Social Innovation Relay 1. Transformative Impact

Join us this November for an innovative Learning Relay designed to boost the transformative impact of your initiative and network!

How many times have you left a conference or workshop, thinking it’s a pity not to be able to connect more deeply and share experiences and knowledge with the people you met?

We invite you to something new: an experimental set up in which we combine a face-to-face thematic workshop, followed by an online learning relay. During the relay participants will activate each other’s knowledge and networks to crowdsource input for each other’s challenges.

This November our first Social Innovation Community (SIC) Relay kicks off with a full day workshop on the topic of Transformative Impact.

The ability to understand, report and communicate about impact is an increasingly relevant yet often underdeveloped competency. The workshop & relay will address this learning need, and focus on how social innovators can increase their transformative impact: the ability to challenge, alter or replace dominant ways of thinking, doing and organising.


Format & Programme 

The relay will start with a brief online introduction webinar, followed by a full-day workshop on the 15th of November. The workshop will combine informative and inspiring lectures on transformative impact with work sessions in which you will practice with a number of tools. During the workshop, you will get to know the other participants, deepen your learning question and form smaller groups before embarking on the learning relay. The relay period consists of 4 rounds of one week, in which each group provides input to the learning question of one of the participants in their group. At the end of the relay period, each person has given help to all her/ his group mates.




If you would like to take part in the relay, we kindly request you to apply via the online application form. You will be asked to provide a learning question that you want to bring in during the relay and motivate why you want to join. We will make a selection of (max 25) participants based on these applications. Application deadline: Nov 1st 2017
