Information and communication technologies, digital design and fabrication technologies are valued as driver for developing social innovations. This contribution addresses the question of how to stimulate social innovation skills in makerspace settings. The European H2020 project "DOIT Entrepreneurial skills for young social innovators in an open digital world" investigates the yet “closed box” of how to coach a young person in his/her social innovation learning journey. The consortium is jointly developing the pedagogical concept, co-creation methods and specific training material for a programme that enables young learners and their facilitators to develop social innovation ideas, product- or service-prototypes or new social practises and projects in makerspace settings. The DOIT programme will be trialled and scientifically evaluated by more than 1000 learners in 12 European countries (2017-2020). The contribution describes the theoretical background; the conceptual elements of the DOIT programme and discusses open issues. We invite to join the DOIT network. Information: www.doit-europe.net .
