The Importance of Collaboration for Positive Change
Published on: 19.07.2019
Social collaboration brings people and stakeholders together to achieve a common goal. Like in organizations, social collaboration becomes the driving force behind a community movement or initiative for change. Thanks to technology, social collaboration is no longer geographically restricted. People can cooperate even though located thousands of miles away.
This is one of the main purposes of the Entrepreneurship Campus, to bring together people that share an interest in innovation and social entrepreneurship as driving forces towards positive change.
People of different ages, and especially youth join our community because they have a cause to support or a problem that they need to solve smartly.
Besides skills acquisition and networking, the members of the Entrepreneurship Campus have the opportunity to collaborate and help each other by supporting the ideas and projects submitted to our competitions. After every entry submitted to our competitions a person is thinking or working on a solution to a frustrating problem that can turn into a major issue if not solved.
All the ideas and projects are great because their owners are working on them while having limited or a few resources available. Our goal is to get people engaged in creating a better world through entrepreneurial education. You can still join us, by submitting your ideas or projects or by helping other contestants to promote or improve their entries.
Here’s a selection of quotes on the role of collaboration and cooperation at the organization level and beyond.
To build a strong team you must see someone else’s strength as a complement to your weakness not a threat to your position or authority.
Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.
You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.
Many hands make light work.
Victory is much more meaningful when it comes not just from one person, but from the joint achievements of many.
The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.
The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances. If there is any reaction, both are transformed.
