Become a certified Innovation Host!
We live at a time during which people feel an increasingly pressing need to go out and change something, instead of staying at home and looking at the world from the outside. Active citizens want to live their ideas and visions. To support these active citizens, we urgently need people who host, facilitate, moderate, support, inspire, guide and empower others during critical innovation phases or visionary development processes.
Within the Erasmus+ Project „Hosting Social Innovation“ we are launching a pilot programme that will bolster those important hosting competencies.
You will be introduced to the Visionautic way of thinking, experiment with and reflect on a variety of multisensual approaches and methods for a rich, colourful and creative facilitation style. After seven workshop days you will be the proud owner of an ample multisensual toolkit which includes:

-How to create an atmosphere of fun and experimental learning.
-How to work with Visionautic material to develop and share ideas: maps, logbooks, inspirations, props, etc.
