RemoteYear — travel and work with digital nomads— kicks off in Prague

images

Remote year is a new one year program where you travel around the world with 70+ interesting people while working remotely. It was kicked off in PRAGUE this month. A very cool concept that might become a pioneer of the way how people work in the future. Many people want to do this, but they don’t because it’s scary. But you don’t need to be at a certain desk anymore, or in a certain city anymore.

Remote year allows participants to enjoy all of the benefits of traveling without any of the risks. The program will spend one month in 12 different locations through the world. This will give participants an opportunity to deeply connect with the local culture and business ecosystems through bursts of stability, while remaining short enough to avoid growing stale.

“Things are off to a fabulous start in Prague. Everyone got here safely, and the community got to know each other extremely quickly. Prague has been a perfect place to start our journey together — the beautiful buildings, great food, scenic walks, and evening activities are all things our community has fully immersed itself in. We are working hard, exploring the city, meeting new people, and having a blast. Next stop: Ljubljana,” Remote Year cofounder Sam Pessin told me.

A journey across Europe and the Caucasus with the message of Freedom and Sound Economy

A spectre is haunting Europe – the spectre of secular stagnation. What recipe does Europe need to

change the declining trend? Can Europe dream of a decade of robust economic growth? This could

definitely trigger positive effects in more areas than the obvious. To higher standards of living we

should add a cleaner environment and the elimination of the remaining pockets of poverty. But do

Europeans –and their political elites in particular– have what it takes to achieve positive economic

results?

YBN :Τα σχέδια για την επέκταση από το Κατάρ μέχρι της ΗΠΑ

Μία από τις πιο δραστήριες οργανώσεις νέων της Ελλάδας, η  Youth Business Network φαίνεται να έχει βάλει πολύ υψηλά τον πήχη σχεδιάζοντας την επέκταση της , από το Κατάρ μέχρι τις ΗΠΑ .Τα στελέχη της αλλάζουν το ένα αεροπλάνο μετά το άλλο και κάνουν διεθνείς επαφές για την εξασφάλιση επενδύσεων στην Ελλάδα , την δημιουργία θέσεων εργασίας , την παροχή εκπαιδευτικών υποτροφιών από διεθνή ινστιτούτα του εξωτερικού αλλά και την δημιουργία  ενός forum νέων επιχειρηματιών με ειδικούς τεχνοκράτες .

Screenshot_2

Ιδρύθηκε πριν από τέσσερα χρόνια από μια περιπέτεια των ιδρυτικών στελεχών της , Νίκο Κωστόπουλο και την Μαρία Αραμπατζή στην Kastamonu της Τουρκίας στα πλαίσια ευρωπαϊκού προγράμματος που παρακολουθούσαν σε συνεργασία με το Πανεπιστήμιο της Άγκυρας .Βλέποντας το κενό που υπήρχε στον χώρο της μη τυπικής εκπαίδευσης στην Ελλάδα , αποφάσισαν   όντας νέοι που είναι ενεργοί στην κοινωνία  να απευθυνθούν και σε άλλους  δημιουργικούς νέους .Όπως δηλώνουν σε συνεντεύξεις τους,  σκοπός τους είναι η προώθηση κουλτούρας δημιουργίας θέσεων εργασίας αντί αναζήτησης αυτών . Πως θα το πετύχουν αυτό  ,μα φυσικά ενημερώνοντας και εκπαιδεύοντας νέους επιχειρηματίες και  φυσικά φέρνοντας του σε επαφή με καταξιωμένους επαγγελματίες που μπορούν να τους βοηθήσουν .

Ο πρόεδρος της οργάνωσης Νίκος Κωστόπουλος , νέος επιχειρηματίας και απόφοιτος του Δημοκρίτειου Πανεπιστημίου Θράκης είναι στέλεχος σε πληθώρα μη κυβερνητικών οργανώσεων στην Ελλάδα και στην Ευρώπη , ενώ είναι το άτομο που εξασφαλίζει μέσω του Lobbying τις διεθνείς συνεργασίες της οργάνωσης . Πως στην ηλικία των 23 καταφέρνει να εδραιώσει συνεργασίες με εταιρικούς κολοσσούς , αμερικάνικα ινστιτούτα και επιχειρηματίες της Μέσης Ανατολής , ο ίδιος μας το εξηγεί στην δύναμη που αντλεί από το ανθρώπινο δυναμικό της οργάνωσης .Συνοδοιπόρος σε αυτό βρίσκεται η στενή του συνεργάτης Μαρία Αραμπατζή , πολιτικη επιστήμονας και υπεύθυνη ανθρώπινου δυναμικού στην YBN , η οποία προσπαθεί να αξιοποιήσει τους ανθρώπινους πόρους της οργάνωσης όσο πιο αποτελεσματικά μπορεί .Στην ερώτηση που της απευθύναμε , πως μπορεί η οργάνωση να προσελκύει πενήντα ως εκατό εθελοντές σε κάθε εκδήλωση απαντάει πως σημαντικό στοιχείο είναι η επιβράβευση που προσφέρουν στους εθελοντές ,είτε αυτή μεταφράζεται με δωρεάν συμμετοχή σε διεθνή συνέδρια είτε εταιρικά δώρα που προσφέρουν οι χορηγοί  της YBN

Έχοντας στο ενεργητικό τους , την διοργάνωση μεγάλων συνεδρίων όπως το RestartBalkans που έχει βραβευθεί διεθνώς ,το Greek Turkish Economy Forum ,η ακαδημία της YBN διοργανώνει σχεδόν μηνιαίες εκπαιδεύσεις νέων έχοντας στείλει νέους σε Βρυξέλλες , Μιλάνο , Βερολίνο , Κωνσταντινούπολη , Κύπρο  , Ουαλία μέχρι και το μακρινό Ταλίν της Εσθονίας .Υπολογίζεται πως πάνω από 500 νέοι έχουν επωφεληθεί από τα σεμινάρια της YBN δηλώνει ο υπεύθυνος σεμιναρίων της οργάνωσης Άγκελος Κασκάνης , πλέον υποψήφιος διδάκτορας του ΔΠΘ . Συνεργασία υπάρχει και με την Ευρωπαϊκή ένωση  μας ενημερώνει διεξοδικά η Υρώ Χατζηαθανασίου που αναλαμβάνει την διοργάνωση κοινοτικών προγραμμάτων Μάλιστα το επόμενο δίμηνο θα φιλοξενήσουν είκοσι νέους από όλη την Ευρώπη οι οποίοι θα εκπαιδευτούν στις δομές διαχείρισης κοινωνικών εταιρειών

 

Μέσω των Ευρωπαϊκών Προγραμμάτων έχουμε βάλει στόχο να γνωστοποιήσουμε  στους νέους το ισχυρότατο εργαλείο που ονομάζεται Δια βίου μάθηση .Σκοπός  μας είναι να καταστήσουμε την Ελλάδα ανάμεσα στις πιο δραστήριες χώρες της ΕΕ  που ασχολούνται με εκπαιδευτικά προγράμματα , καθώς  η εκπαίδευση μπορεί να μας προσφέρει ένα καλύτερο παρόν και ένα ακόμη καλύτερο αύριο δηλώνει η κα.Χατζηαθανασίου

Η επόμενη ερώτηση μου εύλογα θα είναι που βρίσκονται τα χρήματα για όλα αυτά τα προγράμματα ;

Η Βιβή Κωστοπούλου , υπεύθυνη οικονομικών της οργάνωσης και η Ελευθερία Τζανακούλη υπεύθυνη χορηγιών  μας κοιτάνε και χαμογελάνε . Θέλει πολύ τρέξιμο μας εξηγούν και το παν είναι οι δράσεις σου και η ποιότητα αυτών ώστε να πείσεις ιδιώτες και μη ,χορηγούς να σου παραχωρήσουν πόρους ,είτε αυτοί είναι υλικοί είτε οικονομικοί  .Μάλιστα τα στελέχη σύντομα θα ταξιδέψουν στο Κατάρ κάνοντας επαφές με χορηγούς για την επέκταση της οργάνωσης .Κομβικό σημείο είναι η ίδρυση της YBN Τουρκίας που προσελκύει χορηγούς από την Μέση Ανατολή !

Στην YBN ετοιμάζουμε εκδηλώσεις πολιτικού και κοινωνικού ενδιαφέροντος σε συνεργασία με το κίνημα Students for Liberty που θα πραγματοποιηθούν μετά τις γιορτές. Είμαστε σε  επαφή και οργανώνουμε ήδη την πρώτη μας εκδήλωση που θα έχει ως  θέμα τα οικονομικά αποτελέσματα της αποποινικοποίησης των ναρκωτικών . Ενώ έχουμε ρίξει στο τραπέζι άλλα 3 μεγαλύτερα event που θα αναλύουν καίρια οικονομικά ζητήματα .Παράλληλα η YBN έχει φιλόδοξο σχέδιο προώθησης και στην συμπρωτεύουσα πραγματοποιώντας μεταξύ μας συναντήσεις κατά τακτά χρονικά διαστήματα, στις οποίες θα γίνεται εποικοδομητική συζήτηση θέτοντας προβληματισμούς , σκέψεις, απόψεις κτλ για την πολιτική και οικονομική επικαιρότητα στις οποίες είναι όλοι ευπρόσδεκτοι , δηλώνει ο Μάρκος Στεφανίδης

Η κα.Παπαγιάννη δηλώνει πως η δουλειά της είναι μια συνεχής πρόκληση ,αλλά οι ευκαιρίες που δίνονται στους νέους είναι η κινητήριος δύναμη της παρόλο που της στερεί σημαντικό χρόνο από την προσωπική της στιγμή .

About Youth Business Network

Screenshot_11

This is an NGO established in Greece with the main objective of fostering the impact of Greek’s
professionals on the continent. Its vision is to facilitate Greece’s development and transformation
through its own young students, graduates and active entrepreneurs through practical techno-social
entrepreneurship engagement. The potential partners in this endeavour include educational
institutions,  embassies in host countries, governments, private sector and individuals. It will be
achieved by creating awareness, organising debates, providing opportunities for practical business
start-ups and facilitating peer partnerships with non-Greek counterparts. YNB is aimed towards
facilitating the development and transformation of Greece .
Five young professionals have secured funding from the Youth in Action programme
to establish a non-governmental organisation with a mission to empower young
people to set up their own businesses.

43 per cent of Greek  young people would like to set up a business

Founder Nikolaos Kostopoulos  says the organisation, called Youth Business Network , will

be a platform from which to provide moral and directional support to young people as they

foster the necessary business skills to pursue their goals.

“My role as international and EU officer and the interest in entrepreneurship lem me

traveling all over the world and make a network with young entrepreneurs.

On his return to Greece,  the national government youth agency, helped establish the right

source of funding and provided guidance on turning the initiative into an NGO.

Among a string of initiatives planned is a research pilot project in Athens to identify the

issues holding young people from taking the plunge into the business world. The group

believes the research will help fine-tune its mission statement and help it channel its

efforts more effectively.

Youth Business Network  is seeking sponsors and partners with whom it can co-ordinate

and organise initiatives like business simulations, business hubs, and workshops where

successful business people will share experiences of milestones like success, setbacks,

failure, and re-invention. It even hopes to be able to accompany aspiring entrepreneurs on

overseas trade missions in search of partners, knowledge exchange, and possibly investors.

The group hopes Youth Business Network  will establish itself as a resourceful platform

and networking facilitator to which young people can turn to for support.

“Our mission is to promote measures and

mechanisms for youth entrepreneurship, to

influence the policy of national institutions, and

promote a culture among young people of job

creation rather than job seeking.”

Turkey should curb its reliance on energy imports, the country’s deputy prime minister Bulent Arinc said at an energy conference held by the ‘International Platform for Young Entrepreneurs’ at Bilgi University in İstanbul.

“Turkey should invest more, particularly in oil, natural gas and different energy development, and should meet its energy needs though domestic means,” Arinc said, speaking at an energy conference held by the ‘International Platform for Young Entrepreneurs’ at Bilgi University in Istanbul.
“There are many problems stemming from our dependence on oil and natural gas. We are trying to overcome these problems,” Arinc explained.
The comments come after Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced on Tuesday that a third nuclear power plant in Turkey would be built by domestic experts between 2018 and 2019.
Turkey is currently dependent on foreign imports for 74 percent of its energy needs. “This puts a strain on the budget deficit and the [finance] ministry is working on ways to increase the share of renewable resources in the energy mix,” Mehmet Simsek, Turkey’s minister of finance said on Thursday.

Turkey is not only a large importer of energy, but a bridge between resources and markets, the president of BP Turkey, Bud Fackrell, said Friday.
” Turkey has been a regionalenergy hub for years,” Fackrell said, speaking at the conference “International Platform for Young Entrepreneurs” in Istanbul, organized by Istanbul’s Bilgi University.
“As a major investor in Turkey’s economy and energy sector for 100 years, with a significant presence in both downstream and upstream, BP cares a lot about Turkey,” Fackrell said.
” Turkey is also an important partner for Azerbaijan and can play a strong role in regional energy stability,” he added.
Fackrell said that global energy consumption will increase 41 percent by 2035.
“Turkey, being in the middle of existing and planned oil/gas pipelines, is a key country in realizing the $45 billion Southern Gas Corridor which is planned as an alternative energy supply to Europe.”
The Southern Gas Corridor will transport Caspian gas to European countries via Turkey.
Turkey will host over half of the facilities, and most of the integral equipment of the BP-operated Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline, Fackrell said.
The Trans-Anatolian Pipeline Project  is the Turkish phase of the Southern Gas Corridor project which will carry gas from the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea to Turkey.
The pipeline is aimed at reducing Europe’s dependency on Russian gas. The initial capacity of the Southern Gas Corridor is planned to be 16 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
 Turkey is the second biggest partner of the BP Azerbaijan project Shah Deniz, one of the world’s largest gas extraction projects, holding a 19 percent share for over 50 years.
