Explain your idea in details:
We want to remind people the power of shared values taking care of their own interests and giving some meaningful values to the world could be achieved simultaneously. Each of us has the potential, which usually is not used properly. We get on great ideas, but we lack experience, finance, support, thus the plans would not be implemented. With the platform IfWepedia everyone will be able to share ideas, get feedback, find other people willing to embody or crowdfund this idea in life. We will supply the feel of satisfaction by getting points for new achievements and having fun using IfWepedia.We want to enable this opportunity to individuals, other organizations, the private sector. IfWepedia is created for young people - mainly students and young professionals. Those who are motivated to become empowered, self-developed, who want to make something above rules and above themselves. IfWepedia will gather people from around the world who collect points which then can be used to get some social profits - workshops, conferences, job offers. How? Combining potential of non-profit organizations with the capabilities of the private sector. We want to be a platform for other non-governmental organizations of exchanging interesting initiatives, trainings, conferences as well as a platform of private companies, who could promote themselves as supporting shared values and social issues. These conferences or sponsorship from private companies could be a reward for the IfWepedia participants for getting the highest amount of IfWepoints or sharing their ideas. To get ifwepoints you can carry out achivements, which will be updated all the time. The achievements will be curious, attractive, challanging, linked in paralel to shared values (more about how to get points is in video included).
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
IfWepedia is based on exponential thinking. We will not create next ideas, initiatives, achievements only on our own. Time and ideas of a few people are limited. In contrast, if we create a platform on which others can discover their potential and put into practice their ideas, experiences and interests, we can multiply our strength and capabilities. We want to be the FORUM of all organizations and all motivated people, willing to fulfill these common goals. Combining the potential of women and men, focusing on deepening our diversity and cooperation will achieve better results and harmony in action. Why is this innovative approach? Because people like competing, earning points and enjoying their time. So far, these features have been used only in the private sector. Using the shared values we want to combine the potential and the financial capabilities of the private sector with the motivation and creativity flowing through the third sector - NGOs. We want to create an application as a sort of the most popular social networking sites. This has to be interesting, attractive, fashionable. easy, intuitional. People will want to have it because it gives them something, develop, make them popular, visible and succesful. The three main key players will be satisfied and have their own benefits: Participants individuals, who by means of curious achievements could develop themselves and expone their potential as well as get tangible benefits in change of IfWepoints NGOs they can share their experiences, opportunities and attract participants to make interest of values and actions they support Private companies they can promote themselves as sharing social values, caring of global and local issues, be connected with ideas that everything is possible, they can sponsor innovative ideas sharing by IfWepedia users, which could be implemented in their business.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
IfWepedia is the idea created by International Forum for Women Empowerment and within that organisation we want to act as a social enterprise - to raise profit for further activites and constructive aid in the world.
To evaluate success we need several elements:
- Channels we will be using:
- Application IfWepedia - very smart and intuitive, with system of earning points, setting challenges, upgrading profiles, getting prizes
- Other social media: Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
- Universities, students organisations
- Networking via IfWe Global
- Positioning and keeping the application
- Advertisements in social media
- Initiatives and events connecting with particular achievements
- Key partners:
- Non-governmental organisations, associations
- Local, national and international private companies
- ONZ, EU, public authorities.
We want to make IfWepedia sustainable by exchanging ideas for needs. Private companies would want to be associated with ideas that everything is possible, innovative approach to bussiness. We want to promote modern, innovative companies in exchange of their financial support. It will be also a platform, where non-governmental organisations could offer their opportunities in change of attraction of young leaders to their organisation and initiatives.
By gaining IfWepoints by the best participants we will select people who are very positive, creative and willing to do something more. The companies and entities could implement ideas shared by those participants on IfWepedia. The ideas should be based on cooperation, innovation, exponential thinking. There will be also possibility to get profit from advertising on the website and Youtube and other financial resources.
We are a group of students aged 22-23 years, who have started to establish organisation International Forum for Women Empowerment in Poland. We study different majors and have various interests. We would introduce ourselves as a realistic people with heads in clouds at the same time, who always say "yes", are not afraid of challenges, changes and risk. Many times we have found out that anything is possible. We have plenty of ideas and the most important one - vision what we want to follow in life. Deriving from valuable experiences and inspiring people, we are convinced that everything is in our own hands and we can create our future. What motivates us is to inspire others and deepen valuable relationships. If every life is the candle thus we want to be a torch, which can fire the brightest flame and incite others. We feel that with the possibilities of the 21st century we have a chance to create a new reality. So how about making the best of this opportunity? Each of us individually take part in various international events, conferences, like Peace Conference of Youth in Japan, Youth Exchange Program EU/MENA in Egypt. We have been members of non-governmental organizations, including AIESEC, Junior Chamber International. Now we are creating International Forum for Women Empowerment with other active people all over the world. In our opinion, only effective and creative actions can bring desired results in the future. We are definitely a team-workers, we personally believe that if you want it faster - go alone, if you want to go further - go in a team. IF WE can, why cant you?
