Center for Social Innovation

The center for social innovation (CFSI) is a German NGO focused on digitalizing education, international cooperation and using innovation to solve current and future problems. All activities are focused on strengthening a culture of dialouge and democratic values within the society and across borders. 

Targeting a change in the way we perceive and facilitate education, the main focus of activities is set on improving (non-) formal learning by utilizing innovation in technology, methodology and communication. Activities are carried out as unique projects with emphasis on different target groups or topics. Being convinced that learning-by-doing is one of the most efficient ways to improve on old structures, a broad network of partners is exchanging best-practice examples in the fields of education, volunteering and digitalization.

Furthermore, international cooperation projects targeting both workers in NGOs and young people are seen as a valuable way to improve cultural understanding and to collect experiences from stakeholders in various countries. Good access to a network of over 1200 politically active young people from Germany serves as the basis for all projects of the CFSI and partners.
