Social Innovation in Europe, Collaboration & slash/slash!


A new trend has been emerging over the past few years. It's no longer just about innovation. Nor is it just about being social. Today, the buzz words are collaboration, co-operation and slash-slash! (we'll explain later!). What is emerging is greater than the sum of its parts. It has far reaching consequences. It is more than just a myriad of ideas. Where social innovation kicks off, mash-ups, networks/combining methodologies, wikis, community-driven content/co-action and co-operative economic and transitioning systems take over. Co-created initiatives and solutions triggered by gatherings of small/large groups of individuals, networks/ communities, organizations and movements are moving us towards new models of change.

Are you part of this? Do you want to be?

This lunchtime gathering for innovators from around Europe will bring together those interested in the field of social innovation, technology and collaborative communities to discuss the meaning, ideas and initiatives that are the driving force for social and collaborative change.

What on earth is slash-slash? Slash-slash (as described by John Grant in the book Co-Opportunity) describes your work e.g. I'm a designer/blogger/social venture you describe yourself this way? If you do, this gathering is probably for you!
