Last week a delegation of representatives from City of Malmö, Perfect Place, Media Evolution, and MEDEA went to Bilbao to visit DenokInn (www.denokinn.eu) which is an organisation supporting social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
Being the homeland of Mondragón Cooperative Corporation (www.mcc.es) the Basque country has a long tradition of running projects with a social approach. Together with a range of collaborators, national and local authorities, DenokInn is establishing a Social Innovation Park (SI Park), referred to as a “Social Silicon Valley”. The SI Park will be located in Santurtzi, and host: the Social Innovation Laboratory (G-Lab), the Social Innovation Academy and the Social Enterprise Generator.
A written report summarising impressions, and experiences from the study visit will soon be produced. Until then, have a look at a series of photos from the visit.
