The most human side of Twentytú in the #BWSV17

2nd January, 2018 / / No Comments

For the fourth consecutive year, Twentytú attended at the “Business With Social Value” congress, with the aim of collaborating with social companies that have people with disabilities in their workforce.

The event, held on December 20 at the Palacio de Congresos de Cataluña, becomes an important meeting point that allows real business opportunities between companies and special work centers or labor insertion companies. In this way, it contributes to improve the employability of the most vulnerable groups and the economic sustainability of social enterprises.

Socially responsible business opportunities

Business With Social Values” is a solidary initiative promoted by the Icaria Iniciatives Socials entity whose main goal is to facilitate contact between those companies that have strong social values, like Twentytú, and the social providers that participate in this annual date.

In addition, the day is complemented with different speeches led by local and invited social entrepreneurs. Activities, such as workshops and round tables, which aim to raise awareness of the importance of employment for the most vulnerable groups like people with functional diversity.

On this occasion, the agenda began with a workshop about innovation and sales techniques, given by Jordi Urbea, general director of Ogilvy & Mather – Barcelona, in which several especial work centers participated, and with a round table in which presented the initiative and spoke of the labor of special employment centers.

The meeting also had the participation of Lluís Soldevila, trainer and consultant in Actitudes de Alto Rendimiento, who offered and interesting speech about the self-knowledge as the engine of success, and Daniel Levine, founder and director of the trends consultant Avant-Guide Institute, who spoke about the most important trends in alternative environments.

There was also a meet and greet between buyers and social sellers during the coffee break, and the complete lunch offered by the solidarity chefs.

For Twentytú, being able to participate at Business With Social Values has been a great opportunity. It has allowed us to meet and collaborate with different social providers, and contribute our bit to the autonomy and employability of people at risk of exclusion. So next year, do not forget to attend!

Live the magic in Tibidabo Amusement Park

14th December, 2017 / / No Comments

If you want to enjoy a magical day, full of fun and with amazing views of Barcelona, ​​save a spot for the Tibidabo amusement park on your calendar. An emblematic place full of charm that will delight both kids and adults thanks to its classic attractions and the latest new features with virtual reality. Come with us and take a walk around the magic mountain!

In west Barcelona and a little over 500 metres above sea level stands the Tibidabo mountain. A place where to enjoy the best views of Barcelona and on which stands one of the most charming amusement parks in the world.

If we look back, it was not until the first decade of the 20th century that the area began to be urbanized with the construction of a tramway and a funicular, terraces, buildings and a few small leisure distractions, such as bowling, swings, telescopes and binoculars or some automatons.

That’s how the oldest amusement park in Spain was born, the third oldest in Europe and one of the oldest in the world. Tibidabo is so full of charm that even the selfsame Walt Disney confessed that it was one of the “most magical” places he had ever been to, and such was his fascination that years later he confessed that he was part of the inspiration for his theme parks.

 

A place for the nostalgic

Although Tibidabo amusement park has been renewed over the years, it hasn’t given up its romantic and classic character. Therefore, it still preserves many of their original attractions; a carrousel of a fairy tale, a mirrors maze where to get lost or the original 1915 air railroad which offers a secret surprise at the end, a century ago. In addition, you have about 30 attractions for all ages such as roller coasters, haunted castles, a Ferris wheel, a virtual reality attraction or bumper cars.

And if you are thinking about visiting Tibidabo Amusement Park during Christmas, there are several special activities prepared for the holidays such as the theatrical show of the Pepsicolen company, the 4D projection of “The Little Prince” or the party of grandparents, where grandparents and grandchildren have free admission.

If you want to enjoy other activities during these special holidays with family or friends in our city, check out our Christmas guide in Barcelona.

Solidarity and commitment to the environment

In addition to being one of the most magical places in Barcelona, ​​Tibidabo shares many values ​​with our Twentytú hostel. On the one hand, solidarity, since they offer discounts and advantages for vulnerable collectives, organise solidarity days and also have signed a collaboration agreement with UNICEF.

The park is also committed to the environment: since 2005 they have joined the Barcelona + sostenible program and have the environmental management system certificate.

The second MID Talent training program in Twentytú hostel

30th November, 2017 / / No Comments

Between the 19th  and the 25th  November, our Twentytú Hostel hosted the second edition of the MID Talent program, an initiative from the Market of Design Ideas that has allowed 20 restless young people to live a get-together week in our hostel to accelerate creative entrepreneurship of their own businesses. We tell you all about this event in which we are very proud to take part again. Talent power!

MID Talent: un encuentro para jóvenes creativos

MID Talent is a program aimed at young entrepreneurs under 30 years old and residents in Catalonia that wants to be a space where to share ideas, get training and help to create new business. The participants, all of them unemployed, are part of a generation that shares interests such as creative entrepreneurship, innovation or sustainable strategies. The key concepts discussed in this meeting have been: inspiration, eco-innovation, design thinking, prototyping, team building or crowdfunding, among others.

Mid Talent Twentytu formation

The event, promoted and organised by the BCD (Barcelona Design Center), has allowed the creatives to share for a week training and advice of many experienced professionals from the world of design, innovation, sustainability and creative entrepreneurship. The sessions, focused on teamwork and actions that allow promoting new projects, have been theoretical and practical, so the participants were able to apply the knowledge to their business ideas.

Mid Talent twentytu hostel

MID Talent is co-financed by the European Social Fund and BCD (Barcelona Design Center), the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya and of the IED (European Institute of Design).

Twentytú hostel next to the young

For the second time this year Twentytú will be the scene to create this space full of enthusiasm, entrepreneurship and great ideas. We believe in young people, therefore we’ve already supported other similar initiatives such as the design competition in collaboration with the BAU (University Design Center of Barcelona).

As it happened in the first edition of the MID Talent, which was held from 22nd to 28th October, the participants have stayed in our hostel where they have lived with the rest of the team with whom they share very similar concerns. In addition, they have been able to take part in all free activities and they also have an accident insurance to ensure their safety throughout their stay.

After taking part in MID Talent, young entrepreneurs have acquired knowledge about creative entrepreneurship methodologies and tools, in addition to improving their professional profile and, most importantly, increasing their chances of entering the labour market full of ideas and desire to start their own projects.

Finally, on Saturday, 25th November, each of the young entrepreneurs presented their proposal on the Twentytú hostel terrace and we still have not been able to decide which idea we liked best. Good luck to all the participants in their projects!

The most eco-friendly Barcelona

16th November, 2017 / / No Comments

Christmas holidays and Black Friday are just around the corner and it’s usual to think about gifts for the family and, why not, some personal cravings. For this reason, and because we know how difficult it’s to make the right decisions when it comes to shopping, we offer you a list of eco friendly shops and options that will delight while taking care of the environment. Take note and make your own wish list!

Unique decoration and furniture

If you want your home to transmit the passion that you feel for recycling and fair trade products, you can’t miss these stores to decorate with style and responsibility!

L’Estoc is a sustainable store that creates functional furniture as chairs, tables or shelves from the wood of recycled pallets. You can enjoy them on the terrace of our Hostel Twentytú!

In Dr. Unic they create unique objects which give a second life to the most unsuspected materials: they turn old faucets into hangers or oars into lamps with a lot of personality. Imagination rules!

Olokuti is an eco, bio and fair trade store where you will find a large assortment of objects and products of all kinds: home, gifts, relax, accessories, cosmetics, food… In addition, its interior hides one of the most beautiful terraces in Barcelona!

Bags, backpacks and glasses with recycled materials

You can wear the latest trends and be respectful with the environment at the same time. Enjoy original accessories while giving another opportunity to those materials that many people would consider waste.

Vaho and Nukak are two companies that use materials as surprising as advertising canvas or tires to make their bags and backpacks, which are tremendously original pieces.

In Babau, in addition to making their bags with recycled materials (such as PVC or safety belts), they propose a unique solution to find your mobile phone or the keys: a LED light inside the bag!

Sunglasses made from reused skateboards or bamboo? Yes, it’s possible with Bamboozz, the most ecological way to wear your accessories with personality and, in addition, environmental awareness.

Cosmetics and natural treatments

By pampering your body and hair with respectful products that reduce waste you’ll help take care of the planet and your body inside and out!

La tienda de Tanit offers natural cosmetics with a wide range of makeup and hair and body care products that respect your skin and also the environment!

Reducing packaging is a complicated task and requires changing consumer habits. In El safareig you’ll find cleaning and hygiene products in bulk that you can carry to home with your favorite reusable container. That’s a good start!

Bio Pelu and Hammam Hennah are two bio hairdressers that offer hair treatments with ecological and sustainable products, including masks, dyes or hairstyle products. Try them, make a gift or experience their benefits at home!

And if you’re tired of shopping and need a break, you just have to come back to Twentytú Hostel and enjoy a very eco-friendly stay in Barcelona. In this way, you will enjoy all the special features that distinguish us as a sustainable hostel and you can see our commitment to take care of the environment by yourself. This effort has provided us, recently, with the Distintivo de garantía de calidad ambiental de la Generalitat de Catalunya, which recognises those products and services that exceed environmental quality requirements beyond what is established by the current regulations. Such a great honour!

And save a space in your calendar to visit the Warhol exhibition and the mechanical art at the CaixaForum, a must to get a deeper insight on this pop art icon!

Andy Warhol and the mechanical art take over Barcelona

26th October, 2017 / / No Comments

Insolent, extravagant, controversial, irreverent and American, very American. That was Andy Warhol, and so is his exhibition that has come to Barcelona under great anticipation. “The mechanical art”, the largest exhibition in Spain dedicated to Warhol to date, gives us the chance to admire his original works after having seen thousands of reproductions. Are you ready? You have time until 31st December!

Campbell’s soup, screenprints of Marilyn Monroe in full colour, Jackie Kennedy portrayed in blue … The universal myth of pop art, Andy Warhol, died 30 years ago but his work is still alive, very alive. Where’s the secret? He created an art that everyone understood, easy to remember and that anyone can recognize as their own. Mechanical art goes over the Warhol’s early years as a designer in New York until his death, when he had already become a guru of modernity and pop art.

Andy warhol exposición Barcelona

The exhibition reaches the CaixaForum in Barcelona, ​​where 352 of his best-known works are filled with pop icons recognizable by everybody in different formats: paintings, photographic material, magazines, records, objects … It’s not a surprise because Warhol was very demanding with himself and came to have a rhythm of frenetic production of painting, photography, sculpture … even dared with the cinema and music!

Arte al alcance de todos

The exhibition, which arrived in our city on 14th  September, reminds us how Warhol’s work aims to “democratise” art through objects, characters and ideas that everybody knows. Surely you don’t have to go far to find thousands of references to his work in your environment; mugs, t-shirts, vinyl, … and reproductions of his works that probably decorate bars and living rooms of your friends, relatives or even your own!

Andy Warhol pop art

In the 1950s, when the prevailing trend was Abstract Expressionism, Warhol broke into a different way of expressing art through the cult of consumer products and celebrities as a brand. In this way, little by little, he formed an extensive work that has been exhibited in the most important museums of the world as the MoMA in New York, the Tate Gallery in London or the Pompidou in Paris, and that now are together in the CaixaForum of Barcelona, only 8 metro stops away from Twentytú.

And remember that if you like art, you can also find art on the streets of Barcelona in murals, graffiti and even a visual poem!

The same essence 34 years later

In 1983 Warhol came to inaugurate an exhibition in Madrid, although many people in Spain hardly knew its work, they let go away by the fame that preceded him and paid 100 pesetas (0.60 euros more or less), which was the cost of the entry ticket. Today, 34 years later, his work is still prevailing and the CaixaForum exhibition becomes a must see for any lover of modern art.

And if you also want to be part of Warhol’s work and be the protagonist of your own work of art, in the exhibition you can take a photo with the same effect as Marilyn and upload it on the CaixaForum Facebook profile. Who knows, maybe in a few years you’ll be on the walls of museums all over the world😉

Geocaching (or treasure hunting) in Barcelona

18th October, 2017 / / No Comments

Don’t miss the experience of geocaching in Barcelona! A treasure hunting game where you use geolocation to find hidden objects in the most unexpected places all over the world and also in Barcelona. In this post you’ll find everything you need to know to enjoy the route and solve all your doubts to become an expert.  Seek the cache!

What is geocaching?

Geocaching is a treasure hunting game where you use an app and a GPS to locate caches (hidden treasures). This practice offers many advantages: you can do it individually or in group, in urban or natural environments, it’s perfect for all ages, it doesn’t require rare equipment and in most cases it is free!

How do I find a treasure?

The difficulty of finding the cache depends on where it is hidden, its size and whether you need clues to reach it or not. The GPS does not indicate the exact point where it’s located, but rather indicates its position within a radius, so the clue lies in searching from different perspectives and in extraordinary places. To give you an idea of ​​what you are looking for, you usually will find the caches inside cans or sealed plastic containers that protect the contents of the weather. If you find it, congratulations! You can sign the paper that you will find inside, mark your achievement in the application and even, if you find an object inside, you can exchange it for another that you brought with you.

Geocaching-Barcelona

What happens if I don’t find it?

If you don’t find it, no big deal! You can always find another nearby or try it again some other time. It’s important that you don’t forget to indicate it in the app, so that you leave a record in your personal account and, in the event that other users don’t find it, you will alert them of a problem with the cache.

What do I need to start the adventure?

There are some essential elements that you must have during the hunt, and although they don’t guarantee a win, they help a lot!

• A mobile phone, tablet or portable GPS with internet connection that allows you to geolocalise the hiding spots. Also if it has an integrated camera you can even immortalize all the process.

• A Geocaching app, you can find it in the markets of Android or iOS and download it for free.

• A pencil or a pen with which you’ll sign the cache guest book.

• Water and snacks to boost your energy during the walk.

• A small object. This is optional and will depend on the cache you have found, some containers hold badges, plates, small figures, etc. If you want to keep them as souvenir, you must exchange them for another object of equal or greater value.

Treasure hunting Barcelona

Will I find caches in Barcelona?

Geocaching is a fun and didactic activity that allows you to discover every corner of the cities in a totally different way. If you stay in our Twentytú Hostel and you wonder if you will find caches near us, here’s the answer: yes, there are more than 200 treasures hidden throughout Barcelona!
