Social Innovation Seminar - Belfast (Fully Booked)

Primary tabs

20 October 2017 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm

The term ‘Social Innovation’ can be alienating to many people and with these workshops NICVA will hope to demystify the concept showing participants how social innovation is really something anyone can try. You will hear from participants on the first year of the programme, many of whom accessed seed funding to bring their idea and concept to the next stage.

There will also be an opportunity to try out one of the key methods involved in social innovation – Design Thinking –  so groups and organisations can see for themselves whether it can help them find new solutions to whatever societal challenges they are passionate about. ‘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 foresee this as the first step on the Social Innovation NI journey with groups and organisations going on to participate in our other Support Projects, but we believe it is equally as worthwhile for those who are just hoping to learn more about Social Innovation, and take those lessons into their own work.

**Please note this is a change of time and venue for this event than originally scheduled as it is part of FuSIon Fest Social Innovation Festival**
