BUFSIE project is organising a series of webinars with the aim to introduce to academics, researchers, and other staff members the concept of Social Innovation Education (SIE) model, its objectives, its anticipated outcomes and the relevant pedagogical methods.

What is the aim of the project?

The overall aim of the BUFSIE project is to scale up the educational pedagogy of SIE and transfer it to the higher education level. It aspires to assist educators to embed SIE into their culture and teaching practices, as well as empower students with a mixture of social, entrepreneurial and active citizenship competences.

What is Social Innovation Education?

SIE is a collaborative and collective learning process for the empowerment and socio/political activation of students to drive social change regardless of their professional pathways. It builds their competences to identify opportunities for social value creation, to form collaborations, build social relationships and take innovative action for a more democratic and sustainable society.
