Session 2: Does Public-Private-People (3P) Collaboration Yield the Best Social Innovations?
Time: 11.00 am – 12.30 pm (90min)
Social innovation is the process of developing and deploying solutions to adress challenging and often systemic social and environmental issues. The rise of social innovation labs in recent years has encouraged new forms of cooperation between the people, public and private sectors. These labs typically focus on small neighbourhoods or precincts and provides ample opportunities for prototyping and testing of ideas to adapt to the needs of the society. How can local governments work with businesses, research institutions and citizens to create a healthy ecosystem that enables innovative solutions to thrive in cities?
