Heroes of Social Innovation, supported by Nokia
Closed
Hosted by: Chinwag and The Hub Westminster 27


The rise of social media and social technology has demonstrated its power to revolutionise industries, change governments and empower social movements. In a very literal sense, the power to connect and collaborate is quite literally changing the world. Mobile technology and social networks enable groups to self-organise and campaigns to gain worldwide momentum.

From global campaigns to national and hyper-local initiatives, mobile technology and social networks are helping to provide foundations for social innovators and social enterprises.

Starting with a keynote from Peace One Day founder, Jeremy Gilley, followed by Frontline SMS founder Ken Banks, our speakers will explore the people and organisations that are harnessing the opportunity the technology provides to overcome social challenges, the heroes of social innovation.

This event is produced by Chinwag and The Hub Westminster.
