changemaking library

In order to further help you in your changemaker journey, we've curated and categorized a library of resources that we love so that you don't have to go Googling yourself. We hope this saves you some time and energy. We'll be continually adding and updating more resources including social innovation models, "how to's" and the like. 

CONGRATULATIONS!

Congrats to our wonderful friends and collaborators at Solutions Journalism Network. This month they're passing the 10,000 story mark in their indispensable StoryTracker. This is the place to go for stories by journalists from around the world about what's working in social innovation. We curate and use theses stories as mini case studies in our courses. Well done team!
