Social Innovation

 

   
  

Social Innovation refers to new ideas that resolve existing social, cultural, economic and environmental challenges. A true social innovation is systems-changing – it permanently alters the perceptions, behaviours, relationships and structures that previously gave rise to these challenges.

Social innovation is both a destination – the resolution of complex social and environmental challenges – and a process – devising new approaches that engage all stakeholders, leveraging their competencies and creativity to design novel solutions.” – Tim Brodhead, 2011
