Social innovation in Europe is a big field, and it's still growing. We aim to bring you the latest interesting insights, news, interviews, events and organizations from the Social Innovation Europe community- big themes and small tidbits- in a digest that is easy to…digest.
This week's digest will focus on Poland. With the EU Presidency in Poland, the country is buzzing with Innovation Summits, Social Economy Meetings and events on Digital Inclusion. Organizations like the UNDP Poland, The Shipyard, and the Foundation for Social and Economic Initiaitves are working hard to bring innovative social initiatives to life. Social innovators in Poland have a unique chance to draw new social connections on a largely blank slate. What innovative relationships will emerge over the coming years, and how can Europe benefit from Poland's social experimentation.
