    A selection of Projects that I have worked on


    16+ years of initiating and delivering sustained results and effective change

    Co-evolutionary Leadership//Win Cube//Social Design//Axiological Action//Holonomic(s) Approach//Transition Design


    The project had a predefined budget of absolute zero. This parameter applied to the planning and execution of all deliverables, assessment criteria, and control satisfactory factors (CSFs). All participants had to use social engineering and sustainable innovation in order to achieve strategic objectives.

    The campaign aimed at:

    1. Acknowledge the benefits of immigration by crafting a positive, new narrative on integration: Developing sustainable communities and intercultural dialogue
    2. Crafting a positive narrative on migration based on social, cultural and economical benefits deriving from it.
    3. Inspire political engagement and active citizenship by bringing together, citizens, civic societies, migrants and refugees, public & private sector, international organizations, Academia and media around the globe into a dialogue on the problems and sustainable solutions on Migration Crisis developed in “Migrant Integration Lab”.
    4. Building social impact
    We can only hope that our story will improve public and private sector partnerships and build linkages between migration and governance for prosperity and development, with sustainable ways of working together in a Transnational Context.

    International Festival "La Nuit des arts et des Mondes"

    The Festival is an exercise in cultural democracy, in which cultural practitioners speak for themselves, with each other, and to the public. The mission of our Intercultural Festival is to promote inclusion and to enhance the cultural heritage by highlighting the people and cultures that make up our community.


    The purpose is to celebrate all cultures’ uniqueness and value. Our Intercultural Festival is a completely non-profit organization event dedicated to celebrating the diversity and includes unique performances, authentic food, children’s activities, opera, total art exhibition, cultural displays, workshops, conferences and much more.

    We host this event as a way to recognize the ways in which we are all diverse.

    The social sector is facing disruption. There is demand for new ideas, products, services, stakeholders, and relationships to overcome pressing societal challenges, and yet demand for support continues to outpace the supply of funding and services.


    The Social Impact Lab is responding to this disruption by investing in innovation and creating strategic partnerships that support the social sector that solve social issues. We aim identifying innovative and disruptive projects that have the potential to transform our community. We bring together a variety of stakeholders, facilitating multi-partner collaboration between agencies, corporations, and citizens.


    We promote and teach a systemic approach to social innovation, research, and human-centered innovation. The lab is co-lead, co-designed and co-implemented by B1-AKT's two founders Yannick Le Guern and Laura Petrache.

    Our sustainable social and business models are creating a larger awareness and social Impact.
