The Social Capital initiative involves participants from civil society, the private and public sectors, and universities. As it evolves it will include a blend of local, national and international organisations — both large and small — and both for-profit and non-profit. Some will be frontline organisations, others may be policy-, research- or technology-oriented. There'll also be active encouragement of the incubation and growth of new commercial and social ventures as part of this mix.
It will have a “glocal” outlook. That is, using South Australia as a global incubator for new social innovations that have application both locally and elsewhere around the world.
We welcome expressions of interest from any individual or organisation who would like to be part of this evolving conversation. The initiative is still in its formative stages, but has thus far proven to be highly resonant amongst key stakeholders, and is gathering momentum. As a co-creative endeavour, the contribution of your ideas and insights are most welcome.
