Ankara Social Innovation Ecosystem

Ecosystem approach grounds on the interaction between system, mechanisms, organizations and individuals. It makes it easier to realize; accumulations, inadequacies, comprehending the whole, values desired to be strengthened and social formations desired to be converted.Interaction and collaboration networks within the ecosystem need to be strengthened in order for the value generated by an ecosystem actor to go beyond its orbit and become a transformative force at the systems level. In order to do this, it is necessary to understand the roles of different actors in the system and the functions they perform. At the İstasyon, we wanted to share the ecosystem mapping process by focusing on the functions of the actors.
