In recent years, great interest has grown about a variety of processes referred to as “labs.”

Simply put, labs are rigorous meetings of diverse groups of people who seek breakthrough solutions to serious problems. The Social Innovation Generation (SiG) team is working on cultivating lab processes, recognizing their potential to affect positive social change.

A Social Innovation Lab methodology is in development, merging existing lab elements with new ones specific to social innovation. The proposed SI Lab will focus on broad system change to address the root causes of complex social and ecological problems.

Come and hear Frances Westley, best-selling co-author of Getting to Maybe: How the World is Changed, share her insights on this emerging field of work.
