The finishing touches

Since two weeks we have been intensively working together with other two teams on our final video storyboard. After the first approval of the whole teams work from our tutor Sebastian, we had a hangout with Nancy, who brought some new ideas about the video’s production. Instead of making it very theoretical and informative with infographics, she proposed to have it more like a story thread with some maybe characters in it. It should get a viewer’s attention by it’s creative approach, especially as our goal is reaching out young people, and still be informative with its clear content.

Yesterday with other production managers, Charlotte and Razvan, we edited the script leaving only  necessary information to explain the problem, current NGO’s situation and solution how we are willing to help them. We will combine filming two inspiring people who are involved in water sports  and some basic infographics to give the general information about IWF as it is the easiest way to bring up facts to the video. We aim that the final result would be clear, informative and of course inspiring to take an action towards the world with fresh water for everyone.

Success vs Failure

To recognize a failure is a fundamental key while moving towards the success. From the beginning of this project our team had up and downs each week while thinking of a last and solid proposal to our NGO. On week 4 we had this essential change in our strategy after a long discussion with Francois, IWF founder. Rather than connecting young water enthusiasts only trough social media we can bring together proactive youngsters though crowd-sourcing. Me, we and networks week led us to a right direction towards creating a platform for local youth networks, which will work as a potential and future-orientated initiative for IWF.

We believe that with our proposal we can fulfil our NGO needs to spread love for water message. However, it requires not only enthusiasm, which can be a driving key in the beginning for young surfers or swimmers, but also a strong partnership within those water related groups and of course the constant contact with IWF itself.

Watch and share - I AM NOT AN ARTIST - AN ANIMATED GIF PARANOIA ABOUT NONSTOP DESIGN WORKERS
I reckon that each of our team’s member had some difficulties and doubts to go though this whole period of the project communities class. Personally I had a struggle to commit to my role as production manager as I didn’t have a clue what is happening and what will happen. This week we have finally visualised our result, we’ve made a storyboard for a final video. It is a standpoint for me when I can actually see what we have already achieved during this short period. I must say that I believe in our success, but the failures often launch us into better opportunities too, right?

Storyboard for Solutions

Script Solutions for IWF

Our Proposal Youth
networks that create a platform for the IWF to engage young people in
their work. Our team think that would be the impact for our NGO, because young people has a
lot of energy and potential. It can be really helpful, because everything starts from young
individual who in the future will face problems. If IWF will start with it, the love for water will grow
towards the generations and become like daily routine in everybody’s life.

Water Stahili

Looking back at week 1.4, where we introduced the theme of tech stewardship, we received some great feedback on what we have to offer when it comes to Google services. The Interhague team contacted us and was asking for some more guidance as they were thinking of using google as a predominant tool for their NGO.

And I think that is what Tech Stewardship also entails – helping communities other than your own. Most of the time teaching enables you to get a better idea of what you are doing and sharing our knowledge creates a fantastic environment for collaboration.

After this hangout I took some time to think the idea of cross NGO collaboration a bit further and the ideas seemed to be noteworthy. The other NGO groups are part of our extended network and might even benefit from our work and vice versa. The International water foundation is looking into ways to engage you people in their work of sharing water. We are currently working on a network structure to enable groups of teenagers to become active.

Stahili uses education as a tool to end exploitation, keep children together, and break the cycle of poverty.

Would it not be an amazing project to give creative projects to those kids? Wouldn’t they benefit from having their say in the debate and become active? What if we made them part of our proposed network?

In the next week we will further explore what is possible and probably have another hangout with the Interhague group to brainstorm. This is what I love about group work, it enables you to break open the routines of thinking and make new connections – between people as well as your thoughts.

Let us know in the comments what you think of this cross NGO idea and if you have any suggestions/feedback for us!

Alan with Yasin

Hi there,

here we have some useful advices from Alan Levine about how to make an

attractive and efficient video for our NGO, like ‘How to record a high quality

video’ and ‘ what should be the content’.

Our Sweet Spot is founded!

We got on the same page! Our team’s diversity and curiosity led us to learn a new working structure, based on consecutive weekly assignments, not only on the final result. At this point, we started following STARR reflections method. It stands for Situation, Task, Action, Result and Relate:

  1. Describing a situation we want to reflect upon.
  2. Explaining our tasks in the situation.
  3. Describing very concrete actions we took.
  4. Describe the results of our actions.
  5. Reflecting: what went right or wrong.

That’s how we discovered our Sweet Spot, which is based on both the NGO’s goals and the organisational team’s mission.
