The event is hosted in the margins of the European Social Innovation Competition Academy and is co-hosted with Nesta Italia, Turin City Lab and UniCredit an the social enterprise The Musichall theater.

It will first present social innovation in Torino and address important questions:

Experts from across Europe will also discuss the wider status of social innovation focusing on:

· success stories of innovations that create social impact;

· how to amplify the scale and sustainability of successful social innovations;

· how to align top down policies, regulations, laws and taxes with bottom up

During the event, you will also have a chance to meet the Semi-Finalists of the European Social Innovation Competition 2019, who will be available to present and discuss their solutions to this year’s competition topic: “Challenging plastic waste”.
