Social innovation happens here.
In Saskatoon and across the globe, there is a growing interest in moving beyond the traditional models of charity and service delivery to make the world a better place. How do we address complex social issues that can’t be solved by a silver bullet or a best practice? Social entrepreneurship, crowdfunding, grassroots involvement, asset-based community development – these creative approaches and more have the power to change the playing field and introduce new ways of tackling problems that may otherwise seem insurmountable.
Social Innovation YXE is building a community of people and organizations trying new ways of making a difference in our world. Starting in Winter 2013 we’ll be hosting events open to community members, grassroots organizations, nonprofits, social entrepreneurs, funders, government, businesses, and anyone else interested in social innovation. These events will be opportunities to share ideas and resources, learn from each other, promote new projects, highlight success stories, and more.
