Social Innovation Community (SIC) Final event

“Beyond Imagination: A socially innovative Europe”

Europe has changed drastically in the last 10 years – socially, politically, economically and demographically. Social innovation has sparked millions of creative solutions towards complex social challenges, including in the public sector, private sector, universities, and community.

Over three years, Social Innovation Community (SIC) project has been promoting different action-research activities around Europe with the aim of building the network of networks on social innovation.

Now, SIC project is coming to its end. In the finale, we will celebrate what we have achieved in the past decade, understand how purposeful cross-sectoral collaboration can happen and imagine the way ahead for social innovation. Thus, the final event of Social Innovation Community (SIC) is themed “Beyond Imagination: A socially innovative Europe”. This event will mark the end of the three-year project.

Beyond Imagination: A socially innovative Europe will concentrate on inclusive funding structures, empowerment for change, innovative public services and many more topics, including thematic workshops, talks and exhibitions. In addition, the SIC Social Innovation Declaration will be launched, and participants will explore how we should learn, invest and collaborate for a socially innovative Europe.

Beyond Imagination: A socially innovative Europe will explore key areas including:

  1. What does it take to design the future we want?
  2. How can we use more experimentation and participatory learning approaches?
  3. What is the role of research and technology in Social Innovation?
  4. How the #SIDeclarationcan influence future policy?
  5. How do we need to connect and work differently as a society in order to tackle the challenges ahead?

The event is taking place on the 12-13th November 2018 in Seville, Spain. Registration is free and open to all public sector, private sector, universities, and community.
