We recently visited Uganda and Tanzania, where we had a chance to talk with local students and young professionals about their countries' sustainability issues.

Rosa-Maria Alaraasakka and Tuomas Hätälä are the founders of Opack, a startup that aims to revolutionize the reusable food packaging industry. The company is based on an idea born on Startup Experience and it almost died during Covid, but was born again thanks to an unexpected savior — the EU.
We sit too much. It is a cliché, but that doesn’t make it less accurate — or any easier to change. Exercise is often considered something to do in our already sparse free time. AVP teachers Lidia and Anna learned about energy training at Studio Tirelli in Milan and now share some tips to incorporate more exercise in your daily life.
We just celebrated a transition into the new year. After a critical assessment of our lives in 2022, we — most likely — concluded that we didn’t do enough. In this post, Good Life Engine teacher Lidia shares a few tips on how to make better New Year's resolutions and break the loop of broken promises.

The challenge was creating solutions to help European countries become independent of Russian energy by either saving energy or producing more locally.
Throughout the years Lidia has taught Good Life Engine, the main challenge has always been the “wanna-be-efficient brain” that doesn’t leave the students at peace with how they spend their time. Many of us feel time pressure from squeezing too many things into our life. At Good Life Engine, we hope you will learn how to enjoy life rather than execute it.
