German mathematician and physicist Albert Einstein once said: "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." In this weeks episode of Startup Playground Podcast, you will be able to hear about the famous Danish bicycle culture which started in the 1930s. Since then the bicycle has become a widespread symbol of equality and freedom not only in Denmark but in many countries around the World. Therefore, to understand this phenomenon, in this episode we hosted actual Dane and Copenhagener - Oliver Emil Andersen - Founder of Behind Handlebars. His passion is his business. and his goal is to inspire people to bike and use the bike as a tool for pleasure and exploration.WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER BICYCLE AS YOUR PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION VEHICLE?Because it is cheap, fast, convenient.... and you get plenty of fresh air and exercise. What's not to like. A personal message from Oliver: " The realization I had a couple of years ago was that I didn’t really know my city. I took the details for granted; the architecture, the views and everything that makes Copenhagen unique. I wanted to change that. I wanted to get that feeling of wonder that you get when you visit a city for the first time. I grabbed my bike and decided to go see some of the attractions that tourists see when they visit Copenhagen. Instead of just pedalling past it as I normally did, I stopped. Stopped and actually looked at my city. It was wonderful!"

Goods things happen if you wait and put your words into action. In this weeks episode of Startup Playground Podcast, you are gonna hear about the generation that grew up with the internet, technology and social media, which established a stereotype that they are anti-social, “social justice warriors” and tech addicts. However, to understand better this generation, we have decided to host Gen Z expert and Co-founder of RELEVO., Jahanzeeb Ahmed. A startup that advises companies, non-profits and organisations on understanding the youth.  WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE YOUTH? Understanding the youth has been a growing challenge among companies, organizations and institutions. This is because, with each new generation, the group becomes more complex. You can say that Generation Z, is a product of its environment. Growing up in a digital and globalized era has allowed them to obtain characteristics that no other generation has. In order for the economy to continue in a positive direction, and for companies to understand the needs of their current or soon to be consumers, they must understand the way the youth - lives, breathes and thinks. Therefore RELEVO., through its services, bridges the gap by giving insight and data into the youth demographic, both due to the fact that they themselves are part of the targeted audience and through their community. Read more about this youth startup RELEVO here: https://relevo.dk/en/home/ .CREDITS* THE ENTREPRENEUR OR THE ORGANISATION HOSTED ON THIS EPISODE HAS NOT SPONSORED THIS EPISODE, AS WELL AS THIS EPISODE IS NOT SPONSORED BY ANY ORGANISATION OR COMPANY.

"Eight million children worldwide are in orphanages and up to 90% of these children are not actually orphans”. / Save the ChildrenOn this episode, you will be able to listen to advocate for responsible voluntourism Eva Cian, The Co-founder of NGO PILOT. Together with her, we will try to understand some global issues caused by voluntourism and shed some light on this so-called feel good by doing good travel. WHY SHALL WE CARE ABOUT VOLUNTOURISM? Every year westerners go abroad to volunteer and what we do know is that the popular travel type is seen as a do-good feel-good vacation but what is not looked closely enough at is the fact that volunteering abroad rarely have the positive impact you might think it has. If young people are not equipped to work with at-risk children in their home country why should they be able to do so abroad?Unregistered NGOs, for-profit travel agencies and volunteers unfit for the jobs, make voluntourism a multi-billion dollar market with a non-sustainable and truly damaging agenda. If you would like to understand how can you contribute to making this industry more sustainable, contact Eva Cian here.CREDITS* THE ENTREPRENEUR OR THE ORGANISATION HOSTED ON THIS EPISODE HAS NOT SPONSORED THIS EPISODE, AS WELL AS THIS EPISODE IS NOT SPONSORED BY ANY ORGANISATION OR COMPANY.

In this weeks episode of Startup Playground Podcast, you are gonna hear about upcycling. You will be able to understand what is upcycling and why is it a better choice for the environment rather than just throwing your textile waste in landfill. Therefore, Sweetcast Media hosted Lili Dreyer - Founder of WAIR - startup aiming to give textile waste a second chance. They don’t see used textiles as waste, but as valuable material, that they can use to make awesome and sustainable footwear.WHY UPCYCLING OF TEXTILE WASTE?There are many industries that contribute to the environmental problems that the world is currently facing, but few as much as the fashion industry. Despite its pretty facade, the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry globally. Fast fashion has resulted in millions of tonnes of resource-intensive textiles being produced for fashion items, only for them to be thrown away after increasingly shorter lifespans. The circular economy is critical in preventing this. Fashion upcycling means to transform textile waste into new products with the same or higher value, and therefore plays an important role in achieving a circular economy. However upcycling is not a widespread practice, which is due to the fact that it is difficult to make scalable and profitable. Wair is here to change that, by giving textile waste a second chance by transforming it into upcycled shoes.Read more about this sustainable startup - WAIR here: https://www.sustainablewair.com/  and reach out to them if you would like your next shoes to be sustainable.

American professor and psychologists Dan Gilbert once said that “The reason most of us are unhappy most of the time is that we set our goals, not for the person we’re going to be when we reach them — we set our goals for the person we are when we set them.” Which leads to the question, how to actually set the right goals? What is your Northstar? Therefore, in this week's episode, you will be able to hear from Levi Yosef - Founder of Leaty, how to make your first step toward success and switch from being passive to actually involved in life. HOW TO SET THE RIGHT GOALS? Before setting any goals, you need to understand your core values. Don+t mistake someone else's goals for yours - this is a recipe for misery and stagnation. Use your goals as your Northstar and gather real data out of your experience, to quickly identify the right direction for yourself. Keeping that in mind, think about the resources to your disposal and how these can enable you to collect that data, whether it is a person you can talk to, or a project you can participate in. But remember that it's important to set goals that you can start with right away and that are measurable. And step by step, you continuously get closer to becoming the person you want to be.Base them on your core values Think about the next step to achieve themMakes them actionable and measurable Test them and revise at the later pointIf you would like to understand more about how to set the right goals for you, contact Levi Yosef and start achieving your goals.CREDITS* THE ENTREPRENEUR OR THE ORGANISATION HOSTED ON THIS EPISODE HAS NOT SPONSORED THIS EPISODE, AS WELL AS THIS EPISODE IS NOT SPONSORED BY ANY ORGANISATION OR COMPANY.
