After the successful wrap-up of our first Hub Rally, we are now working hard on launching the second one. The target date is early 2014, and we are aiming for an even richer, more intense program. This time we will focus on projects whose social impact has a potential for reaching a global scope, and as always we require all projects to have a business aspect which will ensure their long term sustainability.
At the moment we are in the process of recruiting more partners - you can become one of them by contributing to this campaign!
We also would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the winners of the first Hub Rally:
Golan Yairi - School for Families
Golan, a veteran high rank IDF Air Force commander, created a unique methodology that leverages his vast experience in leadership and team development for the purpose of strengthening relationships and communication inside families.
Tamar Schmidek - Social Design for Elderly People
Tamar, a young product designer, believes that elderly people have the right to be cool and fashionable just like anyone else. She uses methodologies of social design to develop new products which answer real needs of older people while being attractive and fashionable
Tomer Ben-Ami - Students as Sustainability Leaders
Tomer believes that the concept of sustainability is highly misunderstood in Israeli society, which normally interprets it only in the narrow context of recycling and a vague idea of 'Green'. He project deals with empowering students as change leaders in an effort to establish a much wider discussion on sustainability challenges in Israel.
