1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to inform the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee about the Council’s Social Enterprise World Forum legacy project and to request a workshop with the Committee in October to discuss a draft social innovation work programme.  The legacy project will provide 12 months support from the Council to help the Social Enterprise World Forum 2017 (the Forum) realise the benefits of the one-off event.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report follows a Councillor briefing from Akina, the Forum organisers, in April on their progress with organising the Forum; and a May status report from staff to the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee on the Council’s contribution to the Forum. 

2.   Significance

2.1       The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The work outlined in this report aligns with the Council’s draft strategic priorities maximising opportunities to develop a vibrant, prosperous and sustainable 21st Century city and enabling active citizenship and connected communities. There is also alignment with the Strong Communities and Prosperous City community outcomes and the Resilient Greater Christchurch Plan.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee:

1.         Note that the report outlines a social enterprise legacy project which will contribute towards ongoing social and economic benefits from the Social Enterprise World Forum 2017.

2.         Note that a workshop with external socially innovative or entrepreneurial organisations and individuals is proposed for August to provide advice on social innovation opportunities.

3.         Agree to workshop a draft social innovation work programme by November 2017.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       On 27-29 September 2017, the Social Enterprise World Forum will be held in Christchurch, creating a local and global platform from which to profile Christchurch as a city of opportunity

4.2       The Council has a programme of internal and external facing work underway leading up to the Forum.

4.3       This report summarises the legacy project which will leverage the enthusiasm generated by the Forum in the 12 months following the event.

 

5.   Context/Background

Context

5.1       A cross-Council team has been established to provide oversight for the Forum and the legacy programme – made up of the Heads of Community Support, Governance & Partnership; Strategic Policy; Urban Design and Regeneration; Procurement & Contracts; Facilities, Property & Planning; and the Chief Resilience Officer. 

5.2       The Council has a programme of internal and external facing work underway to support the Forum, which includes:

·        Support for the development and co-ordination of a public programme for the Forum’s Transitional Stream, to the value of $40,000

·        Reviewing the procurement policy to reduce barriers for social enterprises to participate in the procurement process

·        Communicating (in-house and to the public via a webpage) the Council’s work in the social enterprise sector

·        Capacity building advice and referrals for social enterprises to increase their market-place profile in the lead-up to the Forum

·        Christchurch Airport and ChristchurchNZ are each negotiating partnership packages with the Forum organisers with a combined value of $50,000.

 

5.3       Work is progressing on these actions in time for the Forum in September as planned.  

Legacy Project Outline

5.4       After the Forum ends on 29 September, there is an opportunity to leverage the community awareness and enthusiasm generated by the event and the cross-Council team have developed this 12 month (October 2017 – October 2018)  action plan:

Outcomes sought

Activity (Oct 2017 – Oct 2018)

Led by (and supported by all engaged Units/Teams)

Active, engaged communities participating in an inclusive economy that shares prosperity broadly

·      Providing brokerage and referral advice for grass-roots social enterprises

·      Mapping the number and maturity of social enterprises in Christchurch City and the level / type of support needed

·      Within currently planned for workshops for/with community groups (which the Council works with) – take the opportunity to raise awareness of the social enterprise concept.

Customer & Community

(Com. Sup., Governance & Partnership)

Champion the reviewed procurement policy and build staff capability to apply the policy

·      Develop an operational implementation plan for the inclusion of social benefit (including social enterprise) initiatives in procurement projects and create and implement a social procurement education programme to build capability of staff and suppliers.

Finance & Commercial (Procurement & Contracts)

Demonstrate regional  leadership and partnership building

·     Offer to facilitate workshop/s - to encourage the development of a collaborative approach to social procurement/social value with our Greater Christchurch partners (and others, such as other large public organisations and private companies).

·      Undertake innovation-readiness interviews with Council staff AND hold a workshop with external socially innovative or entrepreneurial organisations and individuals to help provide foundational evidence for whether the Council could adopt a social innovation programme (or not)

·      Dependent on information gathered in the innovation-readiness project, develop a  draft Social Innovation Programme and integrate social enterprise as a key component of the Programme

Strategy & Transformation

(Resilient City Office, Policy Team, Urban Design and Regeneration)

 

5.5       Please note that an innovation-readiness workshop with external organisations (or individuals) is proposed for August.  The Committee may have suggestions of external groups to invite.  The results of the workshop will be compiled into a summary report to help develop an indicative social innovation programme.

5.6       The immediate costs associated with this legacy project will be absorbed within existing budgets.  Any unexpected project costs, along with any new or revised policy (e.g. the procurement policy), will be covered in separate work streams and Council reports.

The wider Social Innovation work programme

5.7       In itself, social enterprise is an example of social innovation.  Social innovation can be described as a process that engages citizens in designing new or better solutions to complex social challenges.

5.8       There is a strong alignment between social innovation and the Council’s strategic priority to enable active citizenship and connected communities as well as the key operating principles of equity, innovation, wellbeing and resilience. 

5.9       Currently, social innovation projects are being undertaken by different teams and units in different Groups across the Council and there is an opportunity to co-ordinate these projects into a loose or virtual social innovation programme to ensure intentional learning; dissemination of success widely across the Council; and the scale-up of successful projects. This would build staff capability to deliver so that social innovation becomes embedded successfully into business-as-usual.   

5.10    Staff are requesting a workshop with the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee by November 2017 to discuss the directions and principles of a draft three year social innovation work programme.
