International Seminar,
Emilia Romagna Region

Viale della Fiera 8 Bologna,
16 December 2013.

The Social Business Seminar between Enterprise and Creativity has involved many representatives of local authorities and over one hundred young students, aged 16 to 25, coming from high schools and universities in the province. The event was organized to raise awareness among young students on the topic of Social Business, an ideal model of enterprise that allows the solution of social problems in the community.

After a first part dedicated to discussing on the theme and outlined by the most significant actors in Social Business, young students organized small workgroups to develop social business solutions. During the workshop, students were guided by tutors and assisted by designers at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, which allowed them to fully express creative potential in the creation of innovative business ideas and be able to respond to social problems of the area.

The event was carried out in close collaboration with the Emilia Romagna Region, with which the Foundation shares the strong will to fight social exclusion, starting with forming and raising awareness of future generations about the existence of other economic models where people are central.
