Mobilizing Civil Society to Construct a Socially Sustainable Society: An INSITE workshop
Venice, 26-27 January 2012
INSITE is convening this workshop because we believe that the way in which our society organizes its innovation processes is unsustainable, socially as well as environmentally. Moreover, we believe that neither the market nor the state can in present circumstances provide leadership to generate an alternative path of social development. Instead, civil society must be mobilized to construct a collective vision of a socially sustainable society and organize the processes (which surely will include the participation of both state and market) that can realize this vision.
The aim of the workshop is to formulate a program of research and practice that can contribute to the processes of mobilization and construction that our society needs.
