imp!act: some changes & innovations
In 2011 imp!act brought together students from Switzerland and the whole UE in Geneva. The participants could choose between 3 options. While Launch your project gave young changemakers the opportunity to benefit from 20 renowned experts’ advice and to shape their ideas into real projects within 5 days, other participants were presented during 2 days with opportunities of engagement through getting in touch with 22 NGOs and engaged youngsters at Get involved. Finally, Show up allowed interested people to participate at workshops e.g. and get some information.
New in 2012!! imp!act splits in two ways!
Next fall, we are concentrating our crafts on Launch your project. But, don’t worry, the 2 other programs of imp!act are reappearing in spring 2013. The energy gained this way will be reinvested in a spatial duplication: immediately after Geneva, imp!act will move to Zurich for another 5 days. Both twin imp!act events will give wings to the projects created by 2×50 participants altogether!
This year is also giving imp!act a local touch, since the main languages are French and German instead of English.
