This is an experiment. A deep dive into humanity. It is about common values and drivers that make people who they are. It is about motivation, purpose, collaboration, creative minds, joy and how to bring them into everyday life.
In the ups and downs of the COVID-19 pandemic, with all the restrictions and social (physical) distancing, I am trying to spread my wings and discover the world. Better: Discover people in their real world environment and tell their stories. Since spring 2020, I have met a great number of people from all over the world who I wouldn’t have known, had the pandemic never happened. Most of these people I have never met in reality. Still, they have become dear to me.
I met most of them via Zoom, week after week, every Wednesday at 5 pm CET, at the Wednesday Web Jam, short WWJ. The jam has been the initial spark for more groups and initiatives, exchange and encounters. On my stroll through the global village, I have experienced great openness for collaboration and experimentation, and this has enriched my life a lot. Hence, I will enlarge the focus. And isn’t a Wednesday as good as any day in the week, to start something new? So, here’s to new beginnings.
