Anima Social and Cultural Innovation Association


ANIMA ASSOCIATION - Anima Social and Cultural Innovation Association - has been operating in Hungary since 2003. We are an expert organization of change makers and innovators. Our core mission is innovation research and innovation brokerage. The members of our association are animators, who bring groups to life, set them in motion and activate them from within, by identifying with communities.

What we expect from cooperation?

Through the Grassroots Institute initiative, we hope that the networked partners will visualize, research and integrate local, regional and global initiatives, paradigm-shifting social and economic models that rely on scientific technology and the cooperative and organic knowledge of local people. We have entered into this partnership because we envision a Collaborative Society, as a global framework that builds on the value-holarchical networks of organic communities and together we will be able to address the challenges we face.
