How can social innovation activate local networks for decarbonisation?

Posted on Posted in Events, Low-carbon innovations

This was the topic of a workshop attended by Hazel Pettifor in March 2019, hosted by the DEEDS project. The workshop brought together a range of experts from both business and research, tasked with identifying knowledge gaps and R&I priorities for the coming 5-10 years.  Discussions throughout the day highlighted many parallels with the SILCI project. These include the importance of local social networks, the role of social entrepreneurs as potential change agents, and the importance of local institutions (communities, businesses) in developing innovations that create local social wealth.
