About the Summit
When it comes to social innovation, getting from “thought to action” is critical if good ideas are going to move from the drawing board to reality. This fundamental benchmark reinforces the theme of the fourth annual Surrey Social Innovation Summit on September 6, and emphasizes good ideas alone are not enough to make the kind of progressive change that builds a better city.
Building on the success of the first three summits, this year’ exciting agenda emphasizes the need for thoughtful and passionate leadership, project and program partnerships, capacity building, and the practical “how to” tools needed to generate social innovation in organizations, neighbourhoods and cities.
Presented by the City of Surrey, and a range of committed community and business partners, the annual Social Innovation Summit is a work-in-progress approach to finding creative and workable solutions for the important issues facing modern communities, particularly one like Surrey with a population that’s growing by 1,000 new residents every month.
