The objective of this series of reports is to study the interplay of innovations with local welfare systems, to identify critical factors and think about appropriate ways of up-scaling innovations.
Social innovations in the city range from child and eldercare, an association for immigrants of Russian, Ukrainian and Belarus descent, to addressing the lack of houses in adequate condition at an affordable price in the old centre of town and employment.
The poster representing “Murals for Social Change” was exhibitied during the WILCO closing event to showcase social innovation in Plock. See the full poster here: Murals Plock
A total of 20 European cities have been studied in depth within the WILCO framework. This report series represents the first attempt at understanding how the cities have developed over the last decades and how changes have contributed to the current landscape in the areas of housing, employment, family and immigration.
