The participants got to learn about social entrepreneurship in Brussels and took part in a series of workshops aiming to combine a caring approach with a business approach. The first day a seed was planted as they identified 4 projects through a hackathon that will be developed in the future namely:
– Cleaning the oceans, rivers and land: How might we use technology and change consumption habits to reach a wasteless planet and clean up the damage already done by 2028 without negative social impact
– Digital Divide: How might we support the slow technology adapters towards being aware and integrated with the technological development
– SMARTphone Fest: How can we organise a festival that promotes the responsible use of smartphones
– How might we raise awareness and action to impower small farmers in Macedonia to create new products and enter the European market
The second day the soil was prepped through a series of workshops and the ideas were fertilised by getting feedback on the identified projects from locals and travelers.
On the last day of the Convention the projects germinated on a local festival about social entrepreneurship and farmers and the projects were pitched to each other and to locals.
We hope the projects take root in the future and help lead the change towards a more caring society!
