Unleashing innovative power of local governments to come up with new entrepreneurial solutions for social issues.
Initiate is an initiative of Vereniging van Nederlandse Gemeenten to empower local governments for innovation within the social domain. We have been asked as the facilitating partner for Initiate in region West to design and facilitate the events and to support the teams to take it to the next level.
More than 25 people from local governments, social entrepreneurs and other care professionals have been coming together every month during a plenary event to come up with new ideas for social issues. Since march several challenges have been initiated in region west Netherlands to design new meaningful solutions for the better.
Finding new ways outside existing structures to face and challenge social issues by local governments is the main goal of Initiate. Throughout the country over 70 challenges are started. If you would like to find out more check the website.
