unaVisionis a network of people with a common vision for a sustainable future. The network is a human centred, bottom up civil society movement which brings together inspired and motivated people and their organizations and institutions (NGOs, companies, regions, communities) who are actively involved in sustainable development.
Learning Journeys - Experience the spirit of the regions
We are looking for partners who like to co-develop and implement this idea.
We envision a network of organizations from exceptional regions, which are best practise examples of sustainable development. The objective of the network is to connect like-minded people and organizations of regions around the globe, who can learn from each other, co-create systems, concepts, products, services and social entrepreneurships, which support the development of our sustainable future.
At the moment, we are some organizations in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Eastern Europe who would like to create and implement an eco-social business model for this network.
The Learning Journey idea:
Move physically and mentally
Meet local people from different sectors, cultures and generations, learn from their knowledge and experience on sustainable development
Make and co-develop products and services, get new skills and get creative, implement concepts, become a social entrepreneur and create new ventures
Multiply and share your experience and knowledge, tell your story, write articles, books, poetries, make films and..
We plan to co-develop the learning journey concept within the next two to three years. Part of the co-development process are prototyping learning journeys and events in different formats and conducting a continuous virtual development process online. We imagine physical meetings of the partners during the next two years in order to get to know each other and to have a couple of days intensive work on the vision, strategy, products and services. A first meeting could be planned between middle Nov and middle Dec 2015. First prototyping journeys are planned in summer and autumn 2015 (hiking dialog in the Balkans, topic journeys in Austria/Slovenia and Portugal).

With the SENTour Connect project we are co-developing an innovative learning journey package for seniors. The SENTour Connect project started from the idea that the senior market is an area for tourism expansion in low season within the European Union. Travel is a means to prolong a quality of life and Europe has a growing senior population for whom this is an important issue.The main objective of the project is to facilitate transnational tourism exchanges for seniors in the low season within the European domestic market.To do this, the project aims at creating innovative and sustainable transnational tourism packages for seniors, and improving the tourism seasonality patterns across Europe.
Prototypes to Austria/Slovenia, Portugal and the Balkans
