Repair Café and panel discussion on combat aircraft

Dear platformers, dear partners, interested parties

We would be happy to send you some reading material from the platform - because we’ve done a lot!

But first we would like to remind you: get ready the lamp that has stopped working, the chair that wobbles or the pants that have always been too long. Soon there will be another opportunity to repair or adjust all of these things: in the second Repair-Café Haslital. We look forward to numerous visitors and would like it if you could do some word-of-mouth for us! Many Thanks!

Note: This year, due to the Corona situation, we are repairing with a lot of space and air in the tram hall instead of - as last time - in the platform.

"More work-life balance in the future"
That was exactly what it was Title of an article about the Haslital platform in the Jungfrau Zeitung. In it, the journalist Nora Devenish showed that modern work infrastructures are attractive and important for locals and contribute positively to regional development. As the article describes, contemporary work opportunities such as those offered by co-working spaces are also an argument for newcomers to choose the Haslital.

Premiere: panel discussion on the draft of a vote on combat aircraft
Not voted yet? Not sure what yours when submitting "Federal resolution on the procurement of new combat aircraft" should throw in the urn and what does a yes or no mean for the Oberhasli? Then it's worth it to watch the panel debate on this very issue online. The platform has organized an event of this kind for the first time, the Jungfrau Zeitung recorded and moderated. Finally, on September 11th, around 30 interested people gathered in the auditorium of the Kapellen school building in Meiringen to follow the - partly emotional - votes of the panelists. It was important to the operating group as a platform to meet the requirements of a platform. In other words: Both the pro and the contra side should be taken into account and have their say. In our opinion, the premiere was a success and for those who prefer to read rather than watch, there is one for them here the discussion is summarized in one article.

Cooperative meeting #1 successfully carried out
And finally this: Due to the corona, the Haslital platform held its first general meeting of members of the cooperative on September 10, 2020 with a little delay. If you would like to see the annual report, you can send us a short message to info@plattformhaslital.ch or we will shortly be able to download it from our website.

Suffice it to say: We'll keep going:)

Kind regards, the platform company group

Platformers Profiles - please fill in!

Around ten people now work regularly on the platform, and there are also individual guests who stop by irregularly or spontaneously. The platform is a coworking space, but we also hope that the people who are on site can exchange ideas, discuss and, whenever possible, inspire and support each other. To make it easier to get to know each other and exchange ideas, we have created a nice poster wall in the A5. Some profiles are already hanging and we ask the other platters to fill out their profile, take a photo and pin the whole thing on the wall. Thank you so much!

All those who do not regularly come to the platform are of course also invited to take a closer look at the platformers, or at least their profiles. The A5 is open to everyone - including coffee!

New guest in the platform shop window: Natirli!

Many of you have certainly already seen them in the platform shop window: the colorful posters with various portraits and the inscription "Natirli". They stand for the new campaign of location marketing & regional development Region Haslital Brienz. The aim of the campaign is to encourage people in the Hasli and beyond to shop locally, to remind them of the economic performance that companies bring to the region and how many jobs the shops and companies create for the local population. If you like, you can fill out the competition salon and win a voucher worth CHF 500. The “Natirli” campaign is also open Facebook.

Listening tip: Talk to the Alpine researcher Werner Bätzing about the opportunities in the country

Rural life is an endangered way of life, says at least the well-known and now emeritus professor of cultural geography, Werner Bätzing, in an interview with SRF 2. With creativity and political will, however, a U-turn is possible for the rural regions, Bätzing finds and presents key ideas for an upgrade of country life. The platform listening tip for August.

Haslital platform now on social media
After around a year of operation, we have now set up two social media channels at the Haslital platform.

We are of course happy to receive likes, comments and suggestions from our community!

Update Covid-19 and platform

We are celebrating a birthday!

Dear platformers, dear partners, interested parties

In fact, the Haslital platform is already one year old. It has been since the end of March 2019 opened and has been used briskly ever since. Cooperation-meeting point-innovation - the platform was launched under these keywords. Daniel Studer, member of the founding team and president of the cooperative, looks back with satisfaction on the first year, even though there is currently no real birthday party due to the corona pandemic. "We celebrate and are happy in silence," grins Dani. "And of course we're still very proud, we've already managed the first year with the platform."

Coworking works best
The strongest and most active mainstay of the platform was the coworking space in this first year. "We are satisfied with the development here," says Dani. «We have now issued annual subscriptions for ten working people. It is a good mix of self-employed and employees from start-ups, experienced companies and public administration. » Other people use the platform irregularly as a flexible workplace and Dani is confident that a few more platformers will be added. Foreigners who go on vacation in the Haslital also occasionally work on the platform. An ideal combination of work and leisure.

First public events held
The other two pillars, meeting point and innovation, are already having an impact. For example, there is one Exchange boutique in the platform, external people use the meeting and seminar rooms and have been with partners smaller projects initiated. The first events also took place, such as the street festival “up in the village” or the successful one 1. Repair café in the Haslital. The company group, which now consists of seven people, always comes up with good ideas on how these elements could be expanded in the platform, but sometimes not everything can be realized due to time constraints. But the goal is still to increase in the areas of meeting point and innovation.

Postponed cooperative meeting
Like so much these days, the meeting of the platform cooperatives is currently not possible. However, we will be happy to inform you about the further procedure if it is somewhat clearer how things will go in the coming weeks due to the Corona crisis.

Working on the platform and Covid-19
It is important to us to support the fight against Covid-19 and to comply with the requirements of the Federal Council. We therefore ask active platformers to work from home whenever possible. In addition, the number of people present is limited to a maximum of five people. Subscriptions or day passes are no longer issued for the time being. The platform is closed to the public until further notice.

As a test, additional study on the 1st floor
Also, but not only because of Corona, we rented an additional study of around 10 m2 on the first floor of the platform. This way, those who are still working on the platform can distribute themselves better. The room is also suitable for platformers who want to make calls or work in a very concentrated manner. You can also reserve this room accordingly in the Google Calendar.

2. Repair Café postponed from early May 2020
Patching instead of throwing away is the motto of the repair café. The café should have taken place for the second time on May 2nd, after the offer had been very well received last autumn. Due to the Corona crisis, the repair café is now postponed to autumn. We are happy if you collect numerous items that have to be repaired by then and then bring them over to the platform!

Do you want to get involved?
The platform is still looking for a company group member for the maintenance department. If you are interested and have some technical skills, sign up info@ platformhaslital.ch.
