During our kickoff 2014 Inspiring Action for Social Impact webinar, Indy Johar discussed how to build a community around being open. How do we go from ‘I’ to ‘We’? One to Many? At SiG we have written extensively on collaboration and effective ways to work together for positive social change. We are also particularly interested in ideas around scaling impact. While organic and grassroots movement building is important, accelerating and creating the conditions for broader system change is equally important. We have to find more and better ways to achieve scale.
As we moved through the presentation we discussed the growing Sharing Economy. Indy guided our thinking about this and similar movements – what and when is it time to build – and what should we be ready for in terms of potential challenges or missteps?
