Endeavor: The Rise of Social Creatives

March 18, 2012 — 2 Comments

How do we make a difference? How do we live a life that matters?

Deep down we know we should contribute positive change in some way. It’s the how that stumps us. In a world dominated by institutions of power, what can one individual do anyway?

These days, a lot. Empowered by education and technology, today’s change agents are initiating projects of all kinds to create new possibilities and contribute to a better world.

Endeavor, a new multi-touch ebook, showcases ten project types of today’s “social creatives.” Each category features two projects that have made a positive impact. Hear their creators share their stories through inspiring TED and TEDx Talks. Let their examples be an inspiration to you as you try to make a difference yourself.

A forthcoming ebook will guide you step-by-step through the process of creating and improving your social change project and help you develop the core skills of changemaking.

If you have an iPad, download the multitouch version of Endeavor.

I created a Ning community for Fun for A Change, a social innovation competition I’m running in Vancouver and Taiwan.

Fun for a Change is a global competition designed to introduce university students to the fun side of social innovation. Teams compete in using “fun” and game dynamics to bring about positive change. Along the way, they engage one another in fun challenges, learn the most effective ways to shape human behavior, and innovate new solutions.

Fun for a Change was launched at Simon Fraser University in June 2011 and online in July 2011.

I created the website for Social Creatives as an online resource for people to learn the skills of change.

SOCIAL Creatives™ is an online innovation hub designed to help social entrepreneurs master the art of change. It provides a new framework to help people learn and practice social entrepreneurship by focusing on six key best practices. The hub offers toolkits, books, workshops, and competitions to help social innovators achieve greater success and impact.
