New methods for a new world.
In 2016, the Impulse Boost Camp took place for the very first time. What was before known as the Seminar „Fit for the future“, was then redeveloped into a seminar for 20 young people that are voluntary active in their communities. Together we explored relevant skills an approaches to be active in society, to lead a group with ease and to find our what our strengths and challenges in life are. For the first time participants from Tunisia and the Netherlands contributed with their experiences from their daily work at the Tunisian project „Youth Can“, that empowers young people in or for politics and „Love Foundation“, an international network that organises cultural events of which 80% are donated to Water-Projects in Kenia. The Impulse Boost Camp is not only a „Think Tank“ but a „Think and Do Tank“ because the participants took all skills with them to build their own social project.
