Practitioners and Organizations

Individuals and organizations or initiatives that are working on the front lines of social and environmental change need supports of all kinds, including new ideas, knowledge and specific skill development. Whether you’re starting a new enterprise or looking to increase the impact of a proven innovation strategy, you can access an array of resources here to help you better understand how social systems work and what it takes to address complex problems in the world. If you’re interested in the big challenges our communities face, we encourage you to explore the collection of resources created by the SiG partnership and others.

You might start by looking through the Social Innovation resources and then exploring the critically important and interconnected roles of the Social Entrepreneur and the System Entrepreneur.

A publication that may be of particular interest to practitioners is “On Not Letting a Crisis Go To Waste” by Tim Brodhead.
