'Social innovation has grown quickly in Spain in the last 5 years, however, as the last report of COTEC Foundation indicates: “It is still an incipient movement full of modest initiatives”. In this initial field, but of constant stimulation, we come back within the III Forum of Social Innovation. The event is a space to promote social change in the world. It is a space to find solutions to current problems, and to do it through social innovation. The event that increasingly attracts more visitors will be happening on the 30th and 31st of March 2017 in Valencia.'
