Skillsie / co-making, skillsharing and open collaboration spaces
Every house, warehouse, garage or space can become a school, workshop or laboratory. Great ideas bring great people together, everyone has knowledge to share. We allow people to teach and learn from each other, sharing their experience to co-make and develop practical common projects and open, social and creative ideas. It´s people to people vocational training, sharing their skills, working in open spaces, bringing people together, no matter who you are, what you studied or your experience
There is a need to provide opportunities for excluded populations to gain practical skills that can turn them into entrepreneurial activities or improve their job experience by co-learning from other people. Skillsharing is a free way for people to gain valuable experience and knowledge in an effective and practical way, and get closer to each other and
That people work on open spaces and start co-making and developing their projects and ideas together with other people who are willing to offer their skills and experience, to generate a common outcome, to gain practical experience that can be further used for entrepreneurial activities or job opportunities, specially in under served populations like migrants, youth, women, mature professionals, etc.
Start a network of spaces where people can co-make and share their skills, linked online to broaden their geographical reach and organize workshops in different pilot cities to promote skillsharing
For excluded individuals looking to gain practical experience for future entrepreneurial activities and job searching opportunities, for example migrants, students, young professionals, women and mature professionals.
We aim to open up learning and collaborative working opportunities to anyone by promoting creative people to share their ideas so that they get developed further with the help of the community.
