The first Ideation Lab will start in autumn 2022.

Innovative ideas focus on the social challenges that we are facing.
We create solutions, test them within our target groups and implement the most effective ones long-term. Before any innovation process can take place, we define the problem and invite the target group that will benefit most from a new solution to actively participate in the innovation process. The first Ideation Lab will start in autumn 2022. Together with the MEGA Bildungsstiftung and the Sinnbildungsstiftung as our lead partners, we will search for effective ideas that solve challenges in our education system.

The Ideation Lab 2022 takes up the following challenge:

Dream job as a teacher?

One thing is certain: teachers shape future generations and thus have one of the most responsible professions of all!

Why do too few high school graduates choose a career as a teacher and how do we manage to recruit the right people as teachers?

How can the teaching profession become the dream job of the future?

In the Ideation Together process, there are 3 design thinking sessions with different stakeholders to develop new solution approaches:

3.10.2022 16-19h

10.10.2022 16-19h

17.10.2022 16-19h

Creating the new
Impact Venture

Immersing in the challenge

Based on research and expert interviews, the wirkt. team defines a social challenge to find a solution for. Suggestions are always welcome!

Involving stakeholders

In order to achieve a meaningful mapping of the problem, wirkt. invites relevant stakeholders who relate to the issue in different ways to join the discussion.

Design thinking

In a total of around 10 hours of ‘design thinking’ sessions, the stakeholder team works on innovative ideas that contribute to solving the problem.

Challenging the ideas together

In the next step, we present the developed ideas to experts from the field and discuss them together.

Creating the new Impact Venture

As soon as an idea is fully developed, a new Impact Venture is founded in the Social Innovation Studio and financed by wirkt. during the test phase. From there, the Impact Venture is established, managed, and further developed by resident Impact entrepreneurs.
