How can social innovation contribute to the Green Deal’s objectives? A new SIMRA brochure of examples

Presented in December 2019, the European Green Deal is the Commission’s strategy to make the EU’s economy more sustainable and carbon neutral by 2050. This strategy acknowledges the magnitude of climate change’s effects on the current world system as well as the role of citizen-led initiatives and civic engagement as fundamental steps to the success of a just, inclusive and on time transition.

Social inclusion, civic engagement and empowerment of local communities are at the core of the SIMRA project (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas) and any social innovation initiatives. These ingredients trigger the creation of new organisational and governance models for our society that might be able to cope with raising societal challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, increasing inequalities etc.

SIMRA recently published the new brochure “Social Innovation: A catalyst for the European Green Deal” which gathers 11 examples on how social innovation can contribute to delivering Green Deal’s priorities. This collection of examples goes through a range of topics including resource management, low-carbon energy sources, circular and bio-based economy, zero pollution, transport and many more.

You can also access SIMRA’s collection of brochures here and get inspiration for your own territory on various topics such as forestry, rural services, social innovation in mountain areas and much more.
