Social Creativity Education


The Social Creativity Education Workshops are a two-day learning experience built around the question of how to build empathy and address it to complex social problems. Participants will learn how personal and societal values influence human decisions, and about the consequences that these decisions have.

These workshops will be developed and conducted with leading experts from various fields, who will engage participants through innovative formats and thus provide a unique learning experience.

They will take place on November 3rd and 4th, 2015, two days prior to the Global Social Business Summit. 


Why Social Creativity Education?

Today’s challenges and our daily actions are more complex and interdependent than ever before. Whether in personal or professional life, it is becoming increasingly crucial to make decisions and take actions that benefit society and our personal environments. While empathy will be one of the main skills to achieve this, empathic skills are often insufficiently prevalent in classical value chains.

Decisions today - the small ones and the big ones - need to be based on personal and societal values. Based on these values, a good understanding and awareness of the intended as well as unintended consequences of personal actions will be a major skill for better collaboration and a more sustainable society.


what will you learn?

  • Participants will learn new tools and methodologies to enhance team creativity and improve collaborative problem solving.
  • Participants will improve their verbal and non-verbal communication skills. They will learn to improve their active listening skills, in order to improve their ability to work in teams.
