A gear can transform energy into movement – following this motto for now more than two years, we have given many projects a platform to kick off successfully. Many active and talented Muslims have met at our conferences, have exchanged visions and developed new projects and ideas together. Our goal is to bring people with different skills, ideas and capacities together, enable active knowledge transfer and to promote social entrepreneurship and participation in Germany. To achieve this goal, our team is growing rapidly, as many more do not only want to watch, but actively engage and shape the world we live in.

It is especially motivating for us to see the success of the projects that have participated or emerged at our annual conferences. Some have won prize money to finalize their ideas, some are still in the growth stage and others have already established themselves as a wide and influential project.

A selection of these projects include:

  • Cube Mag – a Muslim Youth Magazine (3rd prize, 2010)
  • Hima e.V. – an Islamic environmental association
  • I-Slam – Poetry Slam (1st prize, 2011)
  • – Online video-journalism in Germany (1st prize, 2010)
  • Sira – an Audiobook of the Life of the Prophet (2nd prize, 2010)

StudyCoach – Student counseling services for migrants („Impulseprojekt 2011“)
