Behavioral Trends: Path Creators

 

Path Creators

FUCKUP NIGHTS

Failure is everywhere. Every single human being has failed at something countless times in their lifetime. Maybe, failure is even one of the few things that are guaranteed in life. Why is, then, it that people only talk about success stories in the business world? Is there really nothing to learn from our experiences of failure? Mexican-based startup Fuckup Inc. has taken these questions to heart, with their groundbreaking initiative, Fuckup Nights. These are worldwide events that have the purpose of bringing people together over their apparently negative experiences, in order to generate meaningful solutions. Over 321 cities in 90 countries have held these events, making the need for these conversations evident: We all need to know our ‘fuckups’ weren’t in vain.

SOCIALAB

Humanity, despite evolving at an accelerating rate, still has its problems, but we can’t attempt to solve 21st century problems with 20th century solutions. Socialab is an international community of problem-solvers with over 600 thousand creatives from 96 countries around the world, whose purpose is making current hardships visible and develop effective ways to eliminate them. Socialab doesn’t see problems, they see Challenges, which are proposed to a diverse group of creative minds, guided by principles of the ”Economy of Love”, in which every person has the opportunities they deserve to grow. They open up two paths of possibilities: one of personal and social growth for their creatives, and one of improvement and prosperity to the communities whose problems they’re solving.
