João Brites: Energy of Will – Generating the Energy Field to Keep Going

April 18 @ 18:30 20:00

Join us for an inspirational talk and activation workshop with João Brites, the Spring 2024 Social Innovator-in-Residence invited by the ERA Chair in Social Innovation and the DESIS Lab at Nova SBE.

Development and changemaking is ‘tough work’. The challenges are sometimes so hard and insurmountable that we feel like giving up. Because every entrepreneur needs a source of energy, this workshop is about self-generating the renewable energy field, individually and collectively, that we need to keep going and to keep honing our own development and the advancement of the causes and ventures we care about. During our time together we will play games that will build community, we will share stories that will inspire new thinking and action, and we will explore how we can self-generate the energy field of will within ourselves and others to work towards the beautiful personal and collective developmental moonshots we crave for.

This event will count with a few inspiring panellists besides João Brites himself:

João Soutinho, President and Co-Founder of VERDE – Associação para a Conservação Integrada da Natureza

Joana Moreira, Executive Director of Transformers Movement

Inês Alexandre, Talent Activator Manager at GirlMoveAcademy
