“Rethinking social good and social innovation”
Changes and Changes will be one of the organizations participating in the Empatheast forum in Bulgaria from 11-13 November
In this meeting in Vratsa, one of the poorest regions of Bulgaria, we will be embarking on a journey where we make new models of relationships between individuals, groups and communities.
Social innovations are not a solution to all problems, they are not enough per se, but they represent a way for mass mobilization of group intellect in the name of new solutions that will allow more people on the planet, in our country and our region, to live with dignity and to their full potential.
It is vital that we become more efficient at using our common resources. Only with innovative solutions by and with communities can we reduce the costs for non-effective and expensive social solutions, perpetually repeated by local and central government despite their proven ineffectiveness. So we need to change the way these solutions are designed and move towards developing solutions bottom-up, as they are more stable, honest, adequate and inclusive.
