Experts on festivals and youth work have joined forces to create a tailored suite of resources, so that festivals can realize their potential as platforms for social innovation. FUSION will enable young people/organizations to use festivals as a steppingstone to implement their own ideas, products and technologies for the benefit of society.
What We Do
Festivals will act as social innovation incubators that empower young people to realize their potential to change society and will inspire them to tackle social issues in innovative ways beyond the scope of the event itself.
FUSION enables festivals and youth organizations to collaborate and unlock their potential for social innovation by providing them with a tailored suite of resources. These include an All You Need to Know Guide, a Reach and Teach Toolbox, Online Educational Resources as well as Alliances and Action Plans focused on social innovation at festivals.
