Accelerating the impact of international cooperation through social innovation.

#EnablingTheFuture event

On 15 December, Enabel invites you to join its first event on social innovation in its office in Brussels or online.

By inviting social innovators, experts and partners in innovation, Enabel wants to inspire participants and invite them for joint action.

This first edition of #EnablingTheFuture will evolve around the Wehubit programme, Enabel’s innovation fund and flagship program supporting scaling-up of digital social innovations. The event will be a unique opportunity to meet social innovators and innovation teams from West, East and Central Africa, the Middle East and Europe working on digital social innovations in e.g. e-health, climate smart agriculture, EdTech, women empowerment, digital skills and smart cities.

In the future #EnablingTheFuture will evolve into an annual campaign for joint action and investments into innovation and impact around global challenges, offering inspiration on impactful innovation and alternatives to the North-South discourse in international cooperation and fostering alliances between public, private, research and civil society actors in Europe, Africa and the Middle-East.
