absolutely make sure to not miss any event!
*Discussion on Social Enterpreneurship: 20th of May*
In our next weekly meeting, we will deal with the topic *Social
Enterpreneurship*. We will start by watching the following Lightning Talks
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj1_09k9WWg&feature=emb_logo> by various
founders of charities in different problem areas together. The talks should
provide insight into charity founding in general but also into the problem
ares Global Health, Animal Welfare and Mental Health which the charities of
the speakers try to tackle.
Depending on the interests of the participants, we will proceed to discuss
issues like charity founding in general, interesting ideas brought up by
the founders or things completely unrelated to the talk. We look forward to
seeing many of you there!
