(held in Sweden, August 10-14)
JPropel is moving young Jewish leaders and community activists full-steam ahead this summer. For an inspiring, professional and outcome-focused 96 hours, JPropel is pooling the talents and flair of social entrepreneurs from across Europe to create a unique networking and skill-building opportunity. JPropel participants will learn useful tools and establish vital connections to effectively address current challenges in all fields of Jewish life and culture. The potential benefits to participants are significant and far reaching.
The 96-hour seminar is fittingly named JPropel as three organizations, JHub, Paideia and ROI, unite to create a catalyst for change that will "propel" the participants forward in their endeavours. The JHub-Paideia-ROI Pan European Lab is dedicated to fostering a new generation of strong and vibrant leadership for the Jewish and wider world.
In addition to the informal and strategic networking that will take place at JPropel, participants will benefit from sessions and interactive workshops aimed at developing social start-ups and at taking initiatives and projects to the next levels of success. JPropel provides a fresh avenue for brainstorming new expressions of Jewish life. Dynamic and successful Jewish leaders will join JPropel from the European Professional Symposium (P.S. Europe) to share their personal knowledge and experience to ensure effective planning and to provide novel tips for innovation.
JPropel is the peak activity of Summer of Change 2011. The seminar will be held from August 10-14 in Uppsala, Sweden.
The top sixty creative individuals and passionate community activists will gather to explore original ways for connecting to Judaism and Jewish culture and history. Among the many young and up-and-coming leaders who will be attending are social justice activists, artists, environmentalists, media and tech-gurus, educators, Israel advocates and people involved in intercultural dialogue.
If you are a:
- Creative social entrepreneur;
- Community professional;
