Event description
Now, more than ever, we want to reimagine the world we live in. Let's start with open dialogue about social innovation around the world.

About this event

The current Covid-19 crisis has been an unprecented time for the entire world. It has made us question our working practices, health, priorities. For many people it has been a time of difficulty, loss and and fear. It has exposed major inequalities around the world, some of those in the poorest regions have suffered greatly as a result. It has also taught us that it is possible to slow down, rapidly adapt and pivot, and it has given our environment and planet a much needed breath of fresh air.

As we emerge from mandatory lockdown periods in many countries, and with major healthcare, education, economic, environmental and social issues to address; we want to have a dialogue about how we seize this opportunity, and how others may have already begun to adapt or innovate within their new normal. Others may want to share experiences of difficulty and struggle.

Join us to hear experiences from speakers from our Latin American Social Innovation Network (LASIN), South East Asian Social Innovation Network (SEASIN), and our Social Innovation through Knowledge Exchange Project (SIKE). All three projects are co-funded by the European Commission. LASIN and SEASIN are Capacity Building in Higher Education Projects, and SIKE is a Knowledge Alliance; all three under the Erasmus Plus programme.

During this workshop, some key questions will be considered, including:

  • What has changed about the way we work?
  • How has our work been challenged by the current Covid-19 crisis?
  • What do we want to keep about our new ways of working?
  • In these challenging times, how do we keep our collective social imagination positive in outlook?
  • How can we collaborate together to make a better world on the other side of the crisis?

We invite you to take part in this online debate, with speakers from three international partners in our network.

Speakers include:

Javi Finez, Business Innovation Brokers

Shariha Khalid, Mission & Co

Stephen Paterson, National University of Management, Phnom Penh

Carla Cipolla, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro & DESIS Network
