Discovery Dialogue


Our communities are faced with complex social and environmental challenges including poverty, climate change, access to clean water, healthcare, education, and more.  Social Innovation seeks to address challenges by putting people and planet first, working across private, public, and non-profit sectors in an exchange of ideas and values, integrating private capital with public and charitable support. Increasingly, colleges and universities, including UNH, are offering programs on social innovation and/or social entrepreneurship. More and more businesses are being developed with a mission for public good.  What do you think?  Can Social Innovation create sustainable solutions? Can business be a powerful force for good? What is our role as current and future agents of change?  Ideas for Good: A Discovery Dialogue on Social Innovation looks forward to engaging the UNH community in conversation around these questions and more.
