Social Innovation is a way to transform existing systems and create a sustainable society for future generations

CHANGE INITIATIVES

New opportunities for societal change

The Academy is a place where ideas and new ways of addressing systemic societal challenges are developed - and where we come together for collective action.

Through mobilization of our collective power, we drive change agendas that push practices and political processes. We insist on involving those affected by the problems and challenging existing power dynamics and decision-making processes.

We are currently working on a change agenda called "En Vej til Alle" (Paths for Everyone). The Academy's work has been the starting point for the partnership between Bikuben Foundation, Mobilize, Modstrøm - Association of FGU students and youth around FGU, and Social Development Center SUS. The partnership has collaborated with the Danish Reform Commission to create opportunities for all young people and has mobilized a coalition for change among key societal actors. 

Knowledge

Knowledge

We are on a continuous learning journey. We stay updated theoretically and practically so that we can contribute to and qualify the public debate about social change and systemic transformation. We disseminate knowledge and insights by writing opinion pieces, articles, and reports.

EVENTS

We gather around what is important for society

The Academy members gather several times a year to share knowledge, create new knowledge and put our collective power into action. We host labs and networking events where we develop proposals for systemic change initiatives and work concretely with social change opportunities. In addition to our own events, you will find us at societally relevant events such as Folkemødet, Roskilde Festival and at events with our partners.
