Towards collaborative practice 2016. Forum on social innovation and entrepreneurship PDF Print E-mail

Seminar / Conference

28 November - 2 December 2016 | Lecce, Italy

A cross-sector event providing an interactive and dynamic space enabling participants to share experiences/tools/methods, network and produce innovative ideas and projects.

The #TCP2016 Forum builds upon the outcomes of the “Towards collaborative practice 2015. European conference on youth work, social innovation and entrepreneurship”, organised in Malmö Sweden in November 2015. The conference aimed to explore the potential of youth work to support social innovation and entrepreneurship, and to advance collaborative practice.

One of the most important conclusions of the conference was that cross-sector collaborative practice was indeed the key to successful, sustainable and innovative entrepreneurial projects. The conference also reinforced our belief that the youth work sector needed more examples of social innovation and entrepreneurship practice, projects, success stories/failures, methods and tools to familiarize itself with these concepts, learn from previous experiences and improve the quality of its projects.

With this in mind, we have decided to take the next step and design the #TCP2016 Forum, an eminently dynamic and interactive event, where participants will be given the floor to give and receive information and inspiration.

The #TCP2016 Forum will be a laboratory of ideas, methods and tools where experienced people, who work in the field of entrepreneurial learning/entrepreneurship/ social innovation, will interact with participants on how to make their innovative projects sustainable.

Participants will be able to network and initiate
international cooperation projects within the youth sector and beyond.

The wider aim of the event is to build a European
network of projects, ideas and experiences of social innovation and entrepreneurship, with a particular focus on Erasmus+/Youth in Action opportunities. The forum will be an opportunity to discuss future pathways for social innovation and entrepreneurship, explore new opportunities and build a platform for cooperation on innovative projects and initiatives.

Objectives

• Create a common understanding of social entrepreneurship and social innovation, and impact creation;

• Facilitate networking and collaboration among participants;

• Offer an opportunity for sharing ideas, tools, methods, challenges and good practices;

• Provide information on Erasmus+ funding opportunities to promote project building to foster social innovation and entrepreneurship.
