Creating wooden products

28 June–07 July, 2019
Told, Hungary
€250–350
Application is closed
17 May 2019

You will strengthen your skills of interdisciplinary collaboration while working on a wooden product that will bring income to people living in poverty in Told, Hungary.

What you will work on and why

Told is a small, isolated village in Eastern Hungary where the majority of the population lives in poverty. Our partner, the Real Pearl Foundation, has been working since 1999 for equal opportunities and social integration for the poor in this region.

One basic element of their strategy is to encourage the community to become more sustainable through self-efficacy. They support community members who have little access to knowledge about opportunities by teaching them about the resources that are available to them.

Part of this activity is running a wood workshop. The tools were a gift from a carpenter and through some grant funding the workshop was developed further. The biggest challenge for the wood workshop at the moment is the lack of products that would make it financially sustainable.

Who are we looking for

Holis has partnered with the Real Pearl foundation to help them develop wood products as well as a competitive business model, marketing plan, and sales channels. We are looking for participants including, but not limited to, the following areas:

Business planning
Carpentry and cabinetmaking
Industrial design
Marketing
Organisational design
Product management
Sales
Service design
Web Development

Team facilitators and experts

(More team facilitators to be announced.)

What will you learn

Although we have different topics for each of our summer schools, they all focus on learning skills that will strengthen your ability to solve complex problems — regardless of the field you come from. We believe that hard skills are important, but with the rapid evolution of technology, a focus on hard skills can potentially leave you vulnerable to change as these often have a shorter shelf life. Soft skills, on the other hand, enable you to adapt to change more easily.

What you’ll be doing

You will attend a 10 days / 9 nights on site workshop with both preparatory work and post-workshop assignment. You will produce project deliveries that might be used for further development and implementation thus achieving real impact in a long run.

Feedback

An important part of the learning process when working with other people is to be open to, aware of, and efficient when giving and receiving feedback.

Team development

Life can only be understood backwards

The first Holis focused on the future scenarios of an old felt factory in Hungary, which at the time was suffering from a 90% loss of income due to the rise in popularity of synthetic felts. As a result of the solutions that Holis participants helped to identify and implement, the felt factory now has new owners, new products, and other thriving business activities. Since then we’ve been working on various challenges in different countries.
