Combining strengths, interests and causes into meaningful projects.

What will you do after you graduate from University?
How can you get involved in projects that will make you come alive?
How can you prepare yourself to live a meaningful life?

These are all questions that you will have a chance to explore during the IKIGAI workshop. IKIGAI stems from Japanese philosophy and best translates to “reason for being.” It is about combining what you love doing (interests), what you have to contribute to the world (strengths) and the causes you care the most about.

Inspired by the philosophy, the Changemaker Residency team in collaboration with INBO, has created a creative process that enables you to apply the Ikigai concept to your life. It invites you to brainstorm ideas for meaningful world-changing projects. The workshop will help you discover possibilities you had never before envisioned.

The approach is: dynamic, student-centered and fun!
