After reading through countless websites, I'm so pleasantly surprised at how much is out there regarding social innovation! It is so inspiring to see so many others being involved - whether it's locally, nationally, or globally.
I have chosen to follow Ashoka more closely. Ashoka chooses 'fellows' to be out in the world and implement the social innovation ideas. With 2,000 fellows working in 60+ countries, there is a lot of activity in this group. They are tackling many different social issues at once.
In their summary, they talk about how citizen groups have grown and the development of these groups' interest in making changes and they compare it to growth of businesses. Interesting reading and clearly much more to learn about them
I have added them to my Facebook as well as signed up for their 2 newsletters that will come to my email and allow to me to read more on what they're currently doing and understand better how they work.
Looking forward to seeing how one group works to make change happen!
