AFLORA: Social Innovation Workshop

On July 26th, 2022, representatives of our non-profit organization participated in a social innovation workshop, that was offered by the Grupo Bolívar Innovation Hub in collaboration with the Aflora Program of the Bolívar-Davivienda Foundation. Individuals representing five local non-profit organizations, Chiquitines Foundation, Único Foundation, IMEK Research Center in Marketing & Development, Bibliotec Foundation and Emprende Mejor, participated in this training space.

The team of instructors shared knowledge about innovation processes and tools to address social and environmental problems, as well as to design innovative solutions responsive to the needs of people and their contexts. Through participatory and practical methodologies, the attendees incorporated the knowledge acquired in the solution of specific problems.

We thank the organizations that offered the training for providing an opportunity to exchange experiences and learn together with other organizations based in Cali.
