Welcome Note It gives us great pleasure to extend to you all a warm welcome on behalf of the 2011 Asia NGOInnovation Summit organisers, the Hope Institute and Intel Asia Pacific. We would like to expressour sincere gratitude to all the participants, supporting organisations and volunteers of ANIS 2011. Last year, we took our first step towards building ANIS together. By convening the leaders of major NGOsand organisations working towards social innovation, we shared our views and understanding of social inno-vation, and initiated a platform on which knowledge and experiences can be shared among different groups.This year, we will build on these achievements and deepen our discussions on the role of civil society andorganisations in enabling social innovation. We will also share our thoughts and experiences on the strategiesand methodologies of designing and developing social innovation, with the objective of building capacity. Asia is a very diverse region probably more than any other continent in the world.Countries here are truly diverse in political systems, social structure, economic development, religion andculture. We have many social challenges to address, and our shared experiences, collaboration, tools ofmedia and information & communication technology will be fundamental in our ability to evolve solutions.The big question is: Will the countries in Asia be able to benefit from each other’s experiences and bringabout solutions towards creating better societies? We believe we can make a difference together.As a Korean proverb tells us, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with the first step.”We believe that the ANIS network will contribute to greater cross country collaboration, sharing andcapacity building to co-create a flourishing space for social innovation.We hope that you will join us in this path of learning and doing. Finally, we would like to express special thanks to our partners including Beautiful Store and Beautiful Coffee,Jeju Olle, Jeju Alternative Institute Community, Korea Federation for Environmental Movement of Jeju, Jeju Resi-dent’s Self-government Solidarity, Jeju Solidarity for Participatory Self-government and Environmental Preserva-tion, Asian Regional Exchange for New Alternatives (ARENA), UN Global Compact Network Korea and DaumCommunications for their generosity and openness to hold this Summit at the beautiful island of Jeju.Thank you.

Concept NoteIntroduction The HOPE Institute and Intel Asia will jointly host the 2nd Annual Asia NGO Innovation Summit (ANIS) following thesuccessful inaugural event which was held in 2010. This year’s aim is to explore and develop practical methods andtools to scale up social innovation across the region from pilot to mainstream. This year’s theme is “Promoting SocialInnovation in Asia: Strategies and Methods”. From the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh and the Barefoot College in India to the Social Innovation Park in Singaporeand KOTO in Vietnam, from the Social Invention Program in South Korea to the Social Innovation Camps in Australia,novel ideas which meet the region’s social needs have been created, scaled up, and replicated across Asia as well asall over the world. From a global perspective, Asia has played a significant role in working to solve long-standing and seeminglyintractable social problems as well as those that are newly emerging. Learning lessons from Europe as well as fromour own experiences, we realized that existing systems and approaches to the social problems are not as effectiveas they once were. This realization made us aware of the need to be conscious of the importance of social innovationand to search for ways to generate and promote social innovation. Social Innovation is more than a buzz word. It refers to socially-innovative movement that is a positive force in soci-ety and works to harness society’s capacity to act. Social innovation does not happen by chance. Social innovationcannot grow and scale without strategies to develop it and evaluate its impact. Asia is leading the way to promotesocial innovation at every level and across the different sectors. We are proud that the 2nd Annual Asia NGO innova-tion Summit will provide you with the tools and knowledge to promote social innovation in socially-related sectors.Key Questions and Focus Areas Over the past few years, a wide range of disasters and hardships have hit Asia. The global economic recession andnatural disasters such as earthquakes, the recent tsunami, coupled with the explosion of the nuclear power plantin Japan, have illustrated the necessity of taking a new approach to address these issues. There is a strong sign ofemergence of such a new approach. Recently social innovation initiated and led by citizens has had a great impact on a society. Individuals can makethemselves heard even without the support of NGO’s or NPO’s. They can express their opinions directly by usingsocial networks or blogs, and this naturally contributes to the formation of public opinions and new solutions. Thedemocratic movement triggered and spread by Twitter and social financing using crowd funding are a couple ofexamples of these phenomena. Citizens act as activists, journalists, educators, social entrepreneurs, bankers andpolicy makers and so on. Under such social changes, the role of civil society should be reconsidered in order to accelerate social innovation.This role of the public sector also needs to be considered, including governments, and the private sector includingcorporates. All these different sectors are required to identify a new way of interacting with each other and encour-age and support social innovation led by citizens. This shift also underlines the necessity of new tools and methodswhich can be utilized by these sectors. Several examples of these tools and methods are world café for citizenparticipation, SROI (Social Return On Investment) for evaluation of social values, social impact bonds for evaluationof social impact and effective provision of public services. These methods should efficiently and effectively accom-modate opinions and solutions made by individuals. This prompts ANIS to address the following two key questions:Key Questions• What is the role of civil society in Asia in the promotion of social innovation?• What practical methods and tools can be developed to promote social innovation? In order to answer these key questions, the following focus areas are selected for ANIS participants to exchangetheir knowledge and experiences:
Concept NoteFocus Areas(1) Social innovation initiated and/or led by citizens(2) Social venturing and social financing for fostering social enterprises(3) ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and social media(1) Social innovation initiated and/or led by citizens A growth in public awareness of social issues and usage of new ICT including social media has offered great op-portunities for anyone to make their contribution to the diffusion of social innovation. Attendees will discuss manyrecent social innovation cases initiated and led by citizens in Asia. The main emphasis of this discussion will be thefollowing:- How can citizens create previously non-existing solutions to classic problems?- How can citizens build their competency to implement their innovative solutions?- How should civil society reinforce social innovation initiated and led by citizens?(2) Social venturing and social financing for fostering social enterprises Social enterprise is probably the most successful social innovation to have spread in Asia. The relative weaknessof governments and welfare systems in the region has clearly encouraged creative individuals to provide their ownsolutions to entrenched social problems. The notable success of social enterprises in Asia has now encouragedmany newcomers to create their own social enterprises. Nevertheless, it is still in doubt about whether all theseenthusiastic attempts are mature enough to be sustainable. Attendees will discuss creative and innovative ways ofsocial venturing and social financing, which can help social enterprises in Asia grow more strongly. Especially severalapproaches to evaluate social impacts of social enterprises, such as SROI and social impact bonds, have widelyreceived attentions from main social investors. Strengths and weakness of these methods need to be reviewed andshared. The main emphasis of this discussion will be the following:- What strategies and methods are most needed to incubate social enterprises in the region?- What types of support and environment are needed for successful social pilots to be grown into sustainable enterprises?- What are appropriate methods for evaluating the social and financial impact of social enterprises?- What is the role of civil society in resolving the above issues, and how can it build capacity to play such a role?(3) ICT (Information Communication Technologies) and social media Undoubtedly ICT and social media have been significant tools for citizens to participate in social innovation frominitiation, cultivation through to scaling up. The rapid change in the ICT environment has always been a new opportu-nity as well as a new challenge to innovators. Adoption of mobile technology to boost microfinance in Africa such asM-Pesa, and crowd funding using online platforms such as Kiva have attracted more people to provide their inno-vative ideas to create social solutions. Attendees will discuss how ICT and social media can be leveraged to scalesocial innovations and promote creativity to enable change for social good. The main emphasis of this discussion willbe the following:- How can ICT-led solutions foster collaborative innovation?- How does ICT change the relations between different sectors, including civil society, the public sector, the private sector and households?- How can information and data be captured to provide innovative applications that create social impact?

Attendees will have a chance to discuss their best practices with other attendees via face to face conversations. Social Innovation Lab To make discussions more concrete and concentrated, three sessions debating different focus areas will be run in parallel. Each session will be regarded as a lab where related cases will be presented and a number of small discussion groups will examine practical methods and find appropriate ways to use them. Open Space Anybody attending an open space is given a chance to submit the main discussion topic. There are no set themes other than the establishment of a collaborative project between attendees, to continue after the close of the event. The Open Space discussion will be directed towards a final result of achievable plans for collaborative projects among delegates of different nations in the region
ANIS ActivitiesField Visit : Jeju Olle In the Jeju dialect of Korean, “Olle” means a narrow pathway that runs from the street to the front gateof a house. The Jeju Olle is a network of walking paths across Jeju Island. “Olle” sounds the same as“Would you come?” in standard Korean, so “Jeju Olle” sounds like “Would you come to Jeju?” Jeju Olle’s founder MyungSook Suh was the chief editor of a weekly news magazine.After working hard as a journalist for twenty years, she felt exhausted and empty. To have a break, shewent on the 800km Santiago Pilgrimage from France to Spain in September 2006. When she returnedto her hometown on Jeju Island in Korea, she teamed up with a few volunteers to make a hiking trailin Jeju. Her team explored Jeju Island and looked for hidden and forgotten footpaths that cars cannotaccess. They had to restore old paths, connect broken paths and create new paths so that hikers canenjoy the hidden beauty of the island. The first trail path was opened to the public in September 2007. Since then, Ms. Suh has establishedthe non-profit organization called the Jeju Olle Foundation and it has created a total of around 216kmof walking trails. Currently, eighteen trail routes have been opened to hikers and the Jeju Olle team isstill exploring and developing new routes. On average, each Jeju Olle trail is around 10-18 km. They offer a unique opportunity to enjoy the Jeju coastlines, local villages, dark green forests,waterfalls, cliffs, and palm trees. All the Olle paths are developed with minimal human intervention. All the markers indicating the route are made from eco-friendly materials. The Jeju Olle has become one of the best routes for hikers to be reinvigorated and inspired throughrelaxation of body and soul in nature.
Special eventPerformance A Singing Group <Modajung> Modajung (meaning “together with”), a singing group under the Jeju Resident’s Self-Government Soli- darity, was formed in March 2008 to give hopeful messages to Jeju citizens and consisently has done diverse performances to achieve its goal. All members have jobs and families but they have regularly performed once a year since 2009 with passion for singing songs by overcoming individuals’ hardships despite busy schedule. By doing so, they have shown their talents accumulated through the performances on various stages. They have participated in major cultural events held in Jeju such as The Commemorative Event of Jeju 4.3, Citizens’ Event for Inhibiting the Legacy of Gwangju Democratic Movement, the Cultural Event in Memory of the Late Yang Young-chan, and Citizens’ Peaceful Grand March for Gangjeong Village. From this year, they do performances in festivals such as Seosara Cherry Blossoms Festival, Yeon- dong Road Festival without Cars, and the Cultural Event for Commemorating the Late Jin Ah-young to become close to local people. Modajung will make consistent efforts to grow as a beloved singing group through diverse activities, visiting and singing together with local people.
Special eventA Korean Traditional Performance Team <Gahyang Pansori Madang>Opened in 2002, ‘Gahyang Pansori Madang’ focuses on coaching and performance to diffuse thePansori and the folk song from southern province. Especially Heesoon Hyun(President, Gahyang Pansori Madang) is the traditional singer who studiesthe folk song from southern province and Chunhyang-ga under Soyoung Kim, Sugung- ga, Chunhy-ang-ga in full under Myungsin Kim. Since 2004 Gahyang Pansio Madang has annually performanced at Spring Welcoming Exorcism ofTamna (Tamnaguk Ipchun Gut Nori)’, which is a traditional folk festival of Jeju. The festival is a time-honored celebration originally invoked to pray for good health as well as a bountiful spring harvest. Various shamanistic practices are well-developed in Korea. Korean shamanism has deep roots in folk beliefs from ancient times. It is closely related to ancient rites offered to the gods of heaven and has, over time, become infused with Buddhist tradition. Korean shamanism is distinguished by its seeking to solve human problems through a meeting of humanity and the spirits. This can be seen clearly in the various types of gut(굿) that are still widely observed. Korean shamans are similar in many ways to those found in Siberia, Mongolia, and Manchuria. They also resemble the yuta found on the Ryukyu Islands, in Japan. Jeju Island is also a center of Korean Shamanism. Muism has exerted influence on the bases of some of the Korean new religions, such as Cheondoism and Jeungism. The ‘gut’ is a rite in which the shaman offers a sacrifice to the spirits and, through singing and dancing, begs them to intercede in the fortunes of the world. The shaman wears a colorful ritual costume, speaks while in a trance as a spiritual oracle, and sings and dances to the accompaniment of music.
