From the beginning, we have seen a good resonance and effectiveness to our programmes. So we asked ourselves how we could bring art and positive psychology into completely different areas of society? meeting of the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network 2019.
There, we were guests at the Impulso Universitario institution. They offer leadership training to young adults from the surrounding villages of Merida, along the UN guidelines.
The first opportunity for implementation came through the BMW Foundation network. In our first "Social Impact" project "Positive Cooperation", we are working together with Netzwerk Chancen, a non-profit and independent organisation. The initiative promotes equal opportunities for children, youths and young adults from financially disadvantaged or non-academic families throughout Germany.

Programm description (german version)
It was obvious to connect positive psychology, the exploration of a successful life, the creative attitude of art, with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
In particular, we see three of the 17 goals as highly appropriate:
SDG Goal No. 4 "Quality Education"; the digital learning solution is able to distribute high quality programmes beyond the local and sometimes limited possibilities of "live programmes".
SDG Goal No. 5 "Gender equality"; is a central goal of our engagement. Thus, we plan an "African Women Leadership" programme in Uganda.
SDG Goal No. 3 "Good Health and Well-being"; is the direct link to our approach of combining positive psychology with creative work.
