It’s time to share the inspiring organisations and the wonderful people that I, Karolien from Look Up, follow. Read more on Personal Inspiration (4).

  • Ideapod (Ideapod, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube)
    Ideapod is a publishing and education platform providing products that help people to escape from societal and educational conditioning so they can live life on their own terms.
  • Voluntary Service Overseas (Voluntary Service Overseas, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube)
    Voluntary Service Overseas brings people from different backgrounds, expertise and experiences together to fight poverty. Last year 7,475 volunteers worked alongside partners, communities and institutions to support 1.5 million people across education, health and livelihoods initiatives. VSO makes a difference in 23 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Pacific, focusing on improving the health, education and livelihoods of the most marginalised in society.
  • Spaceship Media (Spaceship Media, Facebook, Twitter and Medium)
    Spaceship Media launched in 2016 with a mission to reduce polarisation, build communities, and restore trust in journalism. Careful listening and empathy are vital to supporting meaningful civic dialogue and easing polarisation and we believe journalism is essential in that process – which ultimately strengthens our democracy. To do that right, the best journalistic values — fairness, thorough research, accuracy — must be held to now more than ever.
  • Power of Positivity (Power of Positivity, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube)
    Power of Positivity’s mission is to plant, nurture, and grow positive energy in the hearts and minds of everyone, allowing them to create a better life and a more beautiful planet in alignment with the highest good.
  • Evergreen Canada (Evergreen Canada, Facebook, and Twitter)
    Evergreen is helping make cities flourish. Cities that are low carbon, inclusive to all and sustainable at their core. Cities to live, move, work, play, learn and thrive in.

    Since 1991, Evergreen has been facilitating change. Working with other city builders to convene, collaborate and catalyse ideas into action. Their teams connect with many stakeholders to lead with a mindset focused on solutions. Evergreen collaborates to develop innovative ideas and catalyse change by testing solutions, developing prototypes and scaling projects.

    Through their award-winning suite of programs, they have actively engaged Canadians in creating and sustaining healthy urban environments in our schools, our public spaces, in housing and transit systems, and communities themselves.
