Proposal

Idea pitch

Our movement will be measurable by the number of practitioners we attract and the number of sessions and mobs we organize. But more importantly we want to achieve a change in mindset, behavior and in community engagement, to one where people care for each other and accept each others’ differences.

Where will your idea take place?

Stuttgart, Dortmund, Dresden

Why does Europe need your idea?

Our value and differentiation is our aim to drive a paradigm shift among every day people and help them discover their own potential to connect and strengthen cohesion with others and the community. We want to increase real human contact and help people discover everything that they have in common.

Our idea is not limited to any community or country within Europe. It is a vision to touch the whole EU and spread the humanitarian value of connectedness and unity in diversity by using mindfulness as a tool.

As a result this state of compassion has the potential to lead to more engagement and initiatives to change problems and address xenophobia, and thus create more self-motivated leaders and change makers.

What is your impact?

Our movement will be measurable by the number of practitioners we attract and the number of sessions and mobs we organize. But more importantly we want to achieve a change in mindset, behavior and in community engagement, to one where people care for each other and accept each others’ differences, learn from each other to create stronger communities.

The more active practitioners we attract we’ll not only achieve a healthier and happier community, but the individuals that form our communities will influence and make an impact on their surroundings! They will manifest a demonstration of how to live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Our vision is that these communities grow and converge to the European society. We could have a mindful, peaceful and accepting Europe.
