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!
