A Challenge to Conventional Wisdom in Social Change

Classes in social innovation, social entrepreneurship and design thinking have become increasingly popular in recent years. On the one hand, this might be seen as a good thing. After all, the world needs as many smart, engaged citizens as it can get, particularly when you consider the multitude of challenges we face as a planet. But does a career in social change really begin in the classroom, or out in the real world? How much social change is planned, and how much accidental? And which approach tends to lead to the most meaningful, lasting or impactful solutions? 

In this webinar, Ken Banks will share unexpected stories of social innovation, and challenge conventional thinking around how we might best prepare and plan for meaningful change.
