  • Today we plant a small seed that will hopefully grow into something big
  • How we do that follows the essential characteristics of any evolution – first we need to creative options, more and better;then we need ways to determine what works; then we need methods for growth. In our social space this is missing – insufficient investment in creativity; insufficient tools and metrics to determine what works; and poor systems for growth
  • Europe has the ideas, the creativity, the will: but we need to get better at orchestrating, amplifying and mobilising, and inject into Europe the spirit of SI which is made up of practitioners who move fast into action, just to it
  • This initiative will connect some of the most living things in Europe – our social creativity and help it to achieve the greatest impact
