Join 150+ business leaders, policymakers and social entrepreneurs in Bangkok to explore the case for social innovation.
Like corporate innovation, social innovation creates value by applying new ideas to complex, often intractable global issues. But rather than creating profits for shareholders, it seeks to benefit society more broadly.
Now, more than ever, innovators have a chance to build on the growing awareness of social and environmental in Asia. The emerging social-enterprise sector has huge potential to bring about positive change.
The event will explore pressing questions:
· Can social innovation generate economic growth?
· How is social innovation changing traditional businesses?
· What social innovation will look like by 2030?

Southeast Asian Social Innovation Network 2nd International Conference Bangkok, Thailand 8 – 9 October 2019
This conference aims to showcase the best examples of social innovation research and practice throughout the region, especially the work being carried out in and with universities. Our theme for the 2nd South East Asian Social Innovation Network International Conference in Bangkok, Thailand (8>9 October, 2019) is Exploring the Asian Social Innovation Experience – Theory and Practice.
Increasingly, social innovation is being recognized as critical for sustainable human and social development, capable of addressing the major and interrelated challenges facing society. Across Asia, governments, corporations, social organisations and social investment firms demonstrate the extent to which the social innovation eco-system is growing. That being said, significant challenges remain – including a lack of shared definitions and priorities, uncoordinated support, fledgling networks, unclear policy and limited financial provisions – that undermine progress and impact.
The South East Asia Social Innovation Network is a project funded by the European Commission which helps universities to actively engage in social innovation in order to help their communities achieve sustainable and inclusive socio-economic growth, social cohesion and equity in South East Asia. SEASIN’s core objective is to create a new paradigm for knowledge exchange in universities and provide a platform for driven people focusing on innovation, sustainability and social entrepreneurship. We believe that social innovation can solve the most pressing challenges in the world, that youth is the driving force, and in collaboration with a clear purpose – it can all be done. The theme of the 2nd South East Asian Social Innovation Network International Conference underpins our core objective.
