  • Impact Hub Basel - Incubator
    Unlike many other incubators, Impact Hub Basel Incubator will not be a program supporting entrepreneurs in the idea stage, but rather provide follow-on support to startups that have completed a first-stage incubation program or have accessed the market in any other form already. In most cases, the startups cannot afford their own office space at this time, nor do they have the financial means for experts to advise them in this phase on solving the upcoming challenges. By offering a follow-on solution for the startups concerned, Impact Hub Basel would like overcome this gap. Click here for more information.

  • SCI Switzerland - Join the training "Climate beyond individual Action - how to organize young people for climate justice", 18 - 24 October 2019 in Kagel, Germany
    As Greta Thunberg and the other inspiring organisers of the Fridays for Future school strikes have shown, youth are more than willing to step up for their future! This trend is not only a chance to turn the wheel on politics and businesses, so that we can prevent at least some of the horrible consequences of climate change. It is also a trend to get young people politicized, to get young people to organize themselves to step up for what they believe in. In this training, 33 participants of climate justice organisations and peace/volunteering organisations from 15 European countries will come together to learn from each other in how to organize youth, how to do activism for climate justice and how we can mobilize more young people into the climate justice movement. All costs (participation fee, transportation, hosting etc.) are covered by Movetia. Here for more information or contact Loretta.

  • SCI Switzerland - Peace Training "Youth4Remembrance - Sharing tools how to encourage millennials to critically reflect o European history", 31 Oct - 6 Nov 2019
    In times of right-wing populism and neo-fascism rising to the political mainstream in Europe, it is important to remember our past and to learn from the mistakes our ancestors have done. We need to remember war, racism, colonialism and authoritarian regimes in our own past. However, the generations that have witnessed for example National Socialism, Colonialism and the wars of the past are slowly disappearing. This means that young people themselves nowadays need to find new approaches of doing remembrance and answer, how can remembrance help to deal with the challenges of the present and what are challenging topics of today (right wing movement, climate justice crisis). Peace and remembrance organisations need to find new approaches of reaching young people, in order to promote this. All costs (participation fee, transportation, hosting etc.) are covered by Movetia. Here for more information or contact Loretta.

    As part of the "Enterprising Africa" symposium, Helvetas is examining the prospects for the economic development of a young population and discussing with various experts how Africa's economic potential can be unleashed.

  • Performance mit Chor zu sexueller Gewalt an Frauen* - Open Call
    Für eine Performance, welche einen Chor beinhaltet, suche ich Menschen jeglichen Alters und Hintergrunds, die non-binär sind oder sich als Frauen* identifizieren und mit Männern* eine Beziehung haben/hatten. Die Arbeit dreht sich um sexuelle Gewalt in heterosexuellen* Paarbeziehungen. Der Chor soll aus möglichst diversen Menschen bestehen, um zu zeigen, dass Gewalt an Frauen* in Beziehungen überall vorkommt. Singerfahrungen sind keine gefordert, da wir nicht singen, sondern stöhnen werden. Die Performance versucht somit einen dysfunktionalen Sexualakt mit dem Verlauf einer sich in eine Gewaltspirale begebenden Beziehung in Verbindung zu bringen. Sexualität ist ein Teil der meisten Paarbeziehungen, doch wegen der starken Tabuisierung von Sex selbst, dem Verständnis davon, für wen Sex ist und dem Umgang mit dem noch immer mit Scham behafteten weiblichen Körper wird selten über Sex innerhalb von Paarbeziehungen gesprochen, was die Gewalt in diesem Bereich oft noch unsichtbarer macht.

    Wir proben am 15., 22., 24. und 29. Oktober in Zürich, die Aufführungen werden voraussichtlich am 5. und 23. November und 8. und 16. Dezember in verschiedenen Schweizer Städten stattfinden. Ich würde mich sehr darüber freuen, noch weitere Menschen für das Projekt begeistern zu können. Bei Interesse bitte bei mir melden, damit wir mal telefonieren oder uns treffen können, um weitere Details über das Projekt zu besprechen.
    Auch bei Fragen oder Anregungen bitte einfach schreiben: amanda.e.metzger@gmail.com.
