Descrizione del progetto
Descrivete il vostro progetto con una frase (max. 500 caratteri): 
Developing Innovations is an online platforms which presents and monitors relatively small-scale development projects, to build communities of supporters for these projects.
Riassunto del progetto (max. 2000 caratteri): 
As part of the Student World Assembly (SWA) initiative, "Developing Innovations" was brought forth with the aims of exploring the potential of an online platform for bigger development projects. This Action Plan outlines the process we envision to develop an online platform (with the working title Insight-out) where bigger development projects are monitored in a transparent way, where all participants in a project can form an online community around that project, and where learning between projects is facilitated. As far as we know, there are no such existing online platforms for bigger development projects. By piloting such a platform for bigger developments projects, we aim to learn what organisational changes are needed in development organisations to become active on such online platforms and how it will change the way of working of bigger development players.

Ever since this project has been established, at least three bigger projects have participated in the pilot and have been presented on an existing online platform and have been monitored real time online. Online communities have been founded around these three projects that are made up by people/organisations/companies directly supporting or funding the projects and by people/organisations/companies that are directly being supported by the projects. The project data of these online projects is tagged and searchable so it can be used for learning by others. Also, a final lessons learnt document is developed, describing the challenges encountered by the organisations that have piloted their projects on the online platform, describing the requirements of an online platform that can deliver on the goals listed above, and recommending ways forwards.

Aim of this project is to connect young people, students with various institutions, companies, non-profits or other initiatives, via new everyday medium Facebook, in order to cooperate symbiotically.
Riassunto del progetto (max. 2000 caratteri): 
The name speaks for itself. It is a link connecting young people, students with various institutions or groups, companies, non-profits, ngos or other (student) initiatives in order to cooperate symbiotically. On the one hand students need to take some practice/praxis (at some schools it is compulsory) or want to gain invaluable experience, on the other, those mentioned subjects always look for fresh brains and a possibility to get some work done for free. It is an area where the majority of universities fail, the bridge between theory and practice.

Descrizione del progetto
Descrivete il vostro progetto con una frase (max. 500 caratteri): 
A collaborative online community service project.
Riassunto del progetto (max. 2000 caratteri): 
In a world where so many young people don't have the chance to participate positively in solving the problems of their societies, where many children suffer and don't find anybody to help them, where many dangerous phenomena threaten our societies and countries and the lack of awareness is spread everywhere, we need to encourage students to act positively in their societies. Students can make great contributions if they have a suitable chance. Students represent a great proportion of the total population in many countries all over the globe. They are part of any solution to the problems that any society faces. They also suffer because of many problems such as lack of awareness, ignorance and bad social conditions. We need to give help to youth and let them feel that they are at the level of responsibility and can do something helpful and useful to their societies. We need to encourage students and give them the chance to enable them to help all who need their help in the future. Students who work on community"“service projects and other awareness projects can serve and help governments in finding solutions to the problems concerned to youth. Students can also participate in community"“service activities such as donation campaigns for national charity or helping illiterate people by spreading awareness among them. They can try to let their friends know more about the problems their societies face. They can give the hand to visit some orphans and have some good time with them. They can go to cancer patients and let them feel that there are many people who care for them. They can take practical actions to help street kids, child laborers, child soldiers and child refugees too. They can change what many elders couldn't change if they are given the suitable chance. "Students unlimited" is a community"“service project that discusses the participation of students and youth and helps them to TAKE ACTIONS.
