Hi amazing entrepreneurs
This is Coffhub Investments, My name is Saw Saylar, I would like to be part of the climate solutions and the sustainable livelihoods for communities. There are three main purposes of this online course:
1. Learning and sharing knowledge/experience from other young people and other stakeholders
2. Build a network and how we together contribute the climate change
3. Sharing my passion and inspiring the ideas and our social enterprise that we are together can do it
I truly understand that my active participation, engagement, active listening, and sharing the ideas and platform together that help me to succeed in this course.

Regenerative agroforestry is my biggest interested, I strongly believe that could help the small-scale farmers to improve their livelihoods thought farm incubation and contribute the forestry. The regenerative agroforestry system is aborting the CO2 and Greenhouse gas (GHGs), also the sustainable income for small-scale farmers.

We are really happy to discuss more and excited to get to know the wonderful ideas of climate solutions.

Regards,
SayLar

I am joining this course because I would like to get to know more about climate change issues, sustainable development and engineering/entrepreneurial solutions in diverse socio-technical contexts. In addition, I'd like to prepare myself for the summer school The Journey that I've been accepted into :-)

This course will be successful for me when I have learned more about the complexity of the climate change problem (or, rather, opportunity) in the specific context of Europe and when I've learned the steps I may take and the tools I may use to develop ideas and solutions myself.

Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest right now lies within the agricultural and energy sectors; both complex systems of mass-production that seriously impact our quality of life.

Hey there! I'm Duygu, originally from Turkey, currently living in Berlin for my master studies in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship. I will be joining the Journey 5 - The Netherlands – Trondheim and West Midlands.
I am joining this course because I want to develop deeper understanding about environmental challenges, to learn how a viable business model can be developed around environmental challenges to make myself ready as much as possible for the Journey.
This course will be successful for me when I gain a deeper understanding about the interlinkages between climate change and business, and have a well-structured approach on a given challenge.
Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest is food and waste. But I would like to get familiar with other areas as well. I am not just seeking for business ideas based on a specific problem but also business ideas to create/increase awareness in regions exhibiting relatively low-level engagement towards solving environmental challenges.

Hey everyone,

I'm Julia, 23, studying Geography and Sociology. I will take part in the journey 7 Zurich - Bologna and I'm already really excited :)

I'm joining this course because I'm interested in different ways on how to approach issues on Climate Change (and Global Change in General) - and entrepreneurship is one of them.

This course will be successful for me when I find out which strategy works best to create and elaborate Business ideas by having the 'Issues' already in mind that you want to address.

Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest right now is sustainable Food supply in cities and waste Management. Since agriculture is and will be an important Driver for climate Change in the future and since especially urban Population will increase I think this is one of the main issues we Need to address when thinking about climate Change mitigation.

Hey guys!

Cool to see all these enthusiastic introductions below! :)

This summer I will be participating in the Journey in Lund-Munich and Wroclaw. I am currently studying at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, pursuing MSc Urban Environmental Management. I am a happy Hungarian girl that loves new challanges and meeting new people!

I am joining this course because I am constantly struck by ideas, things in my daily life that I would like to improve and act upon. Up until now this has been big pool of ideas. I have the feeling that this course will help me streamline these thoughts and turn them into an innovative business plan!
This course will be successful for me when I am ready to start my own company and equipped to turn my visions into reality!
Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest right now is sustainable building, specifically making inner spaces and already existing buildings greener and more sustainable. I have the feeling that sustainable building generally focuses on new buildings and neglects the ones are already in place, where the majority of people live and work. This is a great interest of mine that I would like to work on!

Looking forward to meeting you all and engage in some hardcore brainstorming about climate innovation! :) Sharing is caring! Cheers!

I am joining this course because...
I am eager to learn how personal figments regarding healthy and sustainable city living could potentially be successfully implemented in practice. By now I do not have a lot of experience with working in domain climate change domain from an entrepreneurial perspective. Moreover, meeting likeminded people with different academic backgrounds will broaden my scope on a multidisciplinary issue as climate change.

This course will be successful for me when...
I have learned to apply a more entrepreneurial perspective when working on climate change solutions.

Within the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, my biggest interest right now is...
Banning harmful pollutants out of the city because citizens of urban areas these days are too much exposed to dangerous fines.
