Afterwards, the Team Leader (Ockje Sisselaar) clarified everybody’s tasks for the following week and discussed everybody`s duties trough the whole project.The Blog was launched and the work on it started.

On Thursday, the 10 september 2015, at 15’ o’clock there was a Skype meeting with Francois. Here the team members of client servies had a talk with Francois to get a little bit of insight of what IWF is, what the exact meaning of IWF is, what its role is ect. Here are some of the main points Francois had pointed out for us during the Skype meeting:

——The overall objective is to help a community thrive. For us IDE-C and the IWF, the power is in the people who already want to do something. BUT understand that we are not here to change the world, we are here to express ourselves and our concerns – and if that happens to change something, all for the better. This is how the IWF community should come together: For people with the same concern for water. IWF is not a organization that believes it is necessary to convince anyone because there is already a large number of individuals with a genuine interest about water. Our aim to get those people with this genuine interest to work together. Thus in short, our aim/job is to get these individuals to unite. to work together. to inspire the people with the same concerns about water. About the integrally-informed approach: The IWF audience taggert is for young people. The organization IWF likes to keep things short, thus not bore people with long and overloaded theory and knowledge. The IWF goal is not to build a philosophy around water, it’s to have concrete actions « in the context of » a long-term vision.The IWF wants to craft a longer-term vision for access to water, and long-term can only be understood if we care for the issue / if it’s part of our culture. If a individual or a group cares about something, they will invest the time to think about it before acting. The objective is not to change the world, but design the conditions for mind-sets to shift! Fracious words, how he feels about IWF: Confusiastic is a new word for me, but not a new emotion! There is something foundational about working on water, where failure might be occasional but success unavoidable as water is essential to life and our future. The evolutionary impulse will always look for a way emerge; may the opportunity to listen inward, express who we are and create concrete outcomes be a joyful journey in your Project Community! (I know it will be for me!) For those looking for security, know that each time you are setting out to do something that has never been done before, there is no expert to turn to, so you have to choose to be present, and at the end of the process you’ll be that expert!———— 

From the information we gathered from Francois, we are now able to proceed with our project. Next week we will provide you the next update about the next meeting and where we stand within this project.

Have a nice day guys!

Just TsvetelINA …

Hello!  11880599_1259633037395749_135078866039289847_nMy name is Tsvetelina (“Tsvete” means “Flower” in bulgarian) and i`ve just started my student`s life in The Hague.
Ever since my childhood, I have always been interested in design. My first encounter with this field was in secondary school where I had extra drawing classes. During this period I had to create various arts and crafts projects, such as: clay plates, masks, sketches and others. That part of my life was the spark that lit the fire in me called “design”. After finishing my secondary school I decided to study in a high school focused on foreign languages, where I intensively have studied German (although I still don`t know it ) and English. Apart from my school work and hobbies I am also interested in winter sports, especially skiing. I enjoy the difficulty and the adrenaline that I feel while skiing.I looooove traveling and experiencing new things, taking photos and eating a lot!
Anyway, a new page of my life has started. I`ve just moved to the Hague to start my studies in the Hague University – Industrial design engineering. By choosing this path I expect a lot from my future- to expand my knowledge and skills and to explore every single part of the process of inventing, designing and selling a product, to find new friends and collect many new memories AND to find my superpower.   🙂
