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!

P.S. Call for Speakers closes on April 4!

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!

What is MakeSense all about?

Sometimes it’s not easy to keep an overview of all the wonderful videos/tumblrs/articles/links that are part of the MakeSense ecosystem. This is my attempt at a collection. Please feel free to add other links!

The newest MakeSense video is a great introduction (thx, Videaux):

Christian explains the Hold-Up:

Two videos from SenseCamp Berlin 2013:

Article on SenseCamp Wiesbaden (with Prof. Yunus), with a video in French (below) and in German (click):

Is the SenseCamp London 2013 video the best SenseCamp video ever? You be the judge!

To date, SenseCamps have happened in Berlin (2012 & 2013), London (2012 & 2013), Paris (2012 & 2013), Kuala Lumpur (2012), Wiesbaden (2013), Barcelona (2013), São Paulo (2013), and Singapore (2013).

Sense SpinOffs

SenseSchool is one of the projects that has come out of the MakeSense ecosystem:

Other spin-offs include the SenseCube, a co-working & incubation space, CommonsSense, an innovation consulting enterprise, MKS Fest, events that bridge social entrepreneurship and the arts, and Disco Soupe, a movement to fight/dance/cook against food waste.

SenseTours

Fanny and Matteo explain the SenseTour Europe 2013 (probably still the funniest video!) - and on the website, you can check out their final presentation:

Video from the Mediterranean SenseTour 2013 (check out their final presentation with surprising insights):

Press

MakeSense has been featured and mentioned in numerous articles, such as e.g. in Wired, the Guardian, Le Monde (french), Libération (french), Youphil (french), etc.

To the future!

In 2013, Christian Vanizette became an Ashoka fellow for co-creating MakeSense - so this global movement will be booming even more now!

In the end, a small message from the most prominent MakeSense fan, Prof. Muhammad Yunus:

the misfit economy: looks like a pretty interesting documentary on black and gray markets solving challenges around the world! if you’re interested in innovation, there should be lots of lessons to learn.

3 more days till SenseCamp Europe where the MakeSense gang meets Prof. Yunus!

This video trailer was created with footage from SenseCamp Berlin by Stan from the Berlin gang.

Trailer for Kenny's upcoming documentary “Be a Changemaker”: First footage from his 7-month social innovation trip to Europe and Africa!

This is such an awesome piece of work: highly inspiring and it sent a shiver down my back! It was great to see a bunch of familiar faces as well!

awesome playbook from the sandbox network. highly recommendable, lots of great advice for changemakers.

pretty awesome: a bike made out of cardboard - for less than $10! it’s strong enough for a person as heavy as 300 pounds, resists water & humidity, and it doesn’t look all to bad either! (thx, reset!)
