European Social Innovation Competition – Launch Series: Beyond Traditional Skills

14 April, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Beyond Traditional Skills: boosting creativity and leadership for a systemic social change with Daniela Papi-Thornton.

This webinar will kick-off the 2021 Competition’s Launch Webinars series, providing a fresh perspective on skills to our audience. Attendees will get a deep insight into non-traditional skills – ie. competencies that go beyond traditional cognitive skills (e.g. creative, relational, systems thinking skills, etc.) – and new mindsets for a new idea of economy and society.

The webinar seeks to convey to the participants the importance of integrating and fostering non-traditional skills and mindsets when designing and developing innovative training solutions. The audience will understand how such skills are more and more important to cope with complexity and foster resilience in a time of fast-changing educational needs.
