A successful model: visionary sessions across Central and Eastern Europe and the magic of knowledge finally organized. After this first successful year, we continued the yearly transformational learning journeys, evolving the modules with time and reaching participants in new sectors. In 2019/20 we teamed up with Ashoka regional offices and partners across Central and Eastern Europe to organize modules in 5 cities: Bucharest, Budapest, Prague, Vienna and Warsaw.


After this truly regional program, COVID made us turn to online and offline sessions out of Vienna. To provide top-quality, ready-to-use content we set up a franchising model, coordinated by the Ashoka Visionary Academy aka the team in Vienna and developed scaling strategies to expand the program to more regions (find out more about our growth below!). The program, also thanks to the leaders who joined it and learned from its content, served as a spark for more processes in the international Ashoka community to organise and share knowledge. An example: the Ashoka Systems Change Masterclass, available online to everyone interested.
