Social Innovation: YOUR Planet @Superbloom Festival
Only 50% of German SUPERBLOOM Festival’s program is music – the other half is dance, science, fashion, and more. In dedicated areas, the audience can experience these topics hands-on in countless activities that are brought by young, creative organizations. One of these areas, YOUR Planet, shows festival goers how much fun it can be to learn about social and environmental issues. Read the whole story below.
This story is part of the EU-funded project FUSION – Festivals as Social Innovation Incubators. In FUSION, experts on festivals and youth work have joined forces to create a tailored suite of resources, so that festivals can realize their potential as platforms for social innovation. These include a good-practice guide with social innovation projects at European festivals, a how-to toolbox for developing projects specifically for festivals, and alliances between festivals and social innovation organizations. FUSION will enable young people/organizations to use festivals as a steppingstone to implement their own ideas, products and technologies for the benefit of society.
