What is Melting Pot?
Melting Pot means a mix of cultures in our society. We would like to represent the mix of cultures in dishes. We believe that food connects people and provide solidarity and love. We’ll give asylum seekers, our social target group, a daily activity by creating a catering company where they are given the opportunity to prepare their home countries dishes. Individuals and companies, our commercial customers, can taste food from a variety of countries.

CosyStudying responds in the first place to the lack of places to study at the campus of high schools or universities. The fact that many students in this period search a place to study, leads to timewasting. This problem will lead to poor learning outcomes, low school performance and individual learning paths. All these effects cost a lot of money to the government. A quiet place offering to students where they can study, is the purpose of CosyStudying. This will be reached to let students studying at dwelling retiree older people.

Today we speak about raising ecological awareness more often and much louder. Even so all of us can see that the implementation of it in reality has still been on its lowest and hasn’t truly become a part of our values. We believe that it can be changed if we progressively bring into modern and more interesting approach to ecology, mostly within our younger generations. This issue of global awareness and minimized global reaction made us think about different ways we could use to start a change around us. We feel that we should start affecting locally to provide an example, but our ideas and further activities should interlink wider areas of our society.
By seeing the real picture of our environment, community and what we pass off as ideal, we created this project Eco(re)action. It has a main purpose of linking creativity, innovation, young population and ecology. With this project we want to answer a few fundamental social needs, such as upbringing of a child that has become more unstable because of the negative influence of computerization and modern technology that make harmful content very accessible; and environment that has been neglected for rapture with urban lifestyle, technological advancement, mass production and responding to more luxurious needs of our society.
Exactly by influencing a younger mindset through actual activity, they can be initiating changes while growing up and with that come values that can further affect our community and later the society.

For the service waiters contract with newly trained as “waiters, and auxiliary gastronomy” intellectual disability. It is intended that the members of each link in the value chain that enable service delivery are made up of people with disabilities, in order to give the consumer a differentiated service.
The aim of incluser is to transform the reality of people with disabilities, by making them visible and economically active citizens, promoting equal opportunities among people, and helping to overcome the situation of vulnerability in which they live. The chosen name of the company is “IncluSer”, which tries to reflect the distinctive feature of the company, not based on being inclusive by nature.
Today’s world is facing a host of social challenges and problems that simply cannot be ignored. As students, we are aware that we must not be passive observers of what is happening around us, but we need to use our energy and ideas to improve the quality of life in our community. Social issues such as unemployment, poverty, a gap between the rich and the poor cannot be fully addressed without the cooperation of all stakeholders. Furthermore, young people should be the initiators of positive social changes and equal participants in solving problems in their community. One of the major social problems faced by almost all countries is the insufficient inclusion of people with certain behavioral disorders, and the same applies to Croatia. The awareness of this problem prompted us to launch a business venture that would contribute to the inclusion of such persons, but also address other important challenges such as ecological disposal of used furniture and prolonging its life. People with certain behavioral disorders are often younger, so we believe that this proposed venture recognizes their needs and provides activities that are aimed at solving their problems.
