The engagement of civil society is indispensable for a pluralistic, open and solidarity-based society. Both in the refugee crisis of 2015 and the Covid crisis of 2020, it became clear how directly, effectively and innovatively initiatives, associations, NGOs, NPOs and individuals – in short, all those who are usually considered “civil society” – are able to act.
What does the much-cited world after Covid look like? How do we use the potential of civil society engagement should the situation worsen again? And which approaches will help us achieve sustainable social innovation that reaches all participants in our society, even in times of non-crisis? The symposium will explore these questions with many experts, activists and decision-makers and try to find instruments and strategies for sustainable social innovation!
