Social Innovation Decoded Workshops

Do you want to learn more about social innovation? What it is and how you can use it to improve what you do and how you do it? NICVA are running 7 Social Innovation Decoded workshops throughout Northern Ireland in the last quarter of 2016

The term ‘Social Innovation’ can be alienating to many people and with these workshops NICVA will hope to decode, demystify and de-jargon. Attendees will learn more about the social innovation concept and how it’s really something anyone can try.

There will also be an opportunity to try out Design Thinking, one of the key methods involved in social innovation, so you can see for yourself whether it can help you find new solutions to whatever societal challenges you’re working towards. ‘Design thinking’ is a creative approach to problem solving that starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor made to suit their needs.

We will also tell you about some new opportunities to go deeper and access development support in social innovation.

The dates, venues and booking page for the 7 half day workshops are listed below:
