Events 2012

<<<<<<<<<MAR 2012>>>>>>>>>

How does this work?

  • Anyone registered either as an “Organization” or a ”Living Bridge” can host an activity and share it with this year’s Social Capital World Forum.
  • What this means in practice is simply, that if you will for example arrange a workshop, seminar, conference and so forth with a focus on social capital you can place it under this tab.
  • Then we as facilitators will provide space for sharing experiences from the activity that will be hosted. For example we will offer social media coverage, and we might connect up with you and “broadcast” the activity for a global audience in the social web / social media.

Your benefit
Connect with people crossing the boundaries of your networks (“bridging”!) and create new social capital, start new cooperations …

Gratefully the “living bridges” have shared information about their specific activities. Some are listed below – you find more information here on our specific google spreadsheet:

[tag: Culture & Art]

  • Our aim at the Institute for Cultural Entrepreneurship is to help stimulate interaction between economics and philosophy and open up new perspectives for everyone involved. It means basing profit projections on longer-term aims than quarterly reports, and an approach that goes beyond money to take on board, for example, carbon footprints, or financial models that provide creative artists with a decent livelihood. It also means fostering brilliant ideas at the interface of different sectors and disciplines (the Medici effect).

  1. Hello from HUB Berkeley in California. Thank you so much, Bert! I am working on a Social Innovators Exchange Program with SOCAP. We are organizing an American Team to Malmo, and want to work with you and Darko on organizing a team to SF for SOCAP, then work on the World SE Forum in Rio 🙂
