Abstract:
The WIT project was initiated to deepen and exchange knowledge on “Social Innovation in Europe“ by covering changes to society. We use experiences derived from valuable Italian, Bulgarian and Lithuanian projects, initiatives and practices relevant to the field. To this end, national and international experiences from the public, private and non-profit social sector will be included. One focus has been to explore the themes of “Family composition, the effects of labour relations and the difficulties of financing social change in an era of budget constraints.“
