Fixing the Future - Casting new ideas

Entry deadline: 31 December 2021

Change begins on a small scale, even if it has the big picture in mind. This sentence stands for the Ö1 (ORF) initiative Fixing The Future, which has been giving innovative ideas from Austria a media platform since January 2020. ORF have teamed up with the Austrian Foreign Minsitry, in particular with Cultural Foras like the ACF to identify initiatives which want to positively change the world.

Covid has reminded us how interconnected the world is, and the ways in which we rely on each other - with dramatic effects on our health, the economy and environment. Therefore, we seek exchange, to motivate each other and pool our ideas. This global repair workshop creates a place of shared learning and experimentation, leading to new collaborations.

We are looking for everything that sets impulses for change and wants to fix the future in the now, in very large or very small contexts: climate protection, combating poverty, energy turnaround, sharing initiatives, mobility, dealing with democracy and participation, research, questions about lifestyle and fashion, education, nutrition, social innovation, music and artistic performances. These all - and much more - can be starting points for improvements, part of the global repair workshop.

Join the global casting of new ideas! Tell us in a short film what you do that is new and different.
