14 oct How Migrant Entrepreneurship could shape Good Long-Term Economic Growth of Europe

Umesh Mukhi, Founding Director, Sustainable Leadership Initiative,

The migrant crisis has been one of the most prominent issues faced by European Union. I think its crucial to find change-makers who are trying to create significant social impact by training migrants to become competitive work force for EU. I had a chance to meet Yannick Le Guern & Laura Petrache and ask them few questions about their initiative MIGRANT INTEGRATION LAB which aims to resolve such complex issue. I hope readers would be able to draw some inspiration and insights to follow their path.

  • The project seems to be very unique, can you share with us about what were the key motivators to pursue Migrant Lab?

Yes, indeed it actually is and not seems to be . As I encountered some of the issues that migrants are encountering now days and after an experience in Syrian ground, I wanted to build together with Yannick the co-founder of MIGRANT INTEGRATION LAB, a global European device permitting the sustainable integration of migrants and ethnic minorities. For us a welcoming culture is one that contributes by helping migrants, newcomers and their families overcome obstacles in all areas of life, while also providing business start-up assistance and targeted employment. This is why we facilitate and foster economic and social integration of migrants by supporting them in the development of new business initiatives.

01 oct Exciting New Partnership Announcement B1-AKT – Sciences-Po Refugee Help

Migrant Integration Lab- Sustainable Solutions and B1-AKT-Leading Sustainable Strategies & Paragon Communication are pleased to announce Sciences Po Refugee Help Leading Partnership.

Sciences Po Refugee Help is a student association working to uphold the rights of refugees and asylum seekers in France through short and long-term aid and integration.

Born in September 2015, at the heavily mediatised peak of the European refugee crisis, their goal was first and foremost to bring emergency humanitarian aid to street camps and housing centres in the Île de France region. Since, the association has also started working towards longer-term initiatives, specifically regarding the integration of asylum seekers and refugees.

23 juin B1-AKT for Social Innovation – To Tackle Fuel Poverty

 « B1-AKT is  Joining Ashoka, Schneider Electric Foundation and Enel for Social Innovation »

Fuel poverty has become a major problem in Europe. There are between 50 and 125 million people who struggle every day to ensure adequate heating, light, and cooking power in their dwelling at an affordable price (European Parliamentary Research Service). This has a severe impact on their health and wellbeing. Creative and systems-changing solutions are needed to transform this issue in an opportunity for these people to thrive.

After a successful partnership in 2015-2016, the Schneider Electric Foundation, under the aegis of the Fondation de France, and Ashoka, have renewed their commitment to helping improve the living conditions of millions of people facing fuel poverty in Europe.

It is by offering support to the most innovative social entrepreneurs in Europe that we can help entire communities tackle fuel poverty and move towards energy sustainability. The 2017-2018 edition is realised in partnership with Enel and B1-AKT .

heroes and friends impact hub le guern petrache social entrepreneuship sustainable communities crowdfunding

B1-AKT met the founders of Heroes and Friends, Tim & Menno Manschot in Amsterdam.

 

They are contributing into building a better world by revolutionizing crowdfunding.

 

http://www.heroesandfriends.com

Tim & Menno Manschot told us:

« We see the dawn of an awesome world. Informal initiatives share stuff and skills to solve minor and major problems. People are participating in projects that make a better tomorrow, because they inherently want to do good. A collaborative and direct economy bypassing old conventional systems is rising; initiatives like  AirBnB, BlaBlaCar, Etsy, Kickstarter, Peerby, TaskRabbit, TransferWise, Uber,and VandeBron are here and happening.

We build our platform of Heroes & Friends to better serve this change. Our crowdsourcing tool surpasses the standard by being based on that same direct economy.
