what About me

As a part of a pre-study of my final project at the social innovation leadership school, the KaosPilots in Denmark,in cooperation with Social Lab, I am going to Athens for 5 weeks to perform a Theory U-based action learning process in order to learn about social transformation in Greece and how a mayor intervention best could be co-design with local partners to channel local and global energy into constructive change-event in spring 2013, at Acropolis.

Together with me I will have a film-maker who is documenting the climate for social innovation together with collecting inspiring stories from great initiatives from around Greece. Then we will digest the material into a story leading into a concrete solution and project.

On this site I will keep you updated about great stories from Greece as well as show you how I work to take a dream into reality.
I would like to come in contact with people, organizations and initiatives who are driving social change in Athens at he moment and need your help to make this works as valuable as possible.

Additionally I’m interested in  positive stories emerging from Greece that can inspire the world through video-documentary as well as by designing a local replicable learning-journey showing the best Athens has to offer.

Best spring wishes from a sunny Aarhus, Denmark
