Innovation for Societal Change: “People Talks”

PEOPLE – Innovation for Societal Change will end by December 2011. A Final Conference called PEOPLE Talks will take place in Brussels the 10th of November to disseminate the main outcomes gained over the past 3 years.

This is a one-day conference for those interested in innovative new ways of improving well-being and cohesion in the context of economic, demographic and societal changes.

The purpose of the conference is to share the outcomes of the PEOPLE project including key policy recommendations in the context of societal and demographic changes and current and emerging economic and public health challenges.

This is an opportunity to:

· Hear about the outcomes of the PEOPLE project

· Contribute your own ideas

· Join the interactive exhibition sessions

· Network with experts from government, policy, health and social sectors

· Feed ideas into policy making

· Give your input and view on Twitter with hashtag #people_eu

7 European regions & provinces (Andalusia, South-East England, Stockholm, Noord-Brabant, Malopolska, Venice, and Timis) have been exchanging practices and experienced innovative approaches to face one of the main challenges for our societies, the demographic changes now affecting Europe. This knowledge should be certainly transferred to the policy agenda, both at European and regional levels so the ‘PEOPLE Talks' Conference is first targeting all relevant networks operating in Brussels and working on the evidences and consequences of the demographic changes in Europe.

PEOPLE Partners have been processing several policy recommendations resulting from the activities conducted under 6 objectives (Reconciliation of work and private life, E-health and independence, Silver economy, Social and e-inclusion, Social entrepreneurship & Civil society empowerment). Together with that rich exchange of experiences within the partnership, PEOPLE has co-financed 7 Sub-projects on an interregional cooperation basis which have been enlarging and enriching the production of analysis & investigation, pilots & training and other guidelines.

The conference programme is now available and the event can be watched by videostreaming (see the website for more details)
