Engaging the unengaged in social and environmental issues

euforia engages the unengaged, transforms our education system and connects people who would usually not meet, across sectors and generations. We do so by providing fun events and trainings, which inspire and empower people to move from passiveness and good intentions to activeness and change-making.

The Problem

euforia addresses today’s most pressing social, environmental and economic challenges, by engaging the unengaged! 

Today only the potential of a minority (10 - 30%) is unleashed to actively engage in innovating our society, economy and environment. Our vision is to empower the majority of people moving from the role of victims to the role of actors. We want to tip the systems to implement innovative solutions to the aging society, migration etc.

The Solution

With the support of renowned international experts, we developed highly engaging event-trainings that offer young people and executives unique learning opportunities. We create a non-hierarchical safe space to jointly succeed, fail and reflect on their learnings from "trying out" changemaking. We challenge their preconceived notions about their own (in)ability to drive change through concrete, seemingly "impossible" tasks like building their own social venture in 3 days. This allows individuals and diverse groups to overcome their own cynicism, doubt and lethargy in order to unleash their full change-maker potential.
