1. Made during the Changemakercamp in Kassel. Between 9-14 Oct 2011 40 Changemakers from different countries got together to work on 5 different social issues. One group started a visual anthropological exploration of the lives of elderly people in Kassel, as a way of finding out more about what elderly people need to live at home. This was a question raised by a research group that designs products for elderly at the University of Kassel.

    In order to find out what elderly people need, we firstly need to know more about their outlook on the world: what makes them happy, what do they wish for the future, what does their day to day life look like? The film about Frau Teichmann is made by 2 Changemakers, Sebastian & Kim, who learned about anthopology, filmmaking and its purpose while making this film. We hope you enjoy it!

Between 9-14 Oct 2011 the 1st ChangemakerCamp took place in Kassel. The ChangemakerCamp manifactures the ideas for the future of the world we live in. Through co-creative work of students, lecturers of various fields in university, members of companys, institutions and organsiations regional and worldwide we make a contribution to a just society. This process will give birth to innovative solutions for social problems, new products and concepts helping people and preserving the environment.

We work in small groups and in plenum through action learning and design thinking on questions which have been delivered by people of our network. They serve as examples to learn und use new methods of co-creating. At the same time all participants work on real life problems and can become a changemaker while they are educated in the ChangemakerCamp. We work process oriented with recreational breaks of movement, excursion and celebration.

The questions worked on ranged from finding new ways to use a chip which registers who you have interacted with, giving shape to a new type of education that prepares people to work to make a difference in society, to researching what elderly people need to live at home. The latter was studied by means of a visual anthropological exploration. The group was lead by Visual Anthropologist Esther Maagdenberg (http://www.esthermaagdenberg.com). The results of this group are presented in this channel. We hope you enjoy it!
