#btconf Düsseldorf, Germany 08 - 10 Nov 2021

We are delighted that so many wonderful partners join us – sometimes for many years already – and help creating beyond tellerrand in the way it is. Not only do they help to keep the ticket prices affordable, but they are also giving their best to present themselves in a way that fits the audience. Therefore a big “Thank you!” to all Partners for their active support of the event. Without this massive support it is not possible to organise it and to keep beyond tellerrand alive!

If you think of joining the beyond tellerrand family and are interested in getting more information about what the benefits are and what is included, please let me know and I will directly get in touch with you.

Digitalization means more than just using new technologies. Today, companies that consistently think and act digitally are the most successful in the world. This is where we come in.
We support and guide companies in the insurance and lottery industries as they strike out in new directions: learning to understand their own customers better. Refining their brands. Opening up new distribution channels and technologically orienting themselves around the most modern players in the market – or even setting new standards themselves.

The engine of our success are the people at sum.cumo – a bunch of very creative and passionate enthusiasts in the areas of digital consulting, ux, marketing and of course developer, who love trying out new things and are striving for approaches that successfully establish real, disruptive innovations.

Education for Everyone!

Makuyuni

Makuyuni

One of my volunteers approached me at last year’s Berlin edition of beyond tellerrand. He told me about a project he started together with a few other people to bring education to parts in our world, where it is not self-evident. I love the idea and am totally up for it to support it. I want to get the word out and like to help them raising money. This is donation based and you are able to donate whatever you want.

Makuyuni e.V. is a private organisation in Germany that believes in the right to education for everyone, everywhere in the world. Their mission to provide “Education For All” means giving 264 million people worldwide the basic human right to receive education.

They started in Makuyuni, Tanzania – and that is why this is the organisation’s name. It’s a non-profit association founded in September 2018 by Jan Grandisch and Andreas Klein in Cologne.

In the year of their foundation they received €5000 in donations that they invested entirely in their school’s building project in Tanzania.

In concrete terms, this means that they already have given around 30 children the chance to have lessons in a new third classroom through new school desks, tables, and other essential learning materials. They also provide support for teaching structures at the school, such as the planned introduction of curricula.

Another important point is that they work according to the principle of helping people to help themselves and make it possible to set up educational structures rather than actively pursuing them. This means that they provide their friend Lalahe with support, ideas, and resources on-site, who then implements and coordinates the work himself.

We Empower Kids!

skate-aid

skate-aid

skate-aid is a non-profit organization (NGO) from Germany, that provides extensive child and youth Services through the pedagogical power of skateboarding. Since it was founded in 2009 by skateboard pioneer Titus Dittmann, skate-aid has implemented projects for disadvantaged kids and teenagers worldwide. In our projects we build skate parks in countries like Uganda, Namibia, Rwanda and Palestine and recently opened our newest skate park in Damascus/Syria in cooperation with the SOS Children's Villages. Especially in areas where social abuses and difficult living conditions prevail, we support kids in their development and encourage self-determined learning and intrinsic motivation. In addition, we offer orientation aid, contribute to gender equality and enable an increase in self-esteem, community awareness, personal responsibility and determination. The skate parks and the skateboard are the necessary tools to provide sustainable support through our workshops. The kids learn to get up after falling down. This strengthens their personality and takes away their fear of facing new challenges later in life. That’s our mission: we empower kids!

In particular, the following measures enable skate-aid to carry out its mission in the projects every day and thus providing genuine socialization-, prevention- and peace work:

  • Construction and maintenance of skate parks as safe pedagogical socialization rooms with free access and support as well as structured leisure activities for kids and teenagers regardless of age, religion, skin color, social class and gender
  • Participatory involvement of kids and teenagers in all activities promoting cognitive and social skills
  • Carrying out free skateboard lessons (workshops) to promote self-determined personality development, resilience, integration and inclusion
  • Free provision of skateboards, accessories and safety gear
  • Implementation and promotion of national and international sporting events
  • Implementation and promotion of youth exchange programs for the purpose of reducing cultural barriers and prejudices
  • Carrying out special continuing education workshops for kids and teenagers on sensitive topics such as racism, drug abuse, environmental pollution, discrimination or AIDS
  • Conducting projects and actions that support young people, promote their individual and social development, provide them with life and guidance and open new perspectives to them

Our mission is successful when we help kids and teenagers on their way to adulthood, becoming self-confident, enlightened, creative, enthusiastic, committed, courageous, persevering, frustration-tolerant and active individuals in their society. Especially where adverse living conditions such as war and conflict, poverty, racism and much more can endanger their positive development.

We’re working on it. Our Mission: We empower kids!
