We are Diversion
Looking at social issues from a new perspective. That is what our team of young, experienced professionals has been doing since 2003. We tackle societies’ challenges through the development of creative concepts. We are pioneers in collaborating with cultural and social institutions, authorities, businesses and those who apply themselves to achieve a better future.
Enterprising and involved
Entrepreneurship, creativity, organisational ability and involvement: Diversion applies these attributes during the conceptual development. Concepts that will enable us to solve social issues. We want to be the best. And as our name suggests, we gladly make small detours to reach that point. We view society from different viewpoints. We tackle the issues by devising original solutions and by raising social capital. We consider it to be social innovation.
Diversion feels involved with everything going on in society and is inspired by people who stick their necks out to achieve progress. We want our work to contribute towards a better future. We do this through partnerships with people and organisations that take social responsibility and by developing of our own initiatives, designed to surprise and enthuse.
We primarily devise and implement concepts for and with people and organisations with social ambition. These include authorities, housing associations, social organisations but cultural institutions and companies as well. We have a wide scope; we gladly devise creative solutions for strategic issues, enjoy the challenge of making major political themes accessible and are yet also energised by organising an event.
Diversion and peer education
The use of youngsters to solve social issues and to reach other youths. Diversion applies the peer education method to support organisations seeking to develop lasting relationships with young target groups. We use young role models to bring subjects into discussion that many youths find boring, that have a cultural taboo or are politically sensitive. Key to our approach is using the young person’s environment as the starting point, entering into positive confrontations and investing in young community leaders who want to make a difference.
How we work
Our agency for social innovation consists of a team of young, experienced professionals from varied backgrounds. We care, are creative and enthusiastic. We are always looking for collaboration with people and organisations with social ambition. Our scope is wide; we gladly devise creative solutions for strategic issues, enjoy the challenge of making major political themes accessible and are yet also energised by organising an event.
Do you know an interesting project or an inspiring example of peer education from anywhere around the world you want to let us know about? Would you like to know more about our vision on social innovation, on engaging young people or on our experience with organizing projects? We would like to share our knowledge and for example translate one of our projects to another country. Or the other way around, do you have an inspiring project you think would be interesting to translate to the Dutch context?
