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!

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?]

last saturday, it was time for another silent climate parade in berlin. it was simply wonderful, and i think the video shows it: beautiful people dancing for a more beautiful world.

August 24, Berlin, Ku’damm - The Silent Climate Parade is back!

The Silent Climate Parade is a demonstration in Berlin to raise awareness about urgent need to solve the climate change problem. With wireless headphones, quality DJs on electromobiles, signs, flyers, choreographies, and lots of enthusiasm, we dance silently through the streets in a fun, colorful and inspiring action to catch people’s attention. We do this to show that it’s possible to have fun, be climate friendly, and make a political statement at the same time. Let’s get moving!

How did it all start? You can read the story of the SCP on our website.

And we need your support: We’re crowdfunding on betterplace to make this day possible again. Can you help us to organize the best Silent Climate Parade ever? Could you donate/reblog/share/like/tweet our campaign? THANKS!!

By the way, there will also be a SCP in Essen just a week later!

In February, we organized SenseCamp Berlin: With more than 200 social entrepreneurship enthusiasts and the MakeSense gang, we had a full day of workshops, talks, discussions, and laughs!

It’s an amazing community full of energy and passion - I highly recommend you check out a SenseCamp and see for yourself!
