Social Innovation Lab
The Social Innovation Lab is a place for community change makers to get new thinking and connections to advance their work. The lab has three goals:
1. Learn new tools and ways of seeing things that can help advance social innovation.
2. Advance innovative projects that are working to enable sustainable and inclusive communities in Minnesota by applying new learning to featured projects, as well as to your own work.
3. Connect with other change makers, from many fields and perspectives, to share insights and build collaborative relationships.
The next Social Innovation Lab will be scheduled soon. Contact Michael Bischoff (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get on the list to be notified about the upcoming dates and topics. There have been three labs so far. You can find information about each of the labs below.
