Social (innovation) safari 2012

The last couple of months I’ve been working on the social safari. And it will finally start and I’m really exited, because besides organising I will join as a participant myself. It is a one-week program (1-6 July 2012) in which international participants from diverse backgrounds work together on complex social issues. A concept of Kennisland and this year de Baak joins forces to make it even better.

The safari emerged out of the thought that solutions to complex issues are best solved by teams as diverse as possible. For one week we create the perfect social innovation think tank to help solving complex social issues of corporations in Amsterdam. Imagine having the thinking power of designers, consultants, social workers, entrepreneurs: all together

By this trailer you can get a good impression of the safari. Later on I’ll post some of my experiences. On Friday the 6th of july there will be a big party where we’ll present the results of this stunning week. This is open for everyone to join. Check out the facebook group.
