17.blog post ENG
Hi everybody! The summer has ended and now we can sum up our results. In frames of "social innovation" project we planned that summer will be a stage for dissemination. During the summer holidays Estonian group worked hard on promotion and advertisement of the project, planning and organizing some events. During this period our team managed to make two trainings/seminars for youngsters in age 13-17 years old, one of the events was in suburban camp Vihasoo and the other one was on our NGO meet-up of members, as well as simply disseminate project idea through talking with people. Eventually, we involved around 150 people in general during the summer.
During the trainings "Social innovation", which we organized in the camp, we used many different methods, brainstorming, visual impact as videos, different presentation and simulation game. After the presentation of project Social Innovation we got a lot of feedback from teenagers. They gave us their own ideas of Social Innovations and also we, who presented the project, got lots of positive emotions from them. Everybody was motivated on doing something new. For the presentation we did power point document with relevant links and information about the project. As on the first as well on the second event our audience was interested and motivated from the idea of the project itself. Afterwards we received a few applications for being a part of Estonian team, we proudly can say that our team is growing and gathering motivated participants. Currently we are hardly working on our further ideas to implement those and disseminate - bigger.
