#HomelessEntrepreneur believes that commitment will eliminate homelessness , which is why we are going to hold a 24-hour monthly event until Barcelona eliminates homelessness. This event will include a street conference given by experts on homelessness and other relevant areas from 19h30-21h30 on the first night. All citizens who wish to share their commitment of eliminating homelessness, will then sleep in the street that night in the same area that the conference is held. The following day will be spent promoting awareness about homelessness and raising donations to eliminate it for the next #HomelessEntrepreneur. Our goal is to raise 10,000 € per month (the cost to provide housing for 1 year and create a small business for 1 homeless person) because we'd like to end up homelessness for 1 person each event we hold. Everyone will be given cardboard signs and flyers.
The third event will start on November 11th and the speakers for the street conference (19h30-21h30) will be Andrew Funk (President of #HomelessEntrepreneur), Álvaro Vives Suñé (Board Deputy Head of Andrology at Fundació Puigvert), Marcel Abbad Sort (President of Oportunitas Foundation), Jesús Martinez (Reporter and author of # HomelessEntrepreneur's 1st book, El Peso), Menchu omero (social worker) and Marcos Garrido (the 1st #HomelessEntrepreneur). The format is very simple and interactive, so eat ready to participate and speak your mind!
