Emerging social issues and challenges within social innovation are requiring new responses as institutions are finding increasingly difficult to provide solutions based on traditional methods. Atlantic Social Lab aims to develop and promote social innovation approaches and methods to give response to key growing social issues of the Atlantic Area, both within citizens, third sector and social enterprises as well as the public sector.
The partnership will implement and test small probing interventions to finally scale them up in the following areas: i) social innovation and welfare services, ii) social innovation and active public engagement, iii) green inclusive economy and iv) social economy and social responsibility in the private sector.
This project also intends to implement new methods of further citizen engagements (i.e. participative budgeting or open decision making systems) to recognise the importance of the active involvement of citizens to the successful development of the Atlantic regions.
Insights and results will nourish the creation of the Atlantic Social Innovation Action Plan that will provide transferrable solutions to other Atlantic Areas.
