We strive to make socially-conscious the baseline for all people.

WHO WE ARE

We are a non-political student organization that gives students a platform to be involved in the social change making mechanism in Austria.

We focus on the implementation of social projects, and the education of youth on social issues.*

*Social projects include starting social start-ups, creating apps, websites, running creative awareness campaigns and more. We aim to provide the general public with options to switch to a socially-conscious lifestyle without feeling the transition. That’s our pragmatic side. We also believe that mindset is one of the main issues. That’s why we deliver engaging workshops in middle and high schools across Vienna to teach kids about waste, food waste, gender equality and digitalisation in an effort to define our future.
