“Social innovations are defined as new ideas that satisfy social needs more effectively than existing alternatives and which, at the same time, create new relationships and new collaborations.” (Social Innovation White Paper).
As SAFE Association, we are strongly committed to the definition and management of Social Innovation projects that can act as a lever for the development and empowerment of local territories and the people populating them. We work alongside numerous local authorities (municipalities, associations, social cooperatives, etc.) to craft and test innovative and sustainable solutions designed to address the social needs of communities. Our highly customizable proposals have manifold aims such as promoting the harmonious development of the local socio-economic fabric (by delivering educational training and giving support to young people), encouraging an ethical and supportive corporate culture, but also facilitating social and work integration processes to the benefit of vulnerable subjects.
In the past years, in partnership with the “social-oriented” company ETHIC srl, SAFE has supported public and private entities nationwide in the creation of business incubators and innovation workshops aimed at soliciting youth entrepreneurship, emancipating young talents, and encouraging them to make treasure of the opportunities offered by their territory of origin. In collaboration with schools, we have designed innovative and replicable projects to combat high schools’ educational poverty and together with public bodies and other strategic players in the area, have developed new forms of community welfare of public-private mold.
