Sustainably changing the world for the better is a major undertaking, and one where the path isn’t always smooth. Our toolbox is there to keep you on the right track, containing a wealth of useful tools and templates to help get your idea from 0 to 100.
It all starts with a vision. This is your objective and your guideline, making it all the more important to get straight to the point. This exercise shows you how to get to the heart of your vision.
There’s often a big difference between an idea and reality. So you should always take reality checks as early as possible – preferably directly with your target group. This exercise will help you with this.
You won’t change the world on your own. What you need are the right allies – like-minded people who complement you on both a technical and a human level. This tool will help you build a team of superheroes.
Your team of superheroes is in place. But who actually does what now? Clearly defined roles and agreements are the basis of good collaboration. Here, the pioneering project Expedition Future shares important insights into how to delegate responsibility in associations.
Impact and profitability are not mutually exclusive. On the contrary. A sound financial basis helps you make a lasting impact. You don’t need huge Excel lists for the first financial check – simple net income accounts will suffice.
For all the idealism and desire to make a difference in the world, you still need seed capital to get things started. You need good arguments to convince potential financial backers. Find out what they are here.
There will be ups and downs. The downs are just part of the process. As are the doubts. But that’s no reason to go into crisis situations blind. Find out how to prepare for the next down and how to recognise when too much is too much and enough is enough.
You need to celebrate your successes – and make the very most of them. Because it’s easier to find fellow campaigners and supporters when you’re riding the crest of a wave. How? Have a look for yourself!
The trajectory of a pioneering project is intricate – and seldom predictable. You can always expect the unexpected. In both a positive and negative sense. And your influence on this is sometimes not as great as you think. It helps to sensitise yourself here. This is how it works.
