ACTIVITY SERIES is created as a form of community engagement on a monthly bases, within the scope of workshop outcomes or ideas generated during the workshops. This fosters a path of practice, extended dialogue, ownership of action and community involvement. As building radical collaboration, we seek to support other like-minded organizations’ activities within our local community. Activities may take the form of:

  • Film screenings
  • Pecha Kucha evenings
  • Public service

LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS is an area where youth who have developed their own ideas through the INNOCO program can work on locally based social entrepreneurial outcomes with assistance from INNOCO partners and mentors. 

On the other hand youth are given the opportunity to work with youth from other countries to co-design, facilitate and organise a bootcamp as a submissive-time-framed project.
