Final conference of the project “Management systems of coworking spaces for social innovation”

On the 23-26.05 DYPALL Network took part in the final meeting and conference of the project “Management Systems of Coworking Spaces for Social Innovation”.

During the conference, project partners shared good practices and practical tools mapped during the project, under the following topics:

  • Boosting learning potential of coworking spaces
  • Young people and coworking spaces – Universe of possibilities.
  • Impact of coworking spaces in local communities

The conference was an opportunity to share the final outcome of the project – the publication Coworking spaces for social innovation – Study on good practices. It presents 19 carefully selected practices mapped among coworking spaces from 9 countries with a focus on boosting social entrepreneurship and positively impacting local communities.

We concentrated our research on the practices that:

  • BOOST LEARNING POTENTIAL among the members of coworking spaces
  • are ORIENTED ON YOUTH and support young people with special programmes
  • increase the positive LOCAL SOCIAL IMPACT of a coworking space
  • represent interesting and valuable SUPPORT PROGRAMMES.
