be.Source aims to bring together the various actors of our social life. Experts, donors, associations and other stakeholders. It is by working together that we will succeed in transforming this challenge into a lasting and forward-looking solution.
The aim of be.Source is to bring together as many actors from society as possible, in order to make progress on issues relating to our ageing population. Debating, imagining, developing, changing and trying to solve this issue. Because this problem affects us all, and it is together that we will resolve it.
That's why be.Source decided to support the "Empowerment of Underprivileged Elderly" Univerisity Chair at KU Leuven-HIVA, under the direction of Professor Tine Van Regenmortel.
The main question this research project attempts to answer : "How can we strengthen elderly people living in precarious circumstances and improve their connection to their surroundings and society so that they can experience a higher quality of life?"
be.Source has decided to co-host a workshop with MIT Solve, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a mission to solve global challenges. Solve is a marketplace for social impact innovation. Solve will develop and facilitate an interactive Challenge Design Workshop focusing on elderly populations. The objective is to identify the most pressing local or organizational priorities with cross-sector leaders across two Challenge themes : "Health Security & Pandemics" and "Digital Inclusion".
"Challenge Design Workshops convene and engage cross-sector leaders from Solve’s global community to identify the most pressing local or organizational priorities and build support for solving them. These highly facilitated convenings help define Solve's Global Challenges, build and engage impactful communities, and inform international policy agendas."
