Social Innovation Design Challenge 2015-1 English | Korean
One part of Social Innovation taking place in Seoul is the innovation of the public sector. Since Won Soon Park was elected as mayor, the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) has encouraged citizen engagement in decision making processes as opposed to traditional one-way public communication.
It is an innovative governance model that pursues transparent communication between the city administration and the citizen. The SMG has led social innovation by establishing various facilitating intermediary organisations. The Social Innovation Park (SIP) is one of these facilitators.
The SIP gathers social innovators, encourages their collaboration and inspires experimentation for social innovation.
