What is The Mosaic Bus?

The Mosaic Bus is a social impact adventure based in Europe. We transform a double-decker bus into a mobile action platform and makerspace. We support people who believe in solving the challenges in the digital age through learning.​​​​

1
We think, working on a bus and taking a break from everyday makes this project unusual.
2
Evolving the underlying business model in cooperation with our explorers and develop the route based on the opportunities and people we encounter makes it both experimental and exciting.
3
Offering a place to meet like-minded people, learn and create throughout Europe we find super exciting.

Why are we doing this?

​We all live in an environment which is rapidly changing around us. New technologies transform the way we live, work and interact. Learning new skillsets and adjusting our mindset is required to be prepared for upcoming challenges, to feel comfortable in taking social responsibility and act.​

What is a social impact adventure?

As a social impact adventure, we create impact through unusual, exciting and experimental experiences. This is what enables us to work purpose-driven, result-oriented and community-focused.

What do we offer?

Action Platform
We offer a platform and network for knowledge-exchange, discussions and explorative learning through workshops and meetups. Use our work environment and tools as a makerspace to develop your ideas further.
Impact Projects
In projects with local and European partners, we work on a challenge to solve or question to answer, regarding a deficiency or problem in our learning environment at schools, universities or jobs using technology and new learning methods.
Projects are how we generate social impact.
In projects we work on a challenge to solve or question to answer, regarding a deficiency or problem in our learning environment at school, university or work. This can be the introduction of new learning methods, social experiments or the ideation of ways to apply technology to improve processes and work/life conditions.

The project team and partners provide the environment for the local community to participate through workshops, meetup discussions and focused work sessions. The Mosaic Bus provides the workspace, materials and network for a high-quality outcome. Each project finishes with an action plan. The outcome will be published and open source.
Our target group could be students, children, parents, teachers, developers, businessmen, politicians, artists, designers, writers, scientists.

But we’d rather think of personalities rather than roles.

We engage with people who believe in positive change and take social responsibility. We collaborate with change-makers, problem-solvers and digital thinkers. We share a passion for life-long learning, technology, exploration and curiosity. We work with believers and pioneers for more effective and natural ways of learning. We invite everyone who thinks that learning happens in every stage of life, no matter what age, background or job.

The story behind the project.

I'm Sascha, a 25-year old student and digital nomad. Four years ago I got the opportunity to live on a house bus with a Kiwi family in New Zealand. Since then I took on more adventures and followed the urge to explore how other people live and work. While I listened curiously to what my travel companions experienced, I felt an transformative power for life and personal changes and infinite possibilities.

Founding the The Mosaic Bus to me means beginning my own adventure and make it an open cooperative. It's about meeting fascinating people and creating a community where everyone dares to challenge the status quo. It's about making unique experiences while spending some time on the bus for everyone who is interested. Having a place to connect to people in a whole different setting and create lasting friendships and beneficial partnerships of all kinds.

A community where we inspire and motivate each other. Where we find the courage to do what we love. Where we spark new ideas and make "earn a living and living fulfilled" the same thing.

The Mosaic Bus is an experiment and adventure with an open end. Consider this your personal invitation to be part of this project: follow, share and engage with us!
