Why a Social Innovation Forum?

We find ourselves in an increasingly challenging, complex and interdependent economic, social and environmental context. And because of that, it has become more difficult and, you could say, even a little dangerous, to separate the business area from the company's social area - especially when there is a greater need than ever for new opportunities, new forms of think. We need to go beyond the current debates on charity and sustainability and look for new ways to promote respect, collaboration and co-creation between social and business actors in the sector, so that we can, together, find sustainable solutions to our challenges. The social sector is known for its creative use of limited resources, positive social and environmental impact, and ability to engage its employees and volunteers to give their best; The business sector, on the other hand, has an entrepreneurial perspective and a series of tools and practices that can promote financial sustainability and scalability. The world needs leaders who can counterbalance these all too often disconnected worlds and leverage their joint potential — leaders who understand how social can really mean business, and how business can be social.
