Social Innovation 101 Learning Series

January 22, 2020 – May 20, 2020

What does it mean to be socially innovative and create social impact?

In our five-part Social Innovation 101 workshop series, we’ll explore connections between the local economy, community development and social change. Put simply, social innovation is about creating and implementing novel solutions that meet social needs in a better way than existing solutions. Canada’s Universal Health Care, for example, is a social innovation. The purpose of such innovations is to strengthen civil society with the benefits being shared beyond the confines of innovators.

Each workshop features experts who are working on the ground with community economic development and economic justice issues.

Sign up for the whole series (recommended) or individual workshops.
