What is enkel?

ENKEL IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE IN PERTH THAT WORKS TO INSPIRE, SUPPORT AND ENGAGE CHANGEMAKERS.

WE BELIEVE THAT WE NEED NEW APPROACHES AND MORE PEOPLE TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS OF TODAY AND TOMORROW.

TO ACHIEVE THIS, WE NEED TO CREATE A NEW GENERATION OF CHANGEMAKERS.

People from all walks of life, who see opportunities in solutions to today’s challenges. People who help others and the world around them. People who work towards positive change.

Vision

OUR VISION IS A PLACE OF IDEAS WHERE PEOPLE ARE EMPOWERED TO CREATE BRIGHTER FUTURES.

We work towards this vision by consulting to organisations, running innovation labs, organising courses, connecting and supporting changemakers and communities, as well as much more. All this work is aligned with and reinforces our values, the four C's; Courage, Community, Conscience and Creativity. The detailed definitions of these, and the enkel values map are found here.

Invitation

We currently work on several projects, and invite you to be part of them. This is an opportunity to test your own ideas in a group of dedicated changemakers, to gain experience and to have impact on the world around you. By joining the enkel community you will collaborate with a group of big picture thinkers with many ideas who get lots of things done. If this sounds exciting to you, and if you or your organisation would like to collaborate with enkel in any way, we would love to hear from you.

 @adamjorlen from enkel helping the people of @cityofvincent imagine the future of their community at today's #imaginevincent event. A shift towards a citizen-led society? #cocreation #globalshift #postnormal #futures #newpossibilities #changemakers #perth #cityofvincent #northperth #leederville #mtlawley #mthawthorn #beaufortstreet #highgate #perthlife  In the mail today: Designing Regenerative Cultures.

The theme was 'waste' but all futures that were co-designed went bigger than that, explored deeper issues like consumer behaviour, circular economics and the systems our society is built upon. Energy, environment, transport, food, community and technology are some factors which must be considered when creating new solutions for recycling and waste minimisation. Thanks Dr Ben Chan from the MIT Presencing Institute Asia, @townofvicpark and our own @bevjohnsonau for helping us make these discussions happen.  #townofvictoriapark #newpossibilities #changemakers #westernaustralia #recycling #waste #upcycle #repaircafe #makermovement #perth with @treadingmyownpath @vicparkcollective @vicparktransition @jonisercombe @adamjorlen @go2cup #vicpark #vicparklife #sustainability #resusablecoffeecup  Work outside the enkel Naval Store progressing well. Stairs leading down to the entrance are now in place. ✅ #enkelnavalstore #newpossibilities #westernaustralia #fremantle #changemakers #freo  This morning: Very bizarre that this creation shifted our thinking to a completely new level and helped us better understand how enkelU - our upcoming school for changemakers - might work. Drawing, building, sculpturing challenges and possibilities can lead to amazing results. #changemakers #designthinking #sculpture #challenge #creativity #creation #balloons #clotheshanger #metaperspective #perth #westernaustralia #newpossibilities  Happy Monday everyone!
