Cycle on Social Entrepreneurship

Social entrepreneurship and social innovation are at the heart of Dialogue Café Association mission. The recommendations received during the sessions organised in 2015 on women´s empowerment through creative industries and creative hubs and entrepreneurship for social change, and in 2016 on incubation  models for social and creative entrepreneurship: sharing knowledge and testimonials, gave us the opportunity to identify follow-up activities on social entrepreneurship.

In this framework a cycle of sessions on social entrepreneurship will be launched in 2017 with the aim of promoting global exchanges and networking opportunities as well as strengthening youth capacities and skills on social entrepreneurship. The cycle will address, once per month, a topic and challenge previously identified by the community and partners of Dialogue Café Network.

Session´s Overview

From ideas to implementation, social innovation initiatives are explicitly designed to meet a recognised social need, drive societal change by providing effective (than existing) solutions and empower beneficiaries by creating new roles, developing new communities, strengthening competences and focusing on their knowledge and capacities.

The application of social innovation strategies in the area of ageing is an interesting approach to tackle the challenges and opportunities of this 21st century main societal issue.

The objective of this session organised by Dialogue Café is in one hand, disseminate social innovation initiatives aimed at empowering elderly implemented in several and different countries; in other hand, provide to social entrepreneurs thinking on working in this field, inspiration and knowledge about good practices.

With this purpose, members of social innovation organisations working in the field of active-ageing and social entrepreneurs will be invited to join us and participate in this discussion.
