Social Innovation Camp

14/11 Zenit, hus Culmen

kl 16:00-19:00

Social Innovation Camp is about finding innovative solutions to societal challenges. This concept combines entrepreneurship and creation of societal benefits.

All participants are gathered in a common workshop. The workshop is based on the Design Thinking method, stemming from the client and user as co-creators of the solution. A dynamic is formed as participants are activated in a common entrepreneurial process. When points of contact are created between actors, the conditions to develop workable ideas get generated.

Everyone can participate in this workshop, no prior knowledge is needed. The workshop is held in english to include all students. Do not hesitate to participate if you are worried about your english, we will help each other!

Dinner is offered to all participants.

Socialt entreprenörskap

15/11 Zoom

kl 08:30-10:00

Vad är egentligen ett socialt företag och vad skiljer det från ett traditionellt företag? Entreprenörskap kommer i många olika former och sociala företag baserar sin affärsverksamhet på en eller flera samhällsutmaningar för att skapa samhällsnyttiga affärer. Hur det går till och vilka olika slags sociala företag som finns berättar Coompanion mer om under Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Detta är en digital föreläsning och kommer att hållas på svenska. Länk skickas ut via mail.

Creating cross-sectoral dialogue for a sustainable society

15/11 Cyan, hus Culmen
kl 16:00-18:00

As societal challenges are brought to light in a more and more urgent fashion, many of us citizens want to get involved and act towards a more sustainable society, somehow. Dialogue and cooperations between all forms of actors in society (individuals, civil society organisations, academics, companies and more) appear necessary to create an effective lasting impact. But how can we actually contribute to this cross-sectoral dialogue?

This is the theme tackled in this workshop, supported by an inspiring method and fueled by participants’ own questions and creativity.

Workshop led by Akatingo International and Drivhuset.

Everyone can participate in this workshop, no prior knowledge is needed. The workshop is held in english to include all students. Do not hesitate to participate if you are worried about your english, we will help each other!
