Social innovation is why Echoing Green exists. What is it? We quite like Phills, Deiglmeier & Miller’s definition in Stanford Social Innovation Review:

A novel solution to a social problem that is more effective, efficient, sustainable, or just than existing solutions and for which the value created accrues primarily to society as a whole rather than private individuals.

Since our founding twenty-five years ago, social innovation has been the lens through which we think and work. Which is why this moment in time is so very exciting for us. Today, companies, foundations, design firms, investors, and even the White House are joining Echoing Green in championing social innovation as a primary means to solving the world's biggest problems in striking new ways.

The feed below features our latest thinking and activity on social innovation. We encourage you to add your voice to the conversation.
