Abstract

It would neither be appropriate nor reasonable to apply conventional thinking to new and increasingly complex social issues. Creative thinking and innovation, more often associated with arts and technology, can bring great value to the social sector. Best of all, it can, all at once, address public, private and social sector challenges. Speaking at the Lien Centre for Social Innovation's Social iCon 2011 conference, Geoff Mulgan, chief executive of UK's National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, shared insights on social innovation can create win-win solutions.
