The ICTs are a tool of social, individual and collective empowering. In Barkeno, we are precisely passionate and very knowledgeable about conceptualizing, designing and developing social innovation strategies for companies and public institutions.
The ICTs are a factor that contributes to eliminating distances, however they can also create them. They may generate hierarchies and crush them. Digital technologies have high potential in democracy and have helped people to get organized, strengthen their capacities and execute spontaneous empowering processes.
At the same time, the organizations, especially those that have the public sector as their main target, are challenged to understand these processes of empowerment and social innovation.
In Barkeno we are specialized in designing strategies of social innovation that can reduce the digital divide and can create better opportunities for some groups and for the citizens in general. We encourage the citizen´s empowerment through the conceptualization of social networks.
We understand social innovation technologies as a kind of social canvas that act at territorial level and have an impact on quality of life and work conditions.
People´s capacity to get organised and empowered is what has boosted Internet. As Margaret Mead said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, Committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”.
Bring us your organisation, company or institution and we will work together to deploy strategies of social innovation.
