You cannot change Europe on your own. You always need partners in crime.
So, here are some of MOSAIK’s partners that have helped making our projects come true.
ÖGfE is the Austrian Society for European Politics and, as an independent association, informs about European integration and current issues in EU politics that are relevant to Austria.
ÖGfE has partnered with MOSAIK’s cardgame COME ON OVER for the online photo-competition “#wobistjetzt” in which pupils get to name their favourite European countries to travel to.
Impact Hub Scaling is a program that supports 100 social entrepreneurs to scale-up locally or internationally through 8 Impact Hubs across Europe.
Within one year, a team of top mentors supports entrepreneurs to acquire the skills they require to successfully scale their Enterprise, drive social innovation forward and create positive impact.
This is what we would like to recommend: Projects & initiatives that have come up with creative and innovative ideas. Promising examples of European media. Events you should check out. Competitions that could finance your next project. Organisations with valuable inputs and/ or new approaches on the topic of Europe.
And sources of inspiration – because quite often, this is all we need…
