After the experience on February 28th in Bologna, where Torino Social Impact shared the story of the Turin ecosystem in the field of social economy, it was a pleasure to host the Metropolitan City of Bologna and Social Seed, a laboratory of innovation for local organizations, on March 5th in Turin.

It was an opportunity to share the mission, values, and projects of Torino Social Impact, with the hope of inspiring the virtuous path that in Emilia Romagna aims to build a regional-level research and social innovation hub. Surely, we also take home many insights thanks to their story.

On this occasion, we visited some partner entities of the ecosystem operating in the fields of housing, care, and employment inclusion: the cooperative Esserci welcomed us at Pandàn, its welcoming social restaurant project, and the Cooperativa Accomazzi led us to discover Luoghi Comuni, the social housing project in Porta Palazzo promoting a more inclusive way of living.

The strength of the ecosystem lies precisely in this: sharing, stimulating, and being a generative example.
