This is the London experience for you who run your own business, contribute in a value driven organization or is a creative freelancer who are engaged in social impact. You are ready to meet with Londoners who are creating impact in various ways and get fresh perspectives of the city.
This trip is the first of a creative exchange forum between Gothenburg and London. During this weekend we will take part in an exchange of experiences and ideas and through the carefully put-together program get new insights on how to create impact. It is going to be a trip filled with meetings with other driven women, workshops and inspirational places – but also time for reflection.
The plan is that you will leave London with loads of energy, new ideas and contacts to continue to fulfil your mission for change. Through participating you will support women with ideas in London.
THE PROGRAM INCLUDES:
· A Friday afternoon of activities in Brixton, with talks and exploration of the benefits of the female brain in the creative space. We will also get to learn more about community based initiatives in the area. This afternoon will be followed by a networking event for women.
· A Saturday exploration and walk of unexpected places in London with the aim to get new perspectives and ideas on what open inclusive spaces can do to unite society. The walk is led by a person highly engaged in creating change for Londoners.
· A Saturday evening cooking event where women chefs will share the way into leveraging the unique skills and competencies through collaboration. This evening will include talks on how to collaborate to create social impact.
· During the trip we will ask you to take part and share your drives, knowledge and challenges with the group. We will work on your ideas and drives in workshops, utilising the strength of the group to iterate and forward your ideas.
