The two-day format of the Changemakers Academy–Academy S took over Vratsa. On 11th and 12th October the Youth House brought together participants from all over Bulgaria to show that mission “Change” is possible everywhere.
Our motley Vratsa class (consisting from students of Junior Achievement to a consultant from the “Strategies and Innovation” department) was involved in the Academy S by the methods used by “Ideas Factory”. Systems thinking, World caffe, Ideas Lab – ideynitsa, empathic leadership … and a night challenge are just some of the things which the academics experienced. We also had a guest speaker, of course –from the social enterprise “Bee”, that told us more about the subtleties of the craft.
We liked Vratsa a lot. And we decided to go back and organize a Social innovation challenge for the Northwest. When, how and why – will be heard! ;)
Now we are headed to Plovdiv for Empatheast – Forum for Social Change and open education in Eastern Europe!
