WE GENERATE SPACES FOR THE EMERGING SOCIETY

More collaborative, fair and sustainable

SOCIAL INNOVATION

Social innovation, both human and digital, is currently our main field of action. Our proposals seek to generate spaces that allow us to experience the new society that is emerging.

Living labs are our main bet to achieve this goal. Spaces where disruption, experimentation, personal and collective growth and cooperation, both between people and between organizations, create today what will be the norm tomorrow: a more collaborative, fair and sustainable society.

From our point of view, social innovation, and proposals such as living labs, are the best answer to the greatest challenge facing the social sector today: how to generate new responses to social problems in these moments of withdrawal from the public sector and growth of inequalities.

Social innovation, as we understand it:

  • It adds value to people and organizations, since it places social causes at the center of the design of solutions.
  • Its character is disruptive, it represents a leap in the answers given so far.
  • They are models that incorporate sustainability: in multiple dimensions, including the economic aspect.

WE CAN BE YOUR PARTNERS IN EUROPEAN AND INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

EUROPEAN PROJECTS

The XUL Foundation has experience in transnational European projects. Currently, we take part in the following European initiatives:

  • IYE-LABs: a transnational cooperation partnership that allows a group of stakeholders from youth, volunteering and social inclusion backgrounds to collaborate in a project aimed to foster inclusive youth environments.
  • Crossroads Europe: an Europe for Citizens programme that aims to mobilise the debate on the future of Europe among different local stakeholders through their participation in social labs, which will be carried out either f-2-f or digitally.
  • Zero Waste: the impact of our choices, a Youth mobility Erasmus+ programme aiming at raising awareness at an individual level, as well as empowering young people, including youth with fewer opportunities, to make informed choices and play an active role in the ecological transition through the use of new technologies.
  • DEE-GEAYS: Digital Education Era-Global citizenship Education for Activating Youth online Space, a Strategic Partnerships for youth (KA205).
