The presentation and panel will open the discussion about social and societal innovation in the AAL framework.
Apart from Technological, Medical, Pharmaceutical and Business Model Innovations, the Active and Healthy Ageing calls for life maintaining behavioural patterns at individual level. For good and healthy life, behavioural transformation is often needed.
Transformation of one’s behaviour (to stop smoking, eat less, do more physical exercise) is however hard and calls for social innovation which has the capacity to support us to design and maintain active and healthy habits on daily bases. What is more, social innovation relying on emotions and sense organs will boost learning and behavioural transformation. Research has shown how e.g. music, art and physical exercise effect positively on the memory of people who suffer from dementia.
AAL funded Express to Connect (E2C) used creative methods first to explore what loneliness is about and then to co-design with seniors an internet based game to turn the loneliness into an opportunity to express themselves. That is an example of what the Digital Agenda can do in practice for the Active and Healthy Aging
Conventionally, in Finland, social innovation has had a strong tradition (100 Hundred Social Innovation from Finland). It has been used for community building (the Finnish Talkoot). Social innovation (maternity clinics) has degreased child mortality. Social innovation (like the Pyörre to renew the X-Ray and Laboratory Services) has been used to facilitate the transformation from an old health care service system to a new one.
Social innovation (like the Pyörre to renew the X-Ray and Laboratory Services) has been used to facilitate the transformation from an old health care service system to a new one.
Social innovation forerunners can be found among the LivingLabs movement. SeniorLab (Cornella), FinalSpurt (Helsinki) and CaringTv (Espoo) are examples of multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder environments, where innovation, value creation and service co-design is driven by senior citizens. They all empower seniors and other stakeholders by co-creating shared value. In the background, they are supported and promoted by the European Network of LivingLabs (ENoLL), which fosters open, user driven health innovation all over the world.
However, in order to enhance the businesses and societal transformation, we need even more. In order to implement the Europe 2020, we need to scale up the LivingLabs ecosystems from micro level product development and social innovation to the regional, national and international levels. That is, we need societal innovation to make the ecosystems to resonate. It will help us to develop the European Single Market, and it will generate new businesses and jobs.
Even better, the community level social innovations will get a change to travel from country to country, and hence, affect the quality of life of millions of people. That is what happened with the Nordic Walking when taken to Japan (Sendai-Finland Wellbeing Centre), or the Japanese Clinical Art was transformed into encounter art in Finland (Tiina Pusa and Hannele Niiniö), when the Taiwanese students took their Biking LivingLab to Tibet, Indonesia and Nepal (), or when another student started the first RLabs to empower the local community in Cape Town with social media skills for community based social care, and the movement then took over to many other countries (RLabs).
In order to make the innovation to flourish, Public-Private-People partnership, multilevel governance and cross-sector co-operation is needed. Public pre-procurement, legislative changes, and financial support will help, however it is the individuals who are the sine qua non of any transformation. People centred innovation - It means that public policy can link people to opportunities, infrastructures, competencies and incentives. Then, through the flow of feedback among the different stakeholders and functions the ecosystem will get a change to continuously renew itself. As a consequence, major societal innovation may take place and new industries may emerge. This type of comprehensive approach is not easy, but it may be the best way to tackle the aging as a Grand Challenge or to perceive it as a “Major Opportunity”. That is what ENoLL is for, and the new PPPP initiative, driven by ENoLL is aiming at. - Give the “Butterfly Effect” a chance to change the world!

From Gangster to Twitter, Clinton Liederman's story<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lbmmyRReBp0<br />South Africa's Cape Town is one of the world's most violent places. The area of Athlone on the Cape Flats is dominated by the so-called "American Gang," whose ruthless members dominate the drugs trade working with international drug cartels in South Africa. Out of this crime ridden world a social media revolution is taking place in which former gang leaders have banded together to use social media to help their community. Its called RLabs.org and this is the story of one of its members, Clinton Liederman (@Clinton316), a drug addicted gangster for nine years and now a social media entrepreneur with nearly 1,000 Twitter followers.<br />18<br />
