New Year has begun and we’re summing up all exciting and beautiful moments that left mark on 2015. We have celebrated our first birthday, participated in significant local and international projects, but most importantly though our quests participants have discovered a different Belgrade. Cultural heritage and education of our explorers is really important to us as we plan to stress them more in the future.
Happy New Year, have a lovely time during the holidays and may 2016 be the year full of adventures and new places that you can explore.
Third edition of training “Entrepreneurs for Social Change” organized by United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and Fondazione CRT was held in Turin. From over 1200 applications from all over the Euro-Mediterranean region only 20 young social entrepreneurs were selected and one of them was our Dunja. During the training with mentors, trainers and last year’s participants we had opportunity to learn about all aspects of successful business development. Some of the topics that we covered on the workshops were: motivation, leadership, storytelling, pitching, fundraising… We also worked on our business models.
During our stay in Turin we had opportunity to visit some of the social enterprises, coworking space, La Stampa headquarters and to meet mayor.
International contacts and other people’s view were significant for our development. The BeoQuest idea was recognized as something with big potential and invitations for future partnerships opening a lot of new possibilities for us. This is just the beginning of a story since after training we have 9 months opportunity to work with mentors in order to empower our social impact, to draw attention on Belgrade’s cultural heritage and create new work places for youngsters.
We hope that enthusiasm and positive energy, that participants brought with them, will have significant imprint on all projects development as it will influence us. Hopefully soon our paths will cross again and somewhere we will meet E4SC people.
Last year students had the opportunity to join our quests, discover Belgrade and meet new colleagues. We were exploring the city and learning life hacks which make studies easier.

Ne možemo da verujemo da je prošlo već godinu dana kako otkrivamo Beograd zajedno sa vama, svaki dan naučimo nešto novo i uživamo u ozarenim licima koja su upravo upoznala našu prestonicu malo bolje. Slavlje su upotpunili BeoQuest prijatelji koji su bili uz nas na svakom koraku i pomagali u svakom trenutku.
Oduvali smo prvu svećicu i nastavljamo punom parom! Za još bolje potrage i još puno godina druženja – živeli!

You know when you say that you know your town as good as your pockets? And then you find in your pocket something you’ve been searching for ages. Or you didn’t even know it’s there! Well, that’s how I felt first time I joined the quest.
I came to the meeting point sure in myself and my knowledge of city details. But then I read first couple of questions. So for the first time I realized I cant use only my knowledge but need to improvise – ok, I have no idea what next, look around, search for the answer. And really, no matter how much you walked around the town, there is always something that you’ve missed. Good thing is that others are missing those details as well so we discovered them together. Many different questions give the opportunity for everyone to participate and the game is not dull for a second. On the contrary, although not of the same tempo all the time, the game is always at it’s peek. The best thing is that event when you finish the quest it doesn’t actually end – because you start seeing things differently and you continue to learn new – low things about this wonderful city.
From the initial ideas to execution, BeoQuest – Belgrade quests are great way to have fun and substitute the games from our childhood while satisfying our inner detectives.
Kroz BeoQuest potrage možete da vidite skrivene detalje grada, a kroz ovaj album lokacije gde su snimane neke od scena kultnih filmova domaće kinematografije. Beograd nam omogućava da radimo i dobro se zabavimo. Ovo je naš način da mu se zahvalimo! 😀
Napomena: Delite slike, ali ne uklanjajte BeoQuest oznaku jer smo mi autori svih fotografija. Hvala! 🙂
