1st ALUMNI-IMAGINARIUM that took place on March 7th 2012 was cosy and amazing! It was the 1st event organized by CREATIVITY & INNOVATION CLUB of AIESEC Alumni France. Seven Alumni met together and discussed about “How to contribute to joy of live and happiness of our beloved?” This was only one subject chosen by the team to be discussed during IMAGINARIUM but we had several interesting topics that participants proposed:
“How French movies could win more Oscars?”
“How to develop economic and touristic activity of my village in Normandy?”
“How to bring more people for ski trip planned in March?
“How to un-stress people in metro in the morning?
Finally HAPPINESS was the most inspiring topic that everyone liked. IMAGINARIUM was very fruitful thanks to ANALOGY – the most favorite creative technique of Leonardo da Vinci. It is based on the principle of looking for inspiration in non-related ‘universe’ (wine, mythology, politics, food, religion, etc.), and bringing ideas back and connecting them with our initial question. Results were interesting, so we wanted to share few of them with you:
We should smile more! – > …we could make a bet who will smile more during one week.
We should experiment together new things! -> …we could plan a new activity each Saturday.
We should travel around the world! -> …and could have a ‘happy travel diary’.
We should dive into Indian ocean. -> …and could connect it with a road trip across India.
We should organize “Happy Hour” each week. -> …doing things that make them happy.
We should understand what makes them ‘happy’. -> …we could create ‘Encyclopaedia of happiness’.
