Social Innovation in the partner countries GREECE Shedia is the only Greek street magazine and member of the International Network of Street Papers – INSP, www. street-papers. org. As it happens with all street magazines worldwide, Shedia is sold exclusively on the streets of Athens and Thessaloniki (on crowded city spots such as metro stations, central squares etc), by official vendors. Vendors come from socially vulnerable population groups such as homeless people and longterm unemployed and socially excluded fellow citizens experiencing poverty.
Social Innovation in the partner countries GREECE Street paper vendors buy copies of the magazine for 1, 50 euro (at a price of 50% of the cover price) and sell them for 3, 00 euro, keeping the proceeds. "Shedia" not only provides employment opportunities for individuals to earn a minimum decent income, but importantly, to build confidence, their capacity to help themselves, to re-integrate into society and finally to improve their economic and social wellbeing. It is, essentially, a social reintegration process, through which individuals who until yesterday felt "invisible" (their own term), recover their belief that they can and will reach it.
How the island of Tinos trades its garbage GREECE The Greek island of Tinos, in Cyclades, suffers from waste disposal.

Another remarkable case is the handling of the used, cooking oil, that can affect the sewage system when if it goes down the pipes, let alone the rest of the environment. The social enterprise, “Kalloni — Kellia Tinou”, managed in its 4 years of operation to recycle, 74 tons of used, cooking oil, with the support of the island’s residents who volunteered their own waste.

ONCE (Organizacion Nacional de Ciegos Españoles SPAIN ONCE (Organizacion Nacional de Ciegos Españoles –Spanish national organisation for blind people-) enjoys a dual institutional nature: partly public in that, as a corporation, it has been entrusted with certain public functions by the State and partly but predominantly a membershipbased corporation governed by private law. What makes ONCE Foundation so popular compared to other foundations is the way that it is financed. Its main income source is a lottery. Although it must be said that this lottery is run by ONCE instead of ONCE Foundation, therefore the main funding source of ONCE Foundation comes from ONCE lottery tickets. Concretely, the 3% of gross receipts obtained from the sales of the ONCE’s lotteries. This figure represents one out of every three euros that the ONCE dedicates to social services. These tickets, “el cupón”, are sold in very distinctive blue stalls placed on all the streets in every city in Spain and all the sellers are blind.
