We are now in the ideation phase of the design thinking process. That means our teams are spending their time researching in order to later synthesize solutions for their project partners. Our teams continue to work on the following challenges, proposed by their project partners.
Alba: How can ALBA's social sports idea expand to other cities by effectively communicating with different types of sports clubs?
Circulate: How can Circulate make its impact tangible to elevate it’s user-experience?
WunderTree: What new city/cities/regions can WunderTree expand to and how can they be entered, taking into account financial considerations, time constraints and personal resources? The aim is to increase positive environmental impacts, WunderTree business growth, and maintaining the company's core values
Wir Machen Welle: How can Wirmachenwelle expand their organizational structure by creating a community of supporters in order to be more attractive for sponsors?
Sichere Zuflucht: How can Sichere Zuflucht reach and engage the different stakeholders in order to create a synergy of cooperation amongst them?
Two of our teams are looking for support in finding interviewees -- a task made more difficult by the current lockdown. If you have contacts who are a) landlords and people renting holiday homes in the region of Germany, or b) People living in Germany that identified themselves as “greenies” (highly environmentally conscious),please write email@example.com@180dc.orgrespectively.
Did you know we have a podcast? We explore management and societal topics for entrepreneurs and social impact organisations! For our first episode, Alejandro Reyes joins us to talk about the relevance of Emotional Intelligence. "You open the faucet, and if you open it very wide open, then there is a lot of water that is going to come. Sometimes what you want is only a little bit of water. The same thing happens with emotions – you can train yourself to manage the emotions you are having in the moment, according to the necessity of the situation."Check out Channel 180 on Podbean or Spotify!
As always, please ensure you are following our branch on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, you’ll be able to see highlights of our workshops and members of each consulting team! Feel free to reach out via email with questions or to get involved. Thank you for your continued support for the 180 DC Berlin branch! Sincerely, The 180 DC Berlin Executive Team
