Under the project Hosting Social Innovation we developed a free online workbook in English for those who work on their ability to be social innovation hosts. Soon many other language versions will be available.
We encourage you to use our freshly developed Innovation Methods Database. It is a collection of easly researchable methods that can be used by facilitators and innvation hosts to work with groups as well as individuals. The database is a result of our common effort with other partner organisations of the Hosting Social Innovation project, funded by Erasmus+.
The recruitment is open till the end of August 2016 (early bird till the end of June only).
We live at a time during which people feel a growing need to go out and make change, instead of staying at home and looking at the world from the outside. To support these active citizens, we urgently need people who host, facilitate, moderate, support, inspire, guide and empower others during critical innovation phases or visionary development processes.
Within the Erasmus+ Project „Hosting Social Innovation“ we are launching a pilot program that will bolster those important hosting competencies.
The new thematic issue of Sustainable Development Applications journal focuses on the importance of water in the city.
The new guidebook presents the actual solutions (strategic, technical, financial and system ones), which focus on the strong dependence between water and greenery in the city, and shows the necessity to integrate the urban greenery management with water management.
The aim of the Count on green project is to implement innovative methods for managing nature in three Polish cities (Krakow, Lodz, Poznan) based on cross-sector cooperation and involvement of residents.
The objective of this special issue has been to bring together the various perspectives on the value of urban ecosystem services and discuss the potential of merging and synthesizing these perspectives. Ultimately, this should lay foundations for a more sustainable management of ecosystem services in urban areas.
This book is at once a guide for sustainable development professionals and a handbook for those interested in further studies on sustainability. It not only explains and exemplifies the issues of sustainability discussed herein, but it also offers a resource for practitioners in business, local authorities, non-governmental organisations and indeed individuals, wanting to undertake activities directed towards sustainable development.
