#TopPinky2013 - change making moments 2013
To reflect on the events of the year, and to share some of our own most pinkylicious and precious moments 2013, we've put together a top-list - our best moments of change towards a sustainable planet 2013.
We'll share more of our change making moments with you beginning of January - because now we're looking forward to some rest and good food!
The Good Tribe - Swedish start-up of the year in Austria Reckon our surprise when we got the call from the Swedish chamber of commerce in Vienna that we'd won the (especially for us instated!) award "Swedish start-up of the year in Austria".
"It was such a lovely feeling to gain recognition from such formal institutions as the Chamber of Commerce, the Swedish Embassy and Business Sweden. I'm delighted that they appreciate the value of our (pink!) work for a sustainable planet - to the extent that they gave us an award along with influential Swedish businesses as IKEA and STS." Evelina Lundqvist
we_change: meeting thousands of youth Back in April, Sandra traveled Sweden with the we_change crew to talk and act sustainability together with thousands of Swedish high-school pupils. Together with our case partner IKEA Sweden youth explored the domain of sustainable living at home.
Listen to Sandra talk about her work.
Looking deep into all aspects of sustainable development To set up a new fresh collaboration can be a great way to reach new target groups - hence create more change. Some time during the year the idea to make a MethodKit came up, focused on sustainable development. We loved the idea, Ola Möller, founder of MethodKit loved the idea - and now we're in the process of creating such a kit. To explore the domain we've had several focus group meetings, both in Sweden and in Austria, including the 48-hour book production frenzy of the Pink guide, highlighting the most important aspects of sustainable development. Good times!
To reflect on our accomplishments (and of course also evaluate what we could improve for the future), and to be able to share these moments with you is a boost for us - and we'd love to extend that boost to you too!
