SI-Drive project at "SIX Summer School 2014" and "Social Frontiers" research workshop in Vancouver

Where can we make resilient and systemic change most effectively? What is at the edge of our social innovation thinking, and how can we scale to the next level of impact? And what is the role of culture in shaping how change happens within society, sectors and ourselves? These and other questions were discussed by more than 150 social innovators, researchers, civil society representatives, politicians and others who joined the 2014 edition of the social innovation summer school hosted by Social Innovation Exchange (SIX), Social Innovation Generation (SiG) and BC Partners for Social Impact.

SI-Canada-Logo-300px_0 Dr. Christoph Kaletka shared the SI-Drive objectives with the group and discussed how the project might help to answer questions like those above. Having in mind the world-wide empirical mapping of social innovation cases to be conducted by the SI-Drive consortium soon, the three-day summer school (May 27-29) provided an abundance of examples worth having a closer look at.

One day later, Christoph Kaletka presented SI-Drive at the "Social Frontiers" research workshop organized by NESTA at which practicioners and scientists discussed the significance of culture for future social innovation research.
