SenseCamp is coming home: One year after we launched the first event, we’re doing it again: SenseCamp Berlin 2013!

February 9, 2013 at Social Impact Lab Berlin // (fb event)

tickets at sensecamp-berlin2013.eventbrite.com 

SenseCamp is a barcamp dedicated to social entrepreneurship: It brings together social entrepreneurs, social business enthusiasts and the MakeSense gang for one full day of inspiring talks, interactive workshops and networking.

A barcamp is a community-driven event where the agenda is set by the participants. To host a session, anybody can pitch a topic in the morning planning meeting. The format’s flexibility allows conversations to continue, intensify or refocus as needed by the participants. It blurs traditional notions of speakers and listeners and creates a highly interactive experience of shared learning and development.

The SenseCamp is also unique chance to experience the MakeSense Hold-Up format of innovation workshops for social entrepreneurs.

Whether you are a seasoned social entrepreneur or simply interested in the topic, we are building a place to discover and exchange new ideas, actionable insights and success/failure stories. In the evening, there’s also the NonSense party where you can shake out some moves!

Believe it or not – Social Business rules the World! You better join us on February 9!

zwar wird im film nicht deutlich, ob die einkäufer tatsächlich repräsentativ waren oder eher die ausnahmer darstellten, dennoch interessantes experiment.

da frage ich mich: hören die leute nicht zu, verstehen sie es nicht, oder ist es ihnen wirklich egal?

wer zeigen will dass es ihr/ihm nicht egal ist, kann morgen auf die strasse gehen:

where is home – a film exploring the identity issues of third culture kids and the most difficult question for us to answer. my answer usually depends on who is asking, but my favorite one is “where i lay my head is home.” there’s an instant connection to people who really understand that feeling. one of my favorite articles on that is zwischenmiete by brittani sonnenberg.

the film is now crowdfunding on indiegogo.

i don’t remember who i got this from – this has been on my notepad for a while – so i’m sorry for not crediting.

this video explains a big deal of my work/life philosophy – a lot of “work” advice i get is that being constantly engaged or in a ‘working’/project-mode isn’t healthy, but i think it’s exactly the opposite: if your work is such a drag that extending it into your private is unhealthy, then there’s something wrong with your work.

i love being on as long most waking hours, because i love what i do: working towards a fairer and more sustainable future. of course, there’s ups and downs involved and not every single task is something i love, but i try hard to find something positive in it all and i enjoy the bigger picture.

and of course, breaks are important, but the important part about it is that you need to engage your mind in a different way – and not dull it with some mindless activity.

videaux makes videos for social projects (non-profits, social entrepreneurs…) – these are some images of their six month filming in Haiti, Argentina, Uganda, Kenya, Bangladesh (thx, makesense)!

nice animation on how we treat the natural world (thx, esther!)

happy new year!
