We know that our world is full of problems:
- The air we breathe and the water we drink
- The cities we live in and our well-being
- Global warming
- Ageing and special needs
- Growing wealth gap, inequality and poverty, in the world and in China
- The unpredictable future of work with robots and AI
Challenges seem endless and we see an urgent need to:
- Encourage and support more social entrepreneurs to turn ideas into solutions.
- Make start ups more social; B-Corp, a new and growing movement.
- Create sustainable business models and bring in more business skills alongside the social aims
- Engage businesses in helping change the world
The time is right. There is a big future for social innovation in China. Trends we have seen include:
- A real mood for doing, especially amongst young people
- China government focus on social innovation, centrally and locally
- Leadership in the world, especially post-Trump
- Access to technology and manufacturing
