interesting post-growth video: i’d almost describe it as growth-agnosticism - it simply shouldn’t matter. other things matter more.

SenseCamp Berlin 2014 - Taking Care of (Social) Business
On April 26, we are bringing SenseCamp back to Berlin. The interactive un-conference dedicated to social entrepreneurship brings together social entrepreneurs, social business enthusiasts and the global MakeSense gang for a full day of inspiring talks, interactive workshops, networking opportunities, and a lot of fun.

How can we create large-scale sustainable impact? This is this year’s central question. Social entrepreneurship is rapidly growing in popularity, and it’s time to deliver on its huge potential. Let’s roll up our sleeves and take care of (social) business!
The SenseCamp program is developed collaboratively to make use of the skills and know-how of the community and cover the interests of all participants. This blurs the traditional notions of speakers and listeners and creates a highly interactive experience of shared learning and development.
Additionally, SenseCampers have the opportunity to experience the “hold-up" - an innovation workshop - and solve a challenge of a social entrepreneur.

For people interested in starting MakeSense in their home town, there is the KickStarter program with a special workshop track (apply here by April 13!)
Whether you are a seasoned social entrepreneur or just passionate about a better world, SenseCamp is the place to discover and exchange new ideas, actionable insights and success/failure stories. And in the evening, you can shake out some moves at the infamous NonSense party!
Get your tickets now!
P.S. Call for Speakers closes on April 4!

i am not a ukranian, but i’m always with the people struggling for political freedom. powerful plea for support.

"Let now be our advent. Let us live like we meant it. Let us burn like we mean it." Shane Koyczan is a brilliant wordsmith.

Why did I just invest in Fairnopoly?

Because I want a fair and social alternative to online shopping behemoths that evade taxes, exploit social safety systems, and abuse their employees. Because when I consume, I try to do it ethically. And most of all, because I want to support a company that has fairness, openness and transparency written into its DNA. 

Felix and his team are some of the most passionate and genuine people I have met in the social business sector, and if anyone has a shot at creating a truly fair online marketplace, it’s Fairnopoly.

For as little as 50 EUR, you too can become an investor (it’s not a donation!). As an investor (‘Genosse’), you own part of the company and enjoy voting rights and a share of future profits.

I want change. I’m sick of this capitalism of exploitation. And I’m putting my money where my mouth is.

Want to join me? Be quick, there’s only 11 days left to join.

[EDIT: today they added some transparency with this photo:

ok, if you find this too mundane, how many companies do you know allow you to look at each of their bank account transactions?]

This is some seriously well-done digital journalism: An interactive experience that puts you into the shoes of a Syrian woman who becomes a refugee.
Along the way, you need to make decisions that influence the story you will experience. Can you make it to safety (i.e. asylum in the EU)?
Try. This. Out.

the kite patch offers a new way to attack the malaria/dengue/etc. problem - instead of using nets or toxic chemicals, this non-toxic patch protects a person from mosquitoes for 48 hours. pretty awesome!

Happy New Year!
