Multistakeholder Workstudio Berlin – Collaboration for Sustainable Lifestyles through Business and Social Innovations

The last workstudio of the projects Budding Ideas Glocally for 2050 (BIG2050) and Business Innovation for Sustainable Scale-up (BISS) brought together 60 participants representing different stakeholders including policy makers, development agencies, entrepreneurs, civil society organizations, consumer groups, businesses, financial institutions, academia and media representatives from across Europe.

During the workstudio, examples of social action and business development innovation were explored to serve as a basis to identify success factors, drivers such as policies, consumer behaviour and technological developments, that enable the creation of partnerships to support scaling up the strategies and opportunities for sustainable living. This report summarizes the activities and outcomes of this one and half day event that took place in Berlin on November 4 and 5, 2013.
