Westley (2008) definition is the one the remined me of my first thoughts when asked what social innovation was. I do think all of the definitions explain what social innovation is just in their own unique way.

Amarius Barnes

I think that the "Social Innovation Definitions" are 100% correct because when watching the first video about Social Innovation is addresses the issues described in that video. I can see that the Social Innovation movement is about making those necessary changes to better the world instead of adding more harm essentially. I look at this as a positive thing! Thanks for reading :)

After watching this assignment I was able to understand the different types of meanings beyond just the basic definition. The thing that will continuously be hard for everyone is the main concept on what you think it means to you can be totally different to someone else.

After viewing this video I now understand that social innovations can be defined in different ways by different individuals. The main lesson of social innovations is trying to accommodate the needs of people and the environment around them.

Katelyn Sifford
Mar 14, 2022

All of these definitions have a common theme. Social is a big indicator of this type of innovation as all of the products, systems, and activities provided through social innovation are for a social need that is currently unmet or is not at its best. The social aspect makes it more public and less of an individual credit for one person to gain. Social can mean for many people, for many reasons whether they are the ones being helped or the helpers. Having a community of entrepreneurs is astoundingly efficient and can make these ideas and processes run a lot smoother. Never underestimate the power of collaboration.

Allie Perdue

This helps to show the different definitions of social innovation and why others might be impacted by it differently. I think it's interesting that some include things like "unmet needs" and others include wording like services or intractable problem. It is definitely interesting to me to see all the different definitions and ways people look at social change and innovation.

Reading this article helped me to understand the different facets of social innovation and what it truly is. The main gist of this article is that social innovation has one goal and that is to enact change.

After looking at this I understand that social innovations can be defined in many different ways. Social innovations is mainly trying to meet the needs of a person or environment but by using different solutions.

After reading the article, I can understand the different ways to define social innovation. Yet, overall, social innovation can be broken down into problem-solving and change.

Social innovations are new social practices that aim to meet social needs in a better way than the existing solutions, resulting from - for example - working conditions, education, community development, or health.

Mar 25, 2021

After reading this article I believe that everything that was said informs the reader of what social innovation can look like. One of the things that stood out to me is that it states that innovations are based on our capacity and what we can do to organize social and financial resources to impact in a big way.

Emily Jackson

Only the last quote is slightly different from the rest. In the final one Young discusses the capacity of making an impact rather then implementing new ideas.

Silvana Carnicero
Jan 16, 2021

Most definitions have in common the idea of putting into practice a new idea to solve an existing problem and obtain a change for the better.
I don't think that social innovation is on the opposite side of technological innovation. I believe that both should go together for a real improvement in today's world.

Brenda Sherry

I really liked reading a variety of definitions of social innovation. It caused me to reflect on the fact that many of the 'improvements' could be subjective depending on who is part of the creation of the innovation. It brings to mind the thinking about the trickle-down effects of innovation...who is impacted and how?
