Meet the most promising young social innovators from Europe, Asia and Africa.

The SIA Summit 2019 is a gathering of 150+ young social innovators from Europe, Central Asia and East Africa. It takes place in the vibrant Ukrainian capital Kyiv from December 3rd to 7th 2019. The event welcomes all impact ventures that won the Social Impact Award in 2019: Social innovators challenging the status quo in areas such as migration, health, education or climate change. Beyond that, the SIA Summit also serves as the ultimate meeting point of leading international and national organisations working at the frontier of social entrepreneurship and youth empowerment.

For SIA Winners: Impact Camp

The ‘Impact Camp’ provides the winning teams of Social Impact Award 2019 with an intense personal learning experience and aims to equip them with essential skills for a successful journey as future entrepreneurs and change makers. Participants will develop their individual capacities in more fundamental skill areas such as leadership, innovation, strategy and sales, led by a highly experienced team of facilitators.

The ‘Vision Retreat’ is designed to empower all SIA organizers in reflecting on the progress of their activities throughout 2018 and strategize on how to further develop the program. In interactive sessions, we leverage the international dimension of SIA’s growing team to learn from each other and co-create around topics such as education, incubation, partnerships or ecosystem building.
