Social Innovation Is Us

10 Carden :“Social innovation refers to the creation, development, adoption, and integration of new concepts and practices that put people and the planet first. Social Innovations resolve existing social, cultural, economic, and environmental challenges. Some social innovations are systems-changing – they permanently alter the perceptions, behaviours, and structures that previously gave rise to these challenges.”

Social Innovation Toronto: “At CSI, we work every day to change the world to one that is more equitable. We aspire to model the world we want to see. In order to do that, we need to examine how we are perpetuating this inequality, and how we can instead dismantle it within our community and spaces. Turning our eyes both inward and outward, we will continue to identify what systems are not working, and how we can work together to create the vision we have for a just and equitable society. This means determining where we fall short, and ensuring we have solid policies to address these shortcomings.”
