Hello my name is Tobias – I came to notice this exceptionally great project and would therefore like to introduce myself as well as apply to the GEF-community and the Co-Creation Workshop in Brussels.
My profile: I am a 25 years old grad. student who is living, studying and working today in Berlin and around Europe. I am not sure whether I should be considered an entrepreneur, a volunteer or a networker – since probably everything is found one way or the other in various projects I am following. Currently I am involved
- as partner and business developer at Friendevent – a social calendar at facebook, that enables people to meet that didn´t know they should
- as founder at the startup WeCoPlan – a social software web-tool that enables small business to do shift-planning (like in a café or hospital) within an activity-flow format social and according to the needs of the employees to increase work satisfaction and identification
- as an Enterprise 2.0 and diversity trainer by myself – developing and teaching concepts, that enable groups with the most given variety of ethnical, social and cultural backgrounds to use open source and social media technologies to empower a value based collaboration in cooperate and not-for-profit organizations

All of this is linked and driven by a core green aspect: The sustainability of interpersonal- and business-interactions/-transactions. This is what means Green to me – you participate and interact with your environment, while trying to move and create a (worthwhile to live) future. Being an entrepreneur and realizing changes like the development into an information driven society, a world of globalization and cluetrain, is a method as well as core paradigm of working – it is the freedom to value-base decide in which way you involve and participate in change happening.
For the Co-Creation Workshop I would like to contribute with my experience and knowledge in business development, finance and new media-technologies. For that I will post during next days/weeks articles and short notices on links and resource on the topics, that come to my mind or I stumble upon and I feel to share here. Would be very interested to discuss about them with you!
There is this feeling, that something like the Co-Creation Workshop could be meant for good things to happen and a creative people to meet and work – that is why would like to join and meet you here and in Brussels.
Let´s talk soon,
