Social innovations tackle poverty
The social innovation in architecture, art, and design (AAD) is used by collectives to assist poor communities of the global South and North by innovating their material environment. Social innovations have played an increasingly significant role alongside world and national social policies. However, they are often decontextualised and isolated from the urban and cultural policies causing poverty. The EU-funded SURBANIN project will establish a new understanding of how innovations globally emerge and move, are locally applied, and what is their impact. The project will compare slums in Colombia with homelessness in the Czech Republic, focusing on a range of heterogeneous social innovations like cable cars in Colombia and design innovations in homeless encampments in Czech cities.
