Social Innovation as a Tool for Social Inclusion Lecture & Workshop Join Dr. Eglè Vaidelytė and Dr. Eglè Butkevičienė to gain a deeper understanding of how social innovation promotes new ways of solving social problems, embodies grassroots approaches, and enhances welfare. The lecture is to be followed by a social innovation workshop.*Space is limited. RSVP by Monday, NOV 13. Click here to RSVP or visit: In recent years, social entrepreneurship and social innovations have become increasingly important for both academic research and policy. The interest paid to the development of social entrepreneurship and social innovations by different actors (policymakers, academics, local communities, or even civil society at large) is not accidental. Acting as change agents for the well-being of society, social entrepreneurs present innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. Thus, social innovations could be a vehicle to create social change related to a better quality of life and for creating mechanisms to cope with different sets of social problems. The core ideas of social entrepreneurship could be implemented in different sectors of society. Being a source of inspiration for different NGOs, social enterprises, and social movements, social innovation promotes new ways of solving social problems, embodies grassroots approaches, and enhances welfare.
CLPS Distinguised Lecture Series All students welcome! Dr. Eglè Vaidelytė, Vice-Dean for Studies and Professor in the School of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities and Dr. Eglè Butkevičienė, Professor in the School of Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities, from the Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania will be leading our DPA Luncheon. Lithuania is a small European country with deep historical roots embedded in different forms and periods of migration. The early history of Lithuania dates back more than a thousand years and presents various social contexts of migration over the different periods of European history. Lithuania has also experienced high emigration numbers over the past two decades. People have been migrating for a wide range of economic and non-economic reasons: better salaries, better professional opportunities, education, personal and family reasons, etc. However, in recent years, the number of return emigration to Lithuania has considerably increased. While there are many assumptions and speculations about the reasons and causes of return migration, up to now, there is no clear academic evidence as to whether the return migration flows were influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic or for any other reasons.
