Successful start for DOPDA.Space

At the Social Innovation Summit 2018 in Stuttgart, a DOPDA.Space was set up for the first time as a place for relaxation and physical activity promotion at a congress. Not only the organizers spoke of "a clear appreciation of the entire event", but also speakers and visitors were enthusiastic. Thanks to the great attention that DOPDA.Space received, new, forward-looking opportunities opened up for DOPDA. So you can continue to be curious ...

Our first DOPDA.Space consisted of a sitting area, a relaxation area, a creative corner and a sale for tea and energy snacks. As varied as the needs of the participants was, so differently have the different offers been used. This was particularly evident in the relaxation area: this resulted in a balanced dynamic between active, guided offers such as martial arts and self-defense units or yoga and meditation exercises and quiet phases that invited, with the help of blankets and pillows, for individual relaxation. Both the active and the quiet sessions were very well received by the numerous visitors! They immediately used the energy they had gained to discuss - not only in the sitting area - excitedly with each other and with our founder Björn and to talk about opportunities for cooperation in particular but not only with DOPDA. In all the activities and discussions, only the offer to get creative with LEGO or to create their own stress balls were not used as expected.

The presence of DOPDA.Space at the Social Innovation Summit (SIS) was only possible with the support of the congress organizers, who provided the room and clearly presented our program as an interesting offer. The fact that DOPDA.Space was an ideal complement to the SIS18 was made clear in particular by the fact that - stimulated by our offer - well-being in personal and corporate areas as well as mindfulness and the establishment of holistic movement concepts were also discussed in other rooms. We were also able to encourage participants who did not visit the DOPDA.Space to think about their stress levels and self-protection.

In summary, our DOPDA.Space made a tremendous impact, participants used it for a relaxed break and we enriched the summit with health and well-being topics. Now we are working on the experiences made to optimize our DOPDA.Space and to develop it flexibly and individually.
