SI-LIVE Asia is the first international gathering in Asia that explores the unique role higher education institutions can play in making social innovation happen.
On 8-9 October in Kuala Lumpur, SI–Live Asia will bring together academics, practitioners, changemakers and students to co-create a future agenda for social innovation. The event will include talks, panel discussions, interactive sessions and a social enterprise market run by our partners The Good Tavern.
Including both a focus on the South East Asian context, and incorporating a global perspective, SI–Live Asia will focus on three major challenges faced by universities today in helping prepare for the future:
- Rethinking research and practice: how do we build shared knowledge and better connect research and practice?
- Rethinking learning: how do universities interact more with their wider communities, and help people prepare for the real world?
- Rethinking systems: how do we create the space to help universities as institutions transform? How do we shift systems?
This event is part of the European Commission project, SEASIN, which aims to develop a regional network of universities and practitioners seeking to promote and support innovation in their communities and across the region.
Contributing organisations include The Good Lab (Hong Kong), British Council, UNICEF< Impact Hub Kuala Lumpur, MaGIC and many more!
