Welcome letter

Doing good and Doing Well Conference, 25 th and 26 th february 2011

Dear Delegate,

We are proud to welcome you to the 8th edition of Doing Good and Doing Well Conference at IESE Business

School Barcelona, where we have another impressive line-up of events, building on from a memorable conference

last year.

Responsible business – business of being responsible – concerns every individual playing his part of a global

citizen, whether in a corporate, government or non-government organisation. Thus we are all contributing to

“The New Bottom Line,” which is the theme of DGDW 2011. An initiative led by IESE students, DGDW has

come a long way in providing a platform for an exchange of ideas to foster learning about responsible business

and development of future responsible leaders. Our goal is to reach out to more people to spread awareness by

building partnerships, and every year we receive more and more support to help us achieve this.

This year, there are interesting keynote speeches by prominent personalities from various sectors including social

entrepreneurship, CSR, sustainability research and non-profit. We are presenting 36 exciting panel discussions

featuring more than 130 speakers in fields ranging from Venture Philanthropy Technological Innovation, Social

Challenges and more. The workshops on social entrepreneurship and clean-tech feature entrepreneur candidates

travelling from all over the world to gain insights from and networking opportunities with renowned mentors and

potential investors. We also have new events including a SEW Case Competition supported by Mckinsey, and a

film and photo exposition sponsored by National Geographic Ventures to add more dimensions to DGDW.

We hope you enjoy this experience and take back with you more ideas towards building a more responsible world

where everyone is doing good and doing well.

Warm Regards,

Richa Pathak Ana Jeronimo

panel Tracks

Track 1 – Corporate Social responsibility and beyond:

The Challenges of the Corporate World

The corporate world has changed: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the new bottom line. In short, having

sustainable practices and ethical behaviors is the minimum requirement for the large corporations and their

management. But how do these new expectations translate in corporate daily activities? Attending to the topics

of this track you, together with our panelists, will question some of the so called “grey areas”: differences in CSR

practices across regions, the definition (if there is any) of what is ethics in business, and the MBA’s responsibility

in all these discussions. Participating in the topics of this track you will have access to what experts guess will be

the future of sustainability and you will be able to understand what type of profile companies seek for their CSR

department. Finally, using a more practical approach, we will show you useful examples of corporations answering

to some of society’s demands of a better corporate world through the inclusion of people with disabilities and fostering

better work life balance of their employees.

a) The Future of Sustainability

b) The Ultimate Balancing Act: Managing Career, Family and Personal Life

c) How Do the CSR Strategies of Large Corporations Differ Across Regions and Countries?

d) Inclusión Laboral y Social de Personas con Discapacidades (Panel in Spanish)

e) What it means to Pursue a Career in CSR?

f) The Approach of Social Responsibility within Business Schools

Track 2 – The importance of Capital for fostering Development

We all know that capital is the engine that moves markets and businesses. And while financial institutions have

spent most of their time in the news under negative headlines, in this track, we will discuss what kinds of positive

impact these institutions can have on social change. In particular, we will look deeply into the following topics: fostering

savings conscious by micro-deposit; supporting key sectors in emerging economies, using the development

bank model; fostering employment growth in emerging economies by supporting small and medium enterprises.

Beyond these topics, our panelist will guide us through the new language this industry is using, educating us on

Impact Investing, Venture Philanthropy, and Ethical Banking.

a) What are the Challenges of Micro-Savings?

b) Impact Investing - The Panacea for Solving Global Challenges?

c) The Future of Ethical Banking: A Fashionable Trend, or a New, Sustainable Way of Doing Business?

d) Development Banks and Their Role in Promoting Private Sector-Led Growth

e) The Challenge for SMEs in Emerging Economies of Accessing Credit

f) Venture Philanthropy - The Benefits and Challenges of New Ways of Funding in Social Sectors

g) Non-Profit Fundraising in the Credit Crisis Environment: A New Paradigm

Track 3 – Social entrepreneurship: empowering Change

Because social enterprises also look for some type of financial return, they cannot be considered part of the social

sector. Social entrepreneurship is not a normal private initiative as well, because the aim of these organizations

is to address some of the world’s social and environmental issues. If not even academics reach an agreement of

what is social entrepreneurship, we need to try to understand the success factors of these companies and how

they compete in the market by ourselves. How do they attract talent given salary levels can be a challenge when

profit is not the sole bottom line? How is the old model of the NGO adapting to these new social enterprises? Besides

trying to find an answer to these questions, we will have access to many examples of social enterprises,

whose successes will be discussed under a regional umbrella: Latin America; a sector-focused umbrella: tourism;

and a structural umbrella: the necessity of support institutions, such as Endeavor or TechnoServe to help foster


a) Success Factors for Social Enterprises: What Difference Do They Make When Competing in the Marketplace?

b) The Role of Entrepreneurship in Creating Sustainable Social Change: Challenges and Success Stories in Latin


c) Evaluating the Institutions that Foster Social Entrepreneurship

d) Talent Attraction in the Social Sector

e) Women’s Role in Delivering Social Change: Are Women Better Social Entrepreneurs?

f) El modelo Tradicional de ONG y Fundaciones: Qué Ha Cambiado con el Aparecimiento de las Empresas Sociales?

(Panel in Spanish)

g) Responsible Tourism: The Changing Legacy and Consequences of Tourism

Track 4 – innovation and Technology as an answer to

poverty alleviation

Innovation pushes industries beyond their own frontiers of efficiency. But what has been its role in social and environmental

development? Technology is allowing mankind to expand its horizons towards greener energy and shift

away from heavy energy consumption. New innovative products and processes are bringing health care to people

that before had no access to it. Banks and telecommunications companies, thinking beyond traditional service

models, are using technology to substantially increase banking services penetration. Cutting edge innovations in

the construction and transportations sectors are allowing our cities became greener. Our speakers will dive more

deeply into all of these areas to help us understand how technology and innovation is driving social change.

a) Approaching Healthcare Challenges in Developing Countries through Innovative Business Models and Disruptive


b) Technology’s Role in Increasing Accessibility to Banking Services in Developing Nations

c) Responsible Urbanization: Can New Business Models Save the Urban Landscape?

d) Technological Innovation Driving Reduction in Energy Consumption and Emissions

e) Smart Grid and More: Transforming the Energy Value Chain

Panel Descriptions

Track 5 – prominent Challenges and opportunities in

Social Development

Hunger, conflicts, poverty, children being denied their basic rights: how is society addressing these long-standing

problems of humanity? While we still haven’t been able to completely solve these issues, there has been important

progress in the right direction. In this track we will debate a diverse selection of topics that revolve around this

progress, including sustainable agriculture, economic peace and the challenges faced by an aging society. We will

also discuss topics related to practical examples of initiatives that used to bring a new world of opportunities to unprivileged

people and try to understand what is the role of sports and vocational training to drive social change.

a) Can Investments in Agriculture be Profitable and Ensure Positive Social Impact?

b) Economic Incentives and the Role of the Private Sector: Is it Sufficient for Achieving a Long-term Sustainable


c) Football: a Global Sport and a Powerful Tool to Drive Social Change

d) Investment in Large Sport Events: Are There Better Uses of These Enormous Funds that could Guarantee

Longer-term Benefits to Country’s Citizens?

e) Is Old the New Young? How to approach the challenge of an elderly society?

f) GDP vs. HDI: the Right Measure of Human Welfare

Track 6 – addressing the Challenges at the bottom of the pyramid

Almost half of the world lives under the poverty line. Depending on the definition that one uses to define poverty

line, this number can reach almost 80% of human population. If this number does not convince corporations and

society to look to the bottom of the pyramid, what will? The fact is that large corporations can no longer deny this

big chunk of the population, and nor can society. In this track will look at how to address current issues being

faced in Africa, how to foster a more equilibrate power relation with fair trade, how to create incentives for doing

research for the cure of the diseases of the BoP and how to design product for the BoP.

a) What Does it Take to Replicate the Asian Economic Miracle in Africa? Doing business on the “Forgotten Continent”

b) How Do Companies Formulate Strategies to Approach Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP)?

c) Neglected Tropical Diseases: an Innovative Business Model to Eradicate Them

d) Fair Trade: A Philanthropic Initiative that is Becoming a Private, Sustainable and Profitable Business

e) Developing Relevant Innovations, Products and Services that Target the Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP), the 4

Billion People Who Live on Less Than $2.5 Dollars/Day

10 Year Check-point for Social entrepreneurship: What have We learned?

Pamela Hartigan

Director of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University’s Said Business School and Volans Founding

Partner and Non Executive Director

It has been ten years since social entrepreneurship emerged on the global scene as a systems’ changing movement.

Since then, the need to scale for wide impact has been at the top of the agenda in every gathering – large or small - of

social entrepreneurs. And more recently, there is growing excitement about “social investing”. Realistically, what can

we expect over the coming 5 years for social entrepreneurship, and where do MBAs fit into this emerging panorama?

Keynote Speech 2 – friday, february 25

a new Capitalism for a new Society. responsible businesses. responsible Citizens.

The end of Myths.

Lord Michael Hastings

KPMG’s Global Head of Citizenship and Diversity

Understand the new thinking in corporate life and address the personal challenge implied whilst increasingly demanding

more values based impact from business leaders. It’s time to stop bashing business for the economic pressures of

2011. A citizens’ partnership is the only way forward. Who is ready to trust?

Keynote Speech 3 – Saturday, february 26

from Consumerism to Creativity: Transitioning to a high Satisfaction, low-impact economy.

Juliet Schor

Professor of Sociology at Boston College and co-founder and co-chair of the Board of the Center for a New American


In recent years, the US consumer-led economy with has been shown to be ecologically and financially unsustainable.

Furthermore, its collapse has led to widespread unemployment, continued inability to tackle greenhouse gas emissions,

and a rudderless economic policy. In this talk Juliet Schor will outline a new way forward which focuses on reducing

working hours, lightening ecological footprint, supporting small, eco-friendly businesses, and enhancing creativity and

innovation at a local level. She calls this new model Plenitude, to emphasize its ability to create wealth, well-being, and a

sustainable future.

new alliances for Change. The next Step for Social entrepreneurs.

Felix Oldenburg

New alliances for change. The next step for social entrepreneurs” - Social entrepreneurship has come of age since

Ashoka founded the field 30 years ago, but only recently do we see a landscape emerging beyond the usual set of

anglo-american support organizations, for example in continental Europe. In this landscape, everyone can be a changemaker,

and there are new roles for foundations, investors, corporations, governments ... and MBA graduates.

national geographic: an organization Created with environmental awareness as its Core:

More than a Mere Code of Conduct

Maurice van Sabben

President of National Geographic Television International and National Geographic Ventures International

Corporate Social Responsibility is a part of the new bottom line and serious corporations understand it means going

beyond the simple process of ticking the “best CSR practices” box. Long before the “social enterprise” concept was

forged, an organization known as National Geographic was created with environmental awareness as its purpose, not as

a means to an end. How can other organizations take from the “CSR in the blood” example that National Geographic

has set? What does it mean to have a true mission for change as a core fundamental within business practices?

The ultimate balancing act: Managing Career, family and personal life

One of the key challenges we face throughout our professional lives is how to achieve and maintain the

so-called “healthy” balance between our careers, family and personal time. As most of us have already

experienced, our time and energy become increasingly scarce resources that must be allocated wisely in

order to lead happy, healthy lives. To this end, we are sometimes led to make sacrifices and choices which

consequences shape the direction of our lives. Although the answer is not a one-size-fits-all approach,

this continual pursuit of balance is race and gender-blind as it affects all of us as we strive to excel in all

aspects of our lives. The goal of this panel is to discuss the realities of these challenges both on a general

and daily level and how to better address them. Our panelists are well-regarded professionals who have

managed to achieve a balanced life that they are happy with; but not without their share of sacrifices and

trade-offs. They will share their insights with us so that we can learn from their experience and hopefully

emerge with a broader perspective and a practical approach to successfully manage work, family and personal

The approach to Social responsibility within business Schools

Business schools have been criticized for their role in creating a tribe of money hungry and irresponsible

individuals with little regard for Social Responsibility (SR). These feelings have echoed throughout the media,

especially after the financial crisis. Business schools have reacted by implementing Hippocratic oaths

for MBAs, employing more ethics driven courses and investing in PR to show involvement of their students

in various not for profit causes. Are business schools doing enough to ensure that their students internalize

concepts of social responsibility? Is the availability and frequency of ethical classes something that companies

consider before recruiting in MBA programs? Are SR and profitability complementary or mutually

exclusive? Join us in a lively discussion to determine whether business schools should focus more on educating

their students on SR for the benefit of society at large, or whether the media is being too idealistic in

trying to find a home for SR within business schools.

This panel will discuss the current situation and the future challenges of the micro-savings industry. After

decades of expanding from micro-credits to a more general micro-finance industry, some people believe

that it is time for the micro-savings to step forward. Nevertheless, challenges such as high operational

costs, low population density or local regulation pose formidable barriers to this service, on the other hand

considered basic in advanced economies. Both country and company specific examples, as well as relevant

impact investing – The panacea for Solving global Challenges?

Monies dedicated to impact investing are forecast to increase from $50 billion today to over $500 billion

in the next decade (Monitor Institute, 2009) as people look for solutions to social and environmental problems

beyond those that can be provided by traditional philanthropy. Impact investors have captured the

minds and hearts of many given their “triple bottom line” approach of actively placing capital in businesses

whose mission solves particular social and environmental issues while earning a profit. But is this achievable?

What trade-off must an impact investor make to achieve these lofty goals? Can this industry move

from the periphery to the mainstream and what challenges must it overcome to do so?

The future of ethical banking: a fashionable Trend, or a new, Sustainable Way of Doing business?

What is ethical banking? Is it just a warm-and-fuzzy concept, or a holistic, sustainable way of doing business?

Is it merely a fashionable trend that will pass, or a part of a larger societal movement toward more

social and environmental responsibility in the financial sector that is here to stay? Can profitability and

ethical standards coexist? Why did it take financial institutions so long to begin adopting socially and environmentally

responsible standards? Why are they doing it now? What is the government’s role in it? The

panel will explore this juvenile industry, including its trends, challenges and opportunities going forward.

It will examine what sets ethical banks apart from conventional banks and the different models that exist

within the ethical banking sector, while assessing their advantages and potential shortcomings.

panel speaker count has extensive development experience and will provide us with first-hand insight into

such questions as: How can International Finance Institutions (World Bank-IFC, IADB-IIC, EIB, EBRD,

ADB, AfDB, etc.) more effectively promote private sector growth? What strategies should they adopt to

enable the private sector to deliver goods and services and create job opportunities in the process? What

Venture philanthropy – The benefits and Challenges of new Ways of funding in Social Sectors

In the past five or ten years, players like venture philanthropists have joined existing social sectors and applied

their private equity / venture capital models for social purpose organizations and companies. The

model includes loans, guarantees, mezzanine finance (also known as quasi-equity), equity and convertible

grants, and this methodology is used across sectors including health services, childcare, education and

housing. But how is venture philanthropy different from existing grant funding and what are the benefits

and challenges associated with it? Investors and social enterprises meet in the panel and discuss these issues

from their experiences.

Social Enterprises are proving their potential to become powerful change agents in many environments.

As this concept spreads around the world, creativity flourishes to address social issues through innovative

models. Many of the challenges they face are the same as those of more traditional players but, comparatively,

when do social enterprises carry a burden and when do they have a head start? What are the unique

strengths and weakness of these organizations? Are there social enterprise friendly and non-friendly sectors

The role of entrepreneurship in Creating Sustainable Social Change: Challenges and Success

Stories in latin america

Social entrepreneurs are drivers of innovation who, combining their persistence and creativity, attempt to

bring forth ideas that aim to address social problems. Through the expert commentary of social entrepreneurs

as well as organizations with vast experience supporting the operations and financing of social entrepreneurs,

this panel seeks to shed clarity on the challenges that social entrepreneurs face in running their

ventures, and how their success can come hand in hand with sustainability. The discussion, which will

center on real world examples with a specific focus on Latin America, will try to identify whether there are

any common elements that are shared in the stories of successful social entrepreneurs.

a growing recognition that one of the methods to tackle the world’s major development challenges

is through entrepreneurial means. This acknowledgement has given rise to an ever-increasing number

of different institutions dedicated to fostering social entrepreneurship. This panel will dig deep into the effectiveness,

limitations, and future trends within this sector. It will examine the various strategies pursued

through different institutional models as well as the first hand experience of social entrepreneurs across

business-driven approaches to achieve their social impact objectives and MBA skills are seen as valuable

and much needed. This panel will tackle how MBAs can pursue careers that combine business skills and

create social value. Panellists will discuss their motivations for their career paths, the strengths, challenges,

opportunities and major functional areas of their work. They will also provide advice for students seeking to

a career in the sector.

responsible Tourism: The Changing legacy and Consequences of Tourism

While tourism is highly sensitive to economic factors and linked to major industries, tourists are becoming

more conscientious and concerned with how their travel affects the communities and world around them.

This is creating growing pressure for players in the industry to be more socially responsible and have a lower

environmental impact. We will discuss the growing trends of volunteer tourism and social responsibility

approaching healthcare Challenges in Developing Countries through innovative business Models

and Disruptive Technologies

In this day and age, developing economies are showing more and more convergence to the developed

world as regards to the diseases that they are facing. Non-communicable diseases are becoming more

common in the developing world. In response, technology and Healthcare companies are trying to offer solutions,

whether by using new innovative technologies or by using disruptive ones. However, challenges in

developing countries are far different than in developed countries, and because of that, these companies

need to innovate - either on the technology side or the business model side- in order to succeed.

In this panel, we aim to discuss how healthcare companies and entrepreneurs use their different business

models in order to respond to the healthcare problems in developing countries. Be it an innovative or a disruptive

technology, we aim to understand the challenges and difficulties in implementing a technology in

different regions in the world and what have companies done and are doing to overcome these challenges.

In hard to reach rural areas, inhabitants’ access to banking tends to be extraordinarily costly, insecure

and time consuming. Difficulties such as these are detrimental to economic development. Advances in

technological solutions have made it easier to reach these areas and have positively impacted the lives of

numerous individuals, families and societies.

This panel will highlight the current technologies and methods that have expanded the access to financial

services while drawing attention to the difficulties and challenges faced. It will evaluate several issues, including

if the benefits outweigh the costs and if these services are easily adopted by the customers. It will

also examine alternatives such as: mobile payment, cards, and the internet.

prominent Challenges and opportunities in Social Development

Code: 5.a

Can investments in agriculture be profitable and ensure positive Social impact?

With world population projected to reach 9 billion by 2050, food production will need to increase by 70%,

according to FAO estimates. A production increase of this magnitude will require the developing world

alone to invest over $200 billion per year in agriculture till 2050. The idea of this panel is to discuss the

future of investments in agriculture and the problems that we will face in ensuring positive impact of these

investments. Also there is a general impression that investments in agriculture are not profitable enough

to attract attentions of investors, especially in developing countries. However, agriculture has the potential

to be tremendously profitable business and to yield positive impact for such countries. We will also try to

spend some time to shed some light on agricultural investments as a tool for poverty alleviation.

economic incentives and the role of the private Sector: is it Sufficient for achieving a

long-term Sustainable peace?

What is economic peace? Different scholars, academics and politicians have claimed that peace in a conflict

zone can be achieved through economic pressure and economic improvement of nations living in

conflict. These thinkers claim that the better the economic situation and the stronger the interdependence

of the groups engaged in conflict, the less incentive they have to engage in war. In this situation both sides

would compromise to achieve a peace agreement amongst themselves. However, once this interdependence

is broken, it is not unlikely that the peace will be kept.

In this panel, we would like to discuss the notion of economic peace and questions that derive by thinking

about such peace; mainly, does the economic status of people in a political conflict matter when the time

comes to negotiate peace? Can economic improvement of both or either sides in a conflict zone result in

a self-sustained, long-term peace between people? Or, is it necessary to have a mutual interest in the economic

offering of one side to the other? Finally, what role does the private sector have in achieving such

peace? Is it only the responsibility of the government to achieve and promote it?

football: a global Sport and a powerful Tool to Drive Social Change

Football is the most popular sport in the world. 270 million people - or four per cent of the world’s population

– male and female players, referees and officials are actively involved in the Game, according to FIFA. With its

global appeal, football is much more than a sport. It is a versatile medium to foster communication, unity, social

change and just play. It has become a vital instrument for hundreds of social development programs run by nongovernmental

and community based organizations all around the world. These programs are providing children

and young people with valuable tools that make a difference to their lives and, by addressing the most pressing

issues in each community, they are contributing to positive social change on a global scale. Our panelists will

Every couple of years, huge investments are made to host large sporting events around the world. Recent

buzz around hosting the Olympics in China, the World Cup in South Africa and all the uncertainty about

the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro highlights the benefits that these emerging countries receive from the increased

exposure and tourism revenues as a result of these events. But, are these investments well-placed

gDp vs. hDi: the right Measure of human Welfare

This panel will discuss the challenges of measuring the impact of economic policies and business activity

on development. It is widely accepted that, although there is a strong correlation between GDP and quality

of life, this indicator has some major drawbacks and does not consider aspects such as income distribution,

the value of leisure or natural resource depletion. Nevertheless, to date, no substitute has been found

with the potential to overtake GDP’s role as the main indicator of economic wealth at macroeconomic level.

Defining what “human welfare” means and quantifying intangible indicators are only a few examples of

the formidable challenge the measuring of human wealth poses. Measuring the social impact of financial

investments is also a challenge most development banks, philanthropic funds, MFIs and other financial

institutions face when evaluating potential targets for their project financing. Both country and company

specific examples, as well as relevant statistical data, are encouraged.

What Does it Take to replicate the asian economic Miracle in africa? Doing business on the “forgotten Continent”

In the last 30 years, Asia, especially China, India and South-East Asia, has experienced strong economic

growth, triggered by sound economic policies, adoption of a fundamentally open economy, investment in

infrastructure, explosion of FDI and a well educated population. Some countries in Africa are trying to replicate

the Asian model to boost economic development, attract FDI and, ultimately, raise its population out

of poverty. Nevertheless, there are fundamental differences between both regions (e.g. social and political

stability, access to natural resources, population) and the successful path to long-term growth might differ

significantly. This panel will discuss these differences and what policy-makers, business managers and investors

should consider when trying to emulate the Asian miracle in the African continent.

how Do Companies formulate Strategies to approach bottom of the pyramid (bop)?

The BOP represents a vast, unexploited, multitrillion-dollar marketplace. For companies struggling with

maturing markets, floundering business models, and serious questions about who their customers of the

future will be, the BoP is the important market to crack. On the other hand there are companies who created

with tapping this segment in mind. How do their strategies differ and is one of the approaches more

successful then the other?

In this panel you will be able to hear how companies decide their strategy on approaching BOP. What are

the drivers of the companies that are approaching the lower income segment? What are the major opportunities

and challenges? Is the BoP market a must for multi-nationals? What should companies take into

The Social Entrepreneurship Workshop has been created to address the evolving world of social entrepreneurship

– a term that is tweaked in different contexts – essentially covering organizations that exhibit

unique business models, which contribute to profitably solving social or environmental needs not addressed

by traditional business or government activities.

Creative business models demonstrate new ways of doing business that have important implications for the

new generation of business leaders – inclusive, equitable value chains, complex ecosystems of private and

public partnerships and profitable businesses – that solve tenacious social and environmental problems

with multi-faceted approaches. While some may argue this ‘niche’ has been filled by NGOs and social initiatives

for decades, we argue that now more than ever and in new and different ways, social enterprise is

going ‘mass market’.

Join us for some of the most captivating and inspiring stories of how business can change the world. The

goals of the workshop are threefold:

• Create awareness among conference participants on how profitable business can lead social

change through a discussion with fascinating social enterprises and their founders.

• Encourage the social entrepreneurship movement among business school students and conference

attendees by offering a forum for the discussion of ideas and connection to resources.

• Facilitate networking between select entrepreneurs, potential financiers, and other interested

stakeholders such as social enterprise incubators and grant-giving bodies.

Doing Good and Doing Well 2011 supports the following projects and social enterprises.


The speakers of our conference are invited to a Gala Dinner on Friday at the Cosmo Caixa Science Museum. All

the great food that they will taste is prepared and served by Fundació Futur, a social enterprise whose mission

is the social integration of marginalized people. Check below to see why we have chosen Futur as our catering


When Futur decided to expand to the catering sector in 2001, they followed the three Futur tenets of ecological

sustainability, fair trade and labor integration. Their catering service is committed to responsible consumption

and is in line with the principles of the Slow Food movement, which emphasizes local food traditions and raises

awareness of the impact of our food choices on the rest of the world. They use locally grown and organic products,

biodegradable supplies and optimal waste management systems. They also adhere to safety and training protocols

for employees as well as customers.

la fageda

During the coffee breaks at our conference you can enjoy the best yogurt in the world (at least that’s what we

think!). These products were kindly ceded to us by La Fageda, a local producer. Check below to see why the

DGDW team would like to promote La Fageda and why we suggest that you also support them by buying their

products whenever you are in Cataluña. Further, you can know more about the project by talking to Josep

Corbinos, who is one of the speakers at our conference.

La Fageda is a non for profit social cooperative from Cataluña that was as its main objective to integrate in the

workforce people from the local community (la Garrotxa) that have mental disabilities or severe mental illness.

The cooperative embraces 210 people, including users and professionals. The productive activities are mainly

agriculture and are developed at “la fageda d’en Jordà”, a farm and the social headquarter of this beautiful

project. The activities related to the assistance of the users include Occupational Therapy Service, special

apartments for the workers that need assistance and don’t have a home, and leisure activities to improve the life

quality of the users.

ireS – institut de reinserció Social

projects Supported by DgDW 2011

In the hall just outside of Aula Magna you will see panels displaying stories of some of the people whose lives IReS

helped transform. There is more information below about this serious social project and if you want to explore

more you can visit their website (http://www.apadrinafuturs.com/) and/or talk to Motserrat Tohà i Solé, also a

speaker at our conference.

IReS is a private foundation, set-up in 1969, that provides social care, psychological and educational facilities to

marginalized groups of people who are at risk of social or economic difficulties including Family Violence, Gender

and Social Inclusion, and Social Action in the judicial system. They study emerging social needs allowing them to

introduce solutions, to assess the impact of new proposals and to contribute to new knowledge creation. Through

their work, they help make visible the problems and social needs of the people they serve.
