Hi every body,
As mentioned in the last FAT meeting, here is the information about the social innovation incubator of the Melting Pot. http://siiaward.org/apply/
There is a public presentation of the Awardees of last year on the 25th of June. (see the invitation below). I think it would be a great idea if anyone from the Forest could come. I plan to go, but it would be more interesting if you took this opportunity to meet the Melting Pot team and could make your own opinion about the idea of applying to this Social innovation incubator for the next year. Dead line on the 30th of June. Let me know about it, I can be responsible of the application, but I will need a brainstorming meeting with a wider group of people to focus the application on the good points.
