Community of Practicing Innovators

Practicing innovators in (Dutch) NGOs share inspiration and solve issues together

Share this event

The Spindle facilitates a community of innovators in development. Members hold an ex- or implicit innovation role within a Dutch NGO. The community meets every two months, in which they discuss their professional issues around innovation within development cooperation. Chatham House Rules apply.

The community of practice is a group of innovation-minded participants. They either hold a position as an innovation manager or – officer, or they engrain innovation in their roles as a business developer or programme designer. In every meeting, they exchange inspirational content. Also, they discuss one or more organisational cases of one of the participants. More information.

The next session is scheduled for the 28th of January at Partos Office (Ellermanstraat 18b, Amsterdam-Duivendrecht)
Matthijs Nederveen from Light for the World and Julio Garcia-Martinez from ZOA are ready to discuss their cases.
