A LSG is a non-formal workshop where youngsters have the chance to understand more about Social Innovation (SI) and Social Entrepreneurship. They can be inspired by others’ stories, gain new competences, share their ideas and suggest their solutions to jointly identified social needs.
During this 5-days long meeting the youth workers from participant organizations discussed and agreed on a common working framework to realize in the respective countries the coming Local Support Groups. The key terms of social innovation, as well as the working methodology, were collectively defined.
This was an occasion for the innovation managers to inspire each others. For consultants, experts and project managers to be personally involved in project development process is really valuable and necessary in terms of networking opportunities and experiences exchanging. In London we brought the right people together, and serendipity and personal initiative took care of the rest.
Partner organizations signed the Partnership Agreement, appointed the Steering and Quality Committees, and approved the Handbook for Project Management and Implementation.
