At Social Innovation New Zealand we are strongly committed to positive social impact through the empowerment of today’s youth as the agents. We recognise that many of today’s rangatahi are aware of and care about the pressing social problems such as climate change, inequality and poverty yet without an idea of how they can contribute to the solutions. Therefore, believing in the power of collective action and the importance of the roles young people play in our community, Social Innovation New Zealand is dedicated to our overarching purpose - accelerating students’ journey of tackling pressing social issues they are passionate about with creative, innovative solutions.
One of the core tenets of Social Innovation New Zealand that we pride ourselves on is our push to combine the passion and values of social impact with the pragmatism and feasibility of the innovations and systems that will allow this impact to be realised. Social innovation is a growing field being embraced by grassroots organisations all the way to large corporates. From social enterprise to to public policy, from technology to activism our mission has been to endeavour to connect students no matter their background to this new paradigm in the hopes that they will go onto create positive social change.
