IN SITU VIENNA Mission:

Fostering a positive impact on society by making Social Entrepreneurship inclusive and creating spaces of inspiration and empowerment, where citizens – disregarding of their background – are seen as creators, not receivers, of social innovation.

1st approach:

The SIH will be a place where our training programme will take place for pupils, with an intergenerational element accompanying the 6 months programme. Retirees who have experience with (social) projects and Social Entrepreneurship will join the pupils’ program as inspirators & mentors. The training program will consist of a basic and an advance workshop series, adapting to the pupils’ needs, it will lead them to creative ideas on how to solve societal problems/challenges. Sourcing these problems they will start creating interesting business ideas and/or social initiatives. The pupils will work on their ideas within creative workshops and will be supported by mentors (retirees). In addition efforts are being made to connect the trainees to an internship. At the same time the mentors will learn how to support younger people, share their experience, knowledge & skills.

2nd approach:

The SIH sets the focus on (young) woman, who have difficulties entering into the labour markets. Therefore we are going to hold the workshops locally at organisations, that are working with that target group. The organisations can choose one or two workshops out of our training-package – based on the needs of their clients. If the workshop “excursion to a Social Business” or “project workshop” gets chosen, it will have an intergenerational element with the Social Entrepreneurship-retirees as mentors & inspirators.

In the ENAIP Veneto premises the first Social Hub has already been implemented. It is a physical space with an internet connection, laptops, where disadvantaged future entrepreneurs can meet and where they will improve skills and competences. It will be available also after project lifetime.

In the Veneto Region the “IN SITU” approach will be focused in the creation of multiple social hubs, not only in the partner institution, but also hosted in the premises of the regional stakeholders (trade unions, associations).

Together with all the associated local / regional institutions involved in the regional Hubs network, the purpose is to reach the target group with actions aiming at their individual empowerment. In particular the training will support the identified target (disadvantaged unemployed women) to integrate into the labour market by enhancing their entrepreneurial skills, competencies and mentality and personal skills and motivation.

Added value of the project will be the creation and the strengthening of a strategic regional network formed by care and third sector organizations, entrepreneurship experts, university. These institutions will become “innovation hubs” and will support their beneficiaries in the social innovation process, enabling them to become a part of the national and transnational IN SITU network. These actors will also contribute to the training suggesting innovative strategies, materials and sharing good practises. The involved stakeholders will take part also into the implementation of an intergenerational exchange with the younger participants, sharing competences and supporting younger women to identify a professional path that help their integration or reintegration into the Labour Market.

Describe shortly what you want to achieve with the SIH training and where you want to be by the end of project lifetime

The SIH training in the Stuttgart region is called “Empowered by Social Entrepreneurship”. The empowerment approach is an opportunity to overcome obstacles together with the participants, to equip them optimally with a combination of entrepreneurial, social and creative economic skills and thus pave the way to self-employment or employment. What is particularly important is regaining self-esteem and a fast track to labour market. Through the integration of the creative industries, we have access to innovative methods, flexible forms of organisation and the opportunity to learn from the innovative power of the creative industries, which helps us to develop and foster social innovation.

Aims/Goals
Describe shortly what you want to achieve with the SIH training and where you want to be by the end of project lifetime

Silesian SIH will be supported by Silesian triangle and together they will work on transnational approach to tackling intergenerational unemployment and social exclusion. SIH will bring together younger and the older (50+) unemployed citizens so that these two generations can learn from each other by exchanging experiences, bridging missing skills and competences. In Silesia region we will work with people with disabilities which are now the biggest group of long term unemployed Silesia citizens. The training will be based on the concept of blended learning. The main pillar of the course will be based on face-to-face workshops (mentoring & consulting) and supported by introduction of e-learning methodologies and visiting successful Silesian social businesses and Polish makerspaces (makers communities). The course material would be modified according to the needs of participants and added to a network environment in forms of notes, videos and lecturers for online accessing. The SIH will facilitate the communication among workshop participants via cloud-based instant messaging platform and discussion forums to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing, which would result in learning network creation.

Additionally, the key players in the regional triangles will learn from each other and a dynamic capacity building process will take place throughout the SIH life circle at different levels. SIH would play the role of liaison among the key players to establish and promote effective practices of electronic communication. WSB partner in SIH implementation will be regional authority of Silesia Region.

Representatives of socially excluded groups know their social problems the best and, with a support of SIH (WSB) and triangle experts on Management, Economics, Education, ICT, Health (physiotherapy), Transport and Logistics, Security (inc. Cybersecurity), will prototype innovative solutions to solve some social problems in Silesia Region.

As a specificity of Silesian SIH we would like to introduce training participants to creative industries and makers movement initiatives that may be an alternative way to develop their business ideas to solve social problems in Silesia Region.

SIH, thanks to cooperation with OWES (Social Economy Support Centers), may extend support for the most promising ideas and initiatives. SIH may provide financial support and training to participants for implementation of their social business ideas.

We are hoping for the pilot training to result in social initiatives and businesses, run by IN SITU participants, to solve some of social problems of target groups in Silesia Region. We would like to finish this project with SIH stabile structure and external stakeholders network to work with Silesia Region citizens, people with disabilities, WSB students (also the foreigners) on next social businesses and start-ups.

Aims/Goals
Describe shortly what you want to achieve with the SIH training and where you want to be by the end of project lifetime

From our point of view, through SIH training we wish to:

·         identify potential participants among the target groups of the project that have viable (social business) ideas or desire to actively participate in solving open issues in the society;

·         equip the participants with the required know-how to either, start and grow their social enterprise or implement a social initiative in their local environment;

·         provide constant support though SIH, information activities, networking events etc.

The ideal state at the end of the project would be a SIH that carries out support to participants that entered it during the project and is also open to new participants that will join it after the project is finished.
