Leobener Logistiksommer Montanuniversität Leoben, 29. September This year, at the Leoben Logistics Summer, the digital age, in which humanity is directly located, was reflected. One thing became very clear: at the moment, Europe is not even taking a step towards rapid development on a global scale. Austria needs a (business) culture that promotes and allows innovation and diversity more. I paid special attention to the uncomfortable theme of the losers in this development: our environment, certain layers of education and society, entire countries plunging into war and poverty due to -- Read More --

There is “the danger of a single story” about the large, diverse and complicated country Afghanistan and its people. Short video clips give insights into life in Afghanistan, which otherwise receive little attention, but are no less real. War and peace, wealth and poverty, joy and sorrow, hope and despair are not mutually exclusive, but are often interwoven. To understand a country and a culture requires a wealth of information and stories. It takes more than a single story about a country or a person to paint an authentic picture. -- Read More --

About FIVESTONES

FIVESTONES
 

The title “FIVESTONES” refers to a skill game with five little stones popular with children in Afghanistan. The name of the plateform alludes to the ability to create something of value with creativity and skill. At the same time, the five stones symbolize the core values of the association: tolerance, creativity, empathy, commitment and authenticity.

The Logo
 

Das Logo zeigt die Zahl „5“ in arabischer Schrift auf einem bunten Hintergrund. Die arabische Fünf ähnelt einem umgekehrten Herzsymbol und steht für die Liebe, mit der die Projekte in FIVESTONES umgesetzt werden. Die fünf unterschiedlichen Farben im Hintergrund symbolisieren die fünf Kernwerte von FIVESTONES: Toleranz, Kreativität, Engagement, Authentizität und Empathie.

 
FIVESTONES

In doing so, the platform endeavors to track down the existing resources in the population, to use them and to bring them together in networks in order to make them effectively accessible to the common good. By using previously hidden potential, it is attempted to create added value locally and to strengthen the individual regions. By organizing events, workshops and conferences, all those people with  migrant background who wish to share their knowledge and experience in multiculturalism, integration and peace work will be given time and space. At the same time, through its willingness to cooperate, the platform also functions as a central institution in the Afghan-Austrian Diaspora, initiating, designing, organizing and coordinating new projects.

 

 
feeding the good wolf

Legend has it that in every human being there is a lifelong battle for dominance between two wolves.

One is a bad wolf. It is hatred, rage, envy, pain, greed, arrogance, self-pitty.
The other is a good wolf: It is love, joy, peace, kindness, humility, goodwill, empathy.

Which wolf is going to win the battle and control our lives?

The winner will be the one we feed.

We want to feed the good wolf in us human beings, so it grows stronger and comes to light more and more.
