It hasn't been a long time since the Japanese made a statement by creating cubicle hotels. What seemed a little bizarre at that point in time seems to be a part of reality today, even for housing. Today, expensive and overcrowded cities around the world are coming to terms and making the obvious choice on keeping up with the growing costs. Tiny they may be but many find it worth it having ones own space than none at all.

Travelling with your mom is much more challenging than with your friends or partners. Due to the “reversed power”, the one who is usually taking care of others becomes the one being taken care of. You will take the responsibility of not only planning the trip and looking after your mom, but also facing the actual generational gap that is sometimes buried under the separate daily routines. The conflicts may rise 10 times more during the trip than in normal life, are you ready for that?
Thanks to Usman Iftikhar, a young Pakistani engineer living in Australia, more than 100 refugees have started 30 businesses and created hundreds of jobs. Usman joined forces with his colleague Jacob Muller and founded a social venture company, Catalysr, that helps migrants and refugees establish startups in different areas. Our work is truly ‘catalytic’ and the biggest reward for us is to see the difference between the people who join our program compared to the fantastic migrapreneurs who graduate – says Iftikhar. Last year, Usman was awarded a top Commonwealth honor in London for outstanding contributions to the community. This recognition came as a welcome boost to his long-term goal, which is to create 10.000 jobs in the next 10 years!
