Learning for Sustainable Change. Malmö, April 10-11.

How can we learn collaboratively for our sustainability work? We are exploring this question with our 2-day, hands-on capacity building workshop and we would love to see you there.

We are very excited for this partnership between Malmö University and Legacy17 to deliver this 2-day capacity building workshop for sustainability practitioners, business, and civil society leaders.

This two-day workshop is addressed primarily to leaders and others seriously engaged in sustainability. The methodology, called Learning for Change, offers an effective format for planning and evaluation meetings as well as providing a basis for credible sustainability and social innovation work. Participants take home a toolkit for making the daily sustainability work more effective. It will be led by Marilyn Mehlmann (Rachel Carson award with decades of experience) and co-led by Andre Benaim.

Why should an organisation send its employees? 

We have strong reasons to believe that the skills built during the Learning for Change workshop can be easily brought back to the working environment and make your work and your team work more effective.

We spend much of our working time in meetings and doing team-work: both of them will have a productivity surge in effectiveness with a dedicated attendance to a programme like our Learning for Change event, which is one of the many reasons we are excited about offering it!

Perhaps a good reason to talk to the HR department and make the case for capacity building budget? There is a sliding scale, by which the organization saves money by sending their 2nd and 3rd employee, which we offer as a way to a) make it financially easier for organization to send more staff b) make it easier for more team members to develop skills they can later apply, and talk about, and have a shared language.

Förändringar i vårt bokningssystem

Svenska

Vi vill ständigt låta våra användare definiera vad Storm är och hur Storm fungerar. Vi har under det senaste halvåret provat oss fram med ett bokningsformulär som man har behövt att boka Storm via. Vi tar till oss den konstruktiva kritiken vi har fått av er användare och gjort processen smidigare.

  1. Vårt bokningsformulär är nu halverat och tar bara en bråkdel av tiden att fylla i. Detta kan göras via: https://storm.mah.se/bokning/
  2. När du/ni har gjort en bokning återkommer vi med eventuella frågor, gärna via telefon.

English

We are always striving to let our users define what Storm is and how Storms works. We have prototyped a booking form for the past six months in order to book Storm.  However, we are listening to the constructive critique received by our users and made the booking process more smooth. 

  1. The booking form is now half the size it was before. Find it at: https://storm.mah.se/en/booking/
  2. When your booking is filled out, we will get back to you with possible questions, preferably through telephone. 

 

 

Introducing: Co-Working Day at Storm

For the first time ever we open up Storm for all the staff and students at Malmö University! Come and enjoy a day, or just a few hours together with some new and old faces. Whether you wan’t the competence of someone else present or just want to have a nice and creative place to work Storm is there for you!

Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared workplace and independent activity. Those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Coworking is a social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other. Coworking offers a solution to the problem of isolation that many freelancers experience while working at home, while at the same time letting them escape the distractions of home.

Product Launch – Studenter hjälper företag att hitta idéer som ligger i tiden

Studenter från kursen innovationsprojekt har under hösten undervisats i Storms lokaler och använt Storm för att producera sina slutprojekt, något vi är mycket stolta över!

Studenterna bjuder på fräscht tänk, nya innovativa idéer och tvärvetenskaplig kompetens. Det är anledningen till att framgångsrika företag och organisationer gärna tar hjälp av Malmö universitets studenter för att lösa verkliga problem.  

”Live” på scen och inför publik av företagsföreträdare, kurskompisar, lärare och andra inbjudna gäster fick studenter på kursen Innovationsprojekt presentera lösningar på problem de fått av sina uppdragsgivare. Länsförsäkringars innovationsbolag Lfant, Sigma Connectivity, Eon, Hållbar utveckling Skåne, Movinspire var de företag som bjudits in för att lyssna på studenternas lösningar.

Charlotte has helped to drive Storm to what it is today and she wants to talk about her role and why innovation and Storm alike is needed in our society. Enjoy!

Studenter och gymnasieelever samarbetade i innovationsrace

Det har varit en riktig ’delight’, vi har utvecklat elevernas innovationsidéer genom att applicera våra egna kunskaper. Vi hjälper dem hitta behovet bakom produkterna, unique selling points och rätt pitchar. I slutändan handlar det om att validera produkten.

Patrik Nilsson, student och för dagen mentor i Innovationracet 2017 för gymnasieelever.
