  • Innovación social: ni aislada ni frágil, dota de sentido y
           soluciones a las interacciones entre políticas públicas y

    • Authors: Pablo Angulo Barcena
      Abstract: Public policies and territories are nowadays, the determining dimensions for social innovation, in a time when it pretends to use social innovation focused on market and business interests , but not as a response to social change. Nowadays, social innovation appears as an efficient, fair and sustainable solution to our societies. But it is not taking into account the difficulties caused by the interaction between agents and issues.  Innovation cannot be thought as a tool to produce short micro-projects, the aim is to consolidate the actions and to try to change the scale. This is the part that concerns to, and questions public policies and territorial dynamics and their capabilities to sustain social innovation along processes of maturation which tend to be longer.

  • La participació juvenil a la Fundació Marianao

    • Authors: Daniel Osiàs Valverde
      Abstract: Mobilizing young people in order to become leaders of the transformation of their environment is a widespread concern in the public administration, social institutions and government of our country. We often support the idea that today youth do not participate. Marianao Fundation wants to fight against this myth by developing a strategy based on creating real opportunities of participation. We take training as a tool to motivate young people and to provide youth empowerment to lead social transformations of their neighborhoods. The results of the project is measured by linking 80 youth that are organized in 9 different groups to develop social projects designed and built by themselves in a genuine breeding ground of participation and commitment with their community

  • El Raval y Tot Raval: innovación social'

    • Authors: Núria Paricio
      Abstract: Tot Raval Foundation is placed in the district of Raval in Barcelona and develops community work based on innovative strategies. The aim is to contribute to local development and to generate social economy through networking, responsibility between different social agents placed in the territory and citizenship implication. There are 302 organizations of all social, educational, cultural, health, occupational, economic and commercial fields. Through the years, the foundation has directed its action to convert Raval in a socially responsible territory promoting social values as: tolerance, recognition, respect, solidarity, co-responsibility, commitment, participation, sense of ownership, sustainability and civility taking into account that none of the challenges and social needs of society can be addressed without a strong collaboration and transversal work. Therefore we try to provide a multilateral response to the challenges and neighborhood needs on the global commitment of persons, associations, companies and institutions of Raval.  The Community and promotion programme of Raval as a Socially Responsible Territory is the reason for Tot Raval existence, the starting point that gives meaning to the actions promoted by the Foundation. Tot Raval is motivated by community action and its goal is to promote the local and sustainable development. Tot Raval expects to change ways of relation, participation, sharing and working in local social projects among the organizations, services, business and neighbours. It is a tool to increase opportunities and to improve collective activities enhancing reciprocal knowledge in a enriching and efficient way.

  • Innovació social: més societat o més mercat'

    • Authors: Rubén Martínez
      Abstract: As a way to tackle a economic and institutional crisis social innovation currently emerges from Supra-estate, estate and local organisms as a good solution to respond to social needs. But what does social innovation mean' Where does the concept come from' And which are the public policy that are reinforcing it' If Social Innovation aims to response effectively to some social problems that the welfare State could not face up means that the solution is more society or more market'. In order to respond to these questions, the article wants to highlight the importance of politicizing the space of connection and stress between public action and social cooperation. A space where discourses, models, concepts and ways of doing of public organisms are increasingly related to economic approaches.

  • Innovación social: un nuevo atajo entre el asfalto y el pedregal

    • Authors: Ricard Valls
      Abstract: Social innovation is not a temporary trend: social innovation is Europe 2020 strategy goal like other topics as innovation and competitiveness of the European society in a globalization framework. There is resistance to innovation and to social innovation, moreover by a civil society highly dependent from the public sector. The evolution of social innovation in a near future is still uncertain and depends on many factors related to the weakness of the concept and its application, connected to European funding, and might depend too from the use that Spain gives of these funds. The Spanish use of funds could distort, but they will not prevent social innovation important growth, although it may take place on the margins of a civil society, more concerned about the present and less concerned about tomorrow’s innovation.

  • Some reflextions on the governance of social innovation in Europe

    • Authors: Ana Gómez Narváez
      Abstract: The European Parliament’s regulation for the EU programme for Employment and Social Innovation is a step towards the governance of social innovation, amid the reigning confusion about its role vis-à-vis the State’s role in our post-crisis scenario, where citizens are finding themselves in increasingly vulnerable positions, and where austerity measures have created business ‘opportunities’ in social sectors such as education and healthcare.   The regulation stresses that both the ends and means of Social Innovation are social, alleviating the effects of unsustainable economic development. The governance of social innovation would necessarily subordinate economic to social benefits, and could foster the creation of relational capital, where social innovation could even function as an alternative intermediary between the State and its citizens, sidestepping the market, although it seems unlikely. The regulation includes notions from platforms against poverty giving political hope, but it is through our socially attuned collective intelligence that hope for the future can be found.

  • Critical social innovation in the smart city era for a city-regional
           european horizon 2020

    • Authors: Igor Calzada
      Abstract: In 2020, in the new EU strategic horizon[1] that is opening at present, the place should matter more than ever when it refers to territories that are envisaged from the Social Innovation paradigm (Moulaert[2], Mulgan[3] and Morgan[4]). Nevertheless, how will the suggested H2020 strategy based on Smart City and Communities[5], contribute and implement the so-called Social Innovation; facing realistic, economic and politic-driven issues in an increasingly territorially heterogeneous EU current context? This article aims to shed some light on the Critical Social Innovation (CSI) challenges from a constructive position.
