3 years ago, I started to work on a book project called “The hitchhiker’s guide to social change”. I would like to bring this book in your hands and in the hands of change makers.
This book is meant to help people who have an envy to start a social initiative, accompany them in these critical first steps of building their project. By splitting this process in diverse simple and creative steps it is possible to make it accessible to all and bring a tool to build a social project and avoid diverse traps such as wrong assumptions or negative side effects of the project.
The method can be used and applied through workshops, and used as a support and tool to be used by the participants after a workshop.
I need your help for the crowd funding campaign to be a success and realize my dream of making this tool accessible to all. The future profits from the book will allow us to finance the development of JuHu (a social enterprise I started with my partner Elina in Latvia http://fb.com/juuuuhuuuu).
HOW CAN YOU HELP ME :
1: BACK THE PROJECT kisskissbankbank
10-15€ is already helping, the more backers the more the project attracts attention.
2: Share the project through you network (The book is both in English & French)
3: Share the project on facebook // twitter // google // at your workplace // in your school // …
Below you will find more informations about the project and some excerpt of the book (english version).
The book will lead you through four steps :
step 1: “Myself & my dreams”
step 2: “Reality check & personal twist”
step 3: “co-creation & resource mining”
step 4: “co-creation & critical feedback”
In this book I have combined diverse existing methodology amongst them:
– Tools I have been using during trainings on intercultural topics (AFS, EFIL, intercultur, …)
– Tools derivated from designthinking & human centered design
– Tools developed throughout the project
Warm Hugs From Riga !
