2016 has been a challenging year across Europe and around the world, but the inspiring social innovation we’ve seen has kept us feeling hopeful for the future. And we’re excited to see what 2017 has got in store for the sector!
Last year’s European Social Innovation Competition saw over 1,000 applications from 36 countries, seeking solutions for the integration of refugees and migrants. And in October we awarded three brilliant winners with a prize of €50,000 each, showcasing true innovation for integrated futures – check them out here.
The 2017 Competition will be launching on 28 February in Athens, Greece, and we would love for you to join us! We’ll have inspiring agenda lined up with some of Europe’s brightest social innovators and entrepreneurs doing great things in Greece. Places will be limited so to make sure you get your ticket early – be the first to register here.
For more information about the launch event, as well as the exciting new theme of the 2017 Competition, make sure you look out for our next newsletter and follow us onTwitter.
Finally, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the last year and to wish you a Happy New Year!
