Villa Atelier “B&B with a cause” is one of the first projects of the Atelier Impact Hub. Our mission harnessess our entrepreneurial spirit with the belief that one day all business should be social business.
We believe in people and support social change through four pillars:
We are drawing from indigenous Bosnian wisdom, music, and art, and we leverage the local media to raise awareness and support people and the Planet.
Practically speaking, we employ and train locals with aligned values, take care to be diverse in our hiring of services, are conscious about our own impact on the environment, and follow the latest global “impact business” practices.
Standing on the shoulders of social impact innovators, like the Bellagio Center in Italy, we too aspire to grow into a social venture that supports individuals and organizations committed to improving the lives of the marginalized. We will do this through providing the infrastructure, context and programming to convene hands-on experts, influencers, local communities and other key stakeholders to design new approaches for positive change. We believe in direct action, connection, lobbying, common purpose, and influence. We believe in creating power systems that allow people now outside the power system to engage and build a nation where everyone matters. We believe in creating social movements outside of politics. We believe we must respect and honor the Earth.
