Hosting Social Innovation Project

Active citizens want to live their ideas, visions and also want to state their opinions. The project „Hosting Social Innovation“ will help us to transform in such a society with active citizens. It will empower people to take care of their social and ecological environment more actively.

Goals: The aim oft he project is to show the importance of social and economical innovation and to provide specific tools, which will help the participants to implement their ideas and visions. The outcome during the workshops will not only be used by the participants, but also saved in an online data base, so there is a broader way to reach visionaries.

Partnership: Four organizations from four different European countries will be part of this alliance. All of them have experience in projects on the local and international level. This specific combination of organizations from different sectors allows the project to offer knowledge in all kind of areas such as knowledge transfer, education, craft and art. This link between those different areas and also a lot of work experience of the hosts are a good basement for creativity and transformation.
