Impulse Boost Camp 2018
7th to 15th of July,
Schneeberg, Germany

New methods for a new world.

The world is changing: Everything is complex, fast-paced, globalized and inter-connected. More than this world needs people that are not only aware of today’s social challenges, but contributes actively to a better community.  IBC is an international multiplier training, where you will find out how to contribute with more impact and at ease. Our „Think & Do Tank“ offers relevant skills and approaches of the modern working world of social change makers. During IBC we will try out project management tools, group-methods and reflect upon our personal and organisational development. We offer an international network full of opportunities.

What is the IBC?

The Impulse Boost Camp is an international training for people between 18 and 27 years who are voluntary active in civil society. We will try out project management tools, group-methods and reflect upon our personal and organisational development. Non-formal methods and the art of hosting with an innovative and interdisciplinary character will be selected for this purpose. The seminar will be shaped by the active participation of people from at least 5 different countries, so that we can share our stories and learn from each other.

After the seminar you have the chance to pass on your freshly gained knowledge to your peers at home. IBC will prepare you for this.

The Impulse Boost Camp will take place from July 7th to 15th 2018 in the countryside of Saxony, Germany (Schneeberg). We will live in a seminar house where we have our own food crew that will cook ecologically, locally and according to our needs.
