Are you interested in the topic of innovation? And what are the cultural factors that organisations need in order to foster innovative thinking? What is important for development of innovative youth practices from the perspective of organisational cultures? Join us at the fourth #EAYW Webinar “Cultures of Innovation” on Thursday, 10th March 2022, from 9:30 to 12:00 and find out!
‘Culture eats strategy for breakfast.’ It seems having an intention to innovate and setting the right strategies to do so is not enough, if the ‘right’ culture is not in place. In this webinar, we aim to explore what are the ‘cultural factors’ and conditions within an organisation that foster innovative thinking and the development of innovative youth work practices.
The webinar will start at 9:30 with optional 20 min. of well-being activities, led by embodiment trainer Sandra Gojić. From 10.00 – 12.00, the content-part of the webinar will include short inputs and well as moments of exchange among participants allowing you to relate the inputs to your and the other participants’ youth work-related experiences.
To stimulate reflection, we will have an input about the organisational factors found in the recent EAYW research on innovation.
In addition to that, we have invited a guest expert specialised in innovation management in NGOs that should help us to realize what youth work organisations can learn from other professional fields about innovation. Carlos Azevedo is the President of the Board of Directors and CEO at IES-Social Business School, founder and former president of the Board of Directors of ESLIDER-PORTUGAL – National Network for Civil Society Leaders – and former Board member at EUCLID-Network – European Network for Civil Society Leaders. He is also the author of several books on social innovation and holds different engagements in higher education in the fields of economics, business and social entrepreneurship.
