By 28th October 2017Semi-finalists

Anxiety and bullying are the main threats to student well-being, their creativity, teamwork skills and basically their ability to learn. Creating a safe and encouraging learning environment, helps them developing the social skills needed. And Mightifier from Finland helps these students.

Mightifier is a positive peer communication tool with measurable impact for classrooms. It turns students into active good-doers by making them experience how great it feels to do good things to others and make others happy.

“It develops social-emotional learning, which can be seen in better self-esteem and class spirit, decreased anxiety and bullying and in the long run, better learning outcomes,” says Mervi Pänkäläinen, CEO of Mightifier.

Mightifier will represent Finland in the semi-finals of Ideas from Europe in Tallinn. With 25 others they will pitch their idea and try to convince the jury they have to be on the stage in the Knight’s Hall in The Hague in the Netherlands in April 2018.
