiential methods.
- You become part of the euforia international network of likeminded, inspiring changemakers.
- You create a unique experience for yourself and other young people towards their way to Social Entrepreneurship.
