Grass­roots Radio at the The road ahead for dig­i­tal social inno­va­tion — Brus­sels, 26th April 2019

Grass­roots Radio is excit­ed to join the high-lev­el pol­i­cy work­shop The road ahead for dig­i­tal social inno­va­tion: How can the EU sup­port tech as a force for empow­er­ment and social impact?, which will take place in Brus­sels on April 26, 2019. The work­shop is orga­nized by the glob­al inno­va­tion foun­da­tion Nes­ta, as part of the dig­i­tal social inno­va­tion (DSI4EU) project.

The work­shop – which will involve sev­er­al  Col­lec­tive Aware­ness Plat­forms for Sus­tain­abil­i­ty & Social Inno­va­tion (CAPSSI) projects like Grass­roots Radio – will explore how the Euro­pean insti­tu­tions can sup­port Dig­i­tal Social Inno­va­tion (DSI) and cre­ate a future where tech­nol­o­gy empow­ers cit­i­zens to tack­le our biggest social and envi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges.

The event will bring togeth­er senior offi­cials from the EU admin­is­tra­tion, foun­da­tions, think tanks, civ­il soci­ety and DSI prac­ti­tion­ers to:

  • show­case the poten­tial of DSI in pri­or­i­ty areas for the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion, and share suc­cess sto­ries from across the EU;
  • dis­cuss and refine ideas for future pol­i­cy agen­das in the Euro­pean insti­tu­tions to sup­port DSI, through mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary con­ver­sa­tions on dif­fer­ent areas of com­pe­tence;
  • under­stand bet­ter how we can bring the “dig­i­tal” into social inno­va­tion prac­tice and pol­i­cy, and use DSI to help shape more respon­si­ble tech­nol­o­gy;
  • pro­vide an oppor­tu­ni­ty for net­work­ing, knowl­edge shar­ing and new con­nec­tions.

The work­shop will be a com­bi­na­tion of pre­sen­ta­tions, inter­ac­tive ses­sions net­work­ing. Look­ing for­ward to it!
