Cultural Social Innovation Europe

About the Project

CSI EU will empower adults and young people most affected by COVID to become confident cultural social innovators and design innovative (digital) solutions to challenges posed by the crisis. To do so, we will modernise youth and adult education curricula and practice.


Project Description

The objectives of the project are to:

1) Increase awareness & commitment to CSI at all levels in the adult education and youth sector by evidencing its contribution to empowerment, integration and competence development.

2) Strengthen the capacity of adult/youth orgs to teach CSI by improving the knowledge and digital skills of adult/youth educators and providing practical resources to teach CSI in nonformal scenarios.

3) Maximize the number of adults and young people learning and carrying out CSI projects by sharing our model via a CSI hackathon.

The first tangible results of the project will be the intellectual outputs:

IO1: CULTURAL SOCIAL INNOVATION GUIDE  will map the various best practice examples of cultural social innovation, as well as the approaches, methods and tools used to carry out these projects. The Guide will raise awareness and commitment to introducing CSI into the education of adults and young people, it will aim to inspire and cultivate the creativity skills that is essential in the culture-based social innovation process, aided with the use of digital tools.

IO2: THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION TOOLBOX  will contain a range of measures, tools, techniques and practical guidance for Adult and Youth Educators wishing to incorporate social innovation activities into their teaching strategies, with a particular focus on increasing their confidence in using digital tools. The toolbox will accelerate digital transformation and use of digital means to adapt to the way creative products, cultural goods and events are created, managed, disseminated, accessed and consumed

IO3: CULTURAL SOCIAL INNOVTAION HACKATHON AND GUIDE  Intensive 1- or 2-day cultural social innovation trainings for both adult/youth educators and young adults on how to carry out/develop CSI projects. The guide makes a clear case of the relevance of a Hackathon for adult and youth educators to implement this new pedagogic approach, and provide a step by step guide on how to organise a hackathon.
