Support 3-CO project by informing us about interesting social innovations in the bioeconomy and beyond!

Short survey on Social Innovations

The 3-CO project is looking for anyone’s support to develop a list of beneficial social innovations in various sectors, ideally in the bioeconomy, with a large geographic spread. These will be included as best practice examples in three brochures that will be communicated to consumers and civil society, private businesses and public bodies to support the switch towards socially and environmentally responsible behavior. Based on your contribution 3-CO will also develop policy recommendations on social measures to support better-informed decision-making processes, social engagement, and innovation.

What exactly is social innovation and how does it support sustainability and social change?

3-CO defines Social Innovations (SI) as new ideas (products, services, new organizations and models) that simultaneously meet social needs (more effectively than alternatives), create new social relationships or collaborations, and foster sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Typical examples for SI include non-profit projects such as upcycling/recycling/waste collection initiatives, sharing or donation of goods or food, mutual aid, open-source software, or business initiatives/social enterprises, fair trade companies, social impact bonds. For more examples, check the 3-CO article on social innovation here.

It takes only a couple of minutes to complete this survey. Thank you for your participation and support!
