Solution Lab #1 WijDelen (ENG)

(Voor de Nederlandse tekst: klik hier)

Do you enjoy a good brainstorming session on creative solutions for a better world? Then bring on your positivism, ideas and enthusiasm to the Solution Lab on March 31, 2015 at 3 PM.

The entrepreneurial minds of Wijdelen.be (Peerby) are curious about your ideas during a Solution Lab, hosted by MakeSense and the Social Innovation Factory.

Wijdelen.be is an online platform that helps you to find people in your area who can borrow you stuff. Sharing things is cheaper, it saves materials and is social. Following the successful launch in Ghent in May 2013, the platform rapidly expanded in Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia. Today nearly 11,000 people registered online. Just imagine them all sharing their stuff… which is, unfortunately, not yet the case. How can we make their users step up and start sharing (more)? What are the best ways to activate this huge community to start sharing more frequently?

In the Solution Lab Wijdelen will give you a short introduction on their platform and challenge. In small groups we’ll be coming up with creative and workable solutions. Every idea will be taken into consideration and you don’t need any foreknowledge. Do you have a positive attitude? Are you willing to use it to help these social innovators? Then register using the form below. Important: the number of places is limited.
