SOCIAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT: COMMUNITY COOKING (2018)
Work with our client Caritas performed by Evelina Lundqvist, through The Good Tribe in Austria. Community Cooking is a Caritas Vienna initiative. It's an international meeting point for people living in the communities surrounding the old Anker bread factory.
Our task was to help develop social business ideas revolving around cooking together, which could be offered to companies in order to find ways of co-financing the charitable community cooking activities. We facilitated the social business development process, gathered business intelligence, innovated new services and created a marketing strategy. The process was truly participatory, including employees across several Caritas' branches.
Visit Community Cooking on Facebook and partcipate in one of their open cooking events held every Tuesday in the Brotfabrik in Vienna.
REPORT: BOOSTING EXPORT AMONG CREATIVE AND CULTURAL BUSINESSES IN JÄMTLAND HÄRJEDALEN (2017)
Work with our clients the City of Östersund and the County of Jämtland Härjedalen, by Evelina Lundqvist, through The Good Tribe in Sweden.
Our task was to evaluate and analyse the needs of local businesses in the cultural and creative industries to internationalise and export products and services. We conducted research, interview with key stakeholders, created and distributed an online service which 80 local business, NGOs and other organisations filled out, analysed the materials, and authored the report. The report has since been distributed and presented by Evelina and the client in different regional and national fora.
STOPPA RYKTET (2017)
Stoppa ryket! was based on the experience gained through the municipality's work on the Antirumours campaign 2014 and 2015. In 2017, the initiative entered a new phase where The Good Tribe in Sweden was commissioned to develop the initiative on behalf of Botkyrka municipality. Stoppa ryket! is directly linked to Botkyrka municipality efforts to reach the goals in their Equality Strategy.
Our task was to develop the initiative, organise Antitumour Cafés and write the method handbook Stoppa ryktet! (Stop the rumour!), which NGOs and private citizens can use in their work for a society free of prejudice and xenophobia.

Making jam out of fruits that would otherwise be thrown away. Sometimes it's time to kill a darling. This happened to Zero Waste Jam, which is no longer an active project.
Evelina is however, continuously getting requests to advice or mentor others that want to pursue similar goals working against food waste.

Exploring the potential for increased prosperity by investigating the potential of business angels and social entrepreneurs engaging in business together.
This cluster of initiatives - partly based on our own work, partly work for clients, is deeply rooted in The Good Tribe's capacity to train and empower youth to create and realise ideas that benefit the development of the youths' own communities. The three initiatives mentioned above are now merging into their own organisation, The Good Talents.

What started as an experimental Clothes Swapping event in Graz, evolved into an international youth exchange and training for young artists from Sweden, Austria, Germany, Spain and Latvia. The initiative explored the connections between climate change, human rights and youth's consumption and creation of fashion.
