The School of Social Innovation offers theoretical and practical training in collective action and social innovation in a local community context. More specifically, the School focuses on knowledge exchange that furthers the emergence of new organizational models, social practices, and civic engagement methods designed to reduce various forms of social oppression and inequality, including poverty. By ‘social innovation’ we mean not only social entrepreneurship and collective enterprise, but the entire network of initiatives, movements and experiments that arise in response to community needs, and that promote justice, democracy and social change.
