During the last years my colleague Brigitte Bach regulary appeared at work with her amazing creations of muffins & co. (even vegan, tasting better than most of the regular sweets I know). With me beeing in the very lucky position of testing lots of them, I'm more than excited that Brigitte published finally her first cook book.
I got invited to give a talk about Online Campaigning as part of the Smart Media Strategies course in Vienna. Beeing a new two term course which is all about innovative PR for NGOs, I'm looking forward to this talk, taking place on 18. January 2014 at the Hochschule für Agrar- und Umweltpädagogik.
Wolfgang Gumpelmaier, who regulary interviews people from different backgrounds about their crowdfunding projects, invited me to talk with him about our Greenpeace project "The Movement". You can watch the interview online.
I've been invited to join the Barcamp at my old studyplace FH Salzburg again, taking place from 18.-20. October around the topic "the next web". If you've time and are around, join us - good talks and nice people :)
The austrian media magazine "film, sound & media" published a nice interview of Clara Luzia, Michael Rittmannsberger and me about the background-story to our crowdfunding project "The Movement".
It was a tough year and totally worth it by seeing the results. Our crowdfunded spot "The Movement" is finished - it's online, soon in Cinemas near you, on multiple TV channels and even as article about the whole project in some publications.
Based on an idea of singer Clara Luzia, the whole project grew into a solid work, which now raises awareness for the Arctic not just in Austria but in multiple countries and continents worldwide. Clara contacted Greenpeace in 2012, asking if we wanna use her new song "We are fish" as part of our campaign work for saving the arctic. I loved the song, the opportunity and so I developed a concept of crowdfunding money to realize an awareness spot in Austria, taking the song as inspiration and interpretation. We aimed high, as we also implemented a crowdsourcing part - donors had the chance to play a part in the spot too.
With Michael Rittmannsberger we found the perfect director, and without the great support of Bernhard Holzhammer and his film production company Wildruf, the outcome wouldn't be as impressive as it is now, looking at the finished peace.
Thx to all involved!
Together with my colleague Daniel Puschnig I'm hosting a talk for a class of Hochschule München who visits us at Greenpeace in Vienna. The talk is about our mobilisation work at Greenpeace and what role designers play in recent mobilisation developments.
An article of mine got published in the recent act-magazine, the
quarterly magazine for austrian donors and supporters. It's about the effect of online petitions as well as our recent crowdfunding project "the movement".
