About the Book Social Innovation Generation
In the book Social Innovation Generation, we lay bare what our mission meant to us, why it mattered, what we learned, where we stumbled and our insights into how social innovation happens. This is our way of paying forward our insights, cultivated in collaboration with dozens of generous partners over the years.
As a partnership, we collectively sought to exemplify our logo—the dandelion—helping to seed and nurture the field of social innovation. Sharing our decade-long journey is our final step. With a final deep breath, we blow the remaining seeds as far afield as possible to nurture the landscape supporting social innovators across Canada and around the world.
