European boosts and Swedish breaks on social innovation?
EVENT | 22 MARCH
While EU has prioritised social innovation through several policy, Sweden seems to be lagging behind in strategic policy efforts.
In this session, key actors in Sweden and the EU discuss the challenges and potential in better supporting the multitude of social innovators and entrepreneurs, who keep on striving to achieve the global sustainability goals of the 2030 Agenda.
The Future-making Academy at Malmö University is a new initiative where we invite you to a reading circle with a focus on complexity, future-making, and collaboration. The purpose is to make research available, deepen and provide space to examine and discuss how thoughts and ideas from the texts we read can resonate with our own practices.
What is social innovation?
Social innovation and social entrepreneurship are initiatives aimed to improve what is missing or not working in the social structure: new solutions, methods and ideas that create a sustainable society – economically, socially and ecologically.
