The local level allows to define a specific social welfare system. The various actors involved (politicians, professionals, organizations or civil society) along with the dynamics and the institutional inertia, are capital for explaining and thus determining its own development.
Given the current crisis, it is now more important than ever to rethink how social needs are addressed. The project WILCO organizes the seminar “Innovating in times of crisis” and invites all people and institutions involved in social welfare. The seminar aims to be a meeting point for reflecting on the challenges of social innovation and, simultaneously, to find a place to know some of the innovative projects being undertaken in other cities Europe.
The event is open to the public although it is specifically aimed at politicians, experts, professionals, volunteers, researchers, and students. Registration to the event is no longer possible due to completion of all the available spaces.
