Pioneers of Change

Just recently, via Thomas Strasser, I found out about Pioneers of Change – a coaching program for young Austrians with a vision to change the world, organized by Plenum.

It’s all about sustainability, ecology, positive change and such things. They have a great network with other organizations such as SocialBusinessDay, Weisssee – Sustainability meets Entrepreneurship, The Hub and many more. They offer a program with interesting lecturers, teaching the participants about project design and management, fund raising and public relations.

I applied with as my project and was taken! I’m really looking forward now to the eight modules – first one already starting next week. I expect from the program to learn to manage even better and get some projects in the ICT4D context going. Also I am certain that this will initiate a diverse networks of people with sustainable initiatives working for a better world – social entrepreneurs if you will.

Thomas was also taken – same as Georg Urschitz who together with Thomas built up the IT course at Don Bosco School Sunyani.

So – great opportunity, great company, looking forward to it and I’ll keep you updated on my advances.
