Last week 26 student teams from across Europe (including our Swiss winners TawiPay, RADiesli and Not quite your average kitchen) met in Vienna for the Vision Workshop to collaborate and brainstorm to develop visions for their social enterprises.

The Social Impact Award winners are student social entrepreneurs from 8 European countries and are dedicating their summer vacation to new solutions to societal problems. In 2 busy days, the students were grilled on their projects, received constructive feedback, inputs on media tools, and had fun imagining newspaper headlines 5 years down the road. Whether someone wins the Nobel Peace Prize or not, it was exciting to see the potential benefits coming to society in the next months and years.

The teams from all countries were quite impressive, whether they are working with disabled athletes in Austria, improving the blood supply system in Greece, integrating mentally disabled people into social networks in Czech Republic, or fighting food waste in Switzerland.

We look forward to watching the projects and entrepreneurs develop and are excited about the months ahead!
