For our class research assignment Part 1, I analyzed and synthesized ideas on social innovation and social entrepreneurship. What I came out with is
1) How does innovation links in with design thinking
2) The importance of social innovators
3) Distinctions in the “types” of, social innovators, for profit, non-profit, and hybrid, and their level of operation, community, regional, national.
Moreover the 2 case studies I found was Project Masiluleke: Texting and Testing to Fight HIV/AIDS in South Africa and Genovasi, Malaysia where they are cultivating a culture of innovators.
For part 2, the societal challenge in Savannah that I picked was to tackle the drab, gloomy and general unsafe feeling a person gets when walking along some dodgy streets. The real world organization that was tackling this problem is the red-swing project. They:” Anonymously hang red swings in public places inspiring playfulness around the world.”
