INVITATION: Hacking the Future of Europe

Hacking the Future of Europe

Can social entrepreneurship, new narratives and
fresh political vision create change for the better?
19 February 2019
Fipra Offices, 227 Rue de la Loi, Brussels (MAP)
Registration and sandwich at 12h15. Kick-off at 12h45

Please join us for three presentations and a debate on the
concrete answers that 2019 can bring.

This is an event for you, a denizen of the EuroBubble – institutions, foundations, financiers, corporates, civil society, think tanks and academia. You are maybe also a social impact investor, a social innovator or entrepreneur.

Hosts & Speakers

ROBERT MADELIN
Fipra International, Host

Robert is Chairman of Fipra International. Fipra convenes knowledge-sharing events around the topics driving Europe’s future. This is the latest in a series to address the known unknowns around the upcoming political campaign, and to ask how corporate and institutional Europe can offer concrete support for out-of-the-box approaches to intractable problems and new opportunities.

AURA SALLA
European Political Strategy Centre

Aura is Communication Adviser at the European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC). Aura previously served in the Cabinet of Vice President Katainen. Aura is also Chairman of the Party Council of the Coalition Party Finland (EPP) and a member of the board of the European Movement International.

ERIKA WIDEGREN
Re-imagine Europa

Erika is founder and Director of Re-Imagine Europa (RIE). RIE acts as a catalyst and convener on issues of strategic importance for the future of Europe. One goal is to support social innovation in Europe. Social Innovation means very different things to different actors. RIE works with a number of different organisations whose focus is social innovation even though each organisation means slightly different things.

PHILIPP VON DER WIPPEL
ProjectTogether

Philipp is founder of ProjectTogether (PT). PT won the 2018 European Commission prize for trend-setters in EU Responsible Entrepreneurship. PT offers an online environment to select and mentor to success grass-roots initiatives and ideas to change society for the better. On the basis of solid success especially in Germany, PT looks to offer its skills and tool-box to new partners at EU level and across the continent.

On 19 February, you will have an opportunity to gain insights into these projects, and to explore the parallels between the re-imagine campaign to shape and deliver a new narrative around the European endeavour, on the one hand, and the ProjectTogether effort to empower local social innovators.
