NEST is a mini seed acceleration program for teams of people based on Lesvos island, Greece, who want to implement a creative or business idea. It is implemented in collaboration with Movement On The Ground leveraging IBM’s SkillsBuild platform in the skills development process.
We implement THE BRIDGE PROJECT together with PUSH from Palermo, aiming to empower collaboration between individuals, teams and communities through skills development processes!
The project was launched in the context of TANDEM EUROPE, which is an initiative developed by European Cultural Foundation and MitOst e.V.together with Fondazione Cariplo with additional financial support from Robert Bosch Stiftung and Stavros Niarchos Foundation. It is implemented together with 4iS (Aveiro), COMM’ON (Athens) and Ideas Factory (Sofia). THE BRIDGE PROJECT is also funded by the European Unionin the context of DESIGNSCAPES project “Design-Enabled
Innovation in Urban Environments” (H2020-SC6-CO-CREATION-2016-3 Project number: 763784)
LESVOS 2030 is a Creative Hub initiative which aims to the participation of civil society in the formation of a common vision and implementation strategy of a sustainable and resilient Lesvos of the next decade!
Skill Up is a workshop series aiming to development of skills by the participants, which are useful for the implementation of creative or business ideas and for the empowerment of their position in the labor market.
Currently, Skill Up workshops don’t take place, because of the implementation of THE BRIDGE PROJECT which has similar objectives.
