November 21st is the International Social Entrepreneurship day. On this day we present Project 100 that is dedicated for social business and social innovation in the field of children rights. The project contains 100 inspiring stories from Baltic and Nordic social entrepreneurs changing the lives of children.

During business breakfast we will be discussing how to help social business and innovations grow in Lithuania, and how businesses can be more actively involved into creation of meaningful social change.

We will get to know the ways of the Swedish, who improved the results of math exams, and of the Danish, helping children with dyslexia, and of Latvians, engaging children from small rural areas into extra curricular activities, and many more. What do they have in common? What does it take for social innovations to foster in Lithuania?

The event will be attended by social innovators from Lithuania and Latvia, Impact Manager of Reach for Change Ida Johansson, and partners of the Game Changer campaign in Lithuania – TELE2, TV3, The Ella fund and The Nordic Council of Ministers Office in Lithuania.
