This is a guest post by David Hood, @davidahood of @doingsomegood , who will be the guest host for #ideachat on Saturday, August 11th at 9 am ET. He will be joined by @CDEgger as we discuss "Ideas for Social Good."
"If we are to solve these so called wicked problems then we need be addressing these issues systemically and working in new ways across sectors drawing from diverse disciplines for new approaches to cocreate innovative and effective solutions to transform our failing systems and institutions. As Einstein famously stated, 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.' And it might just be good business.
So what do we need to be doing differently, and how do we need to be thinking differently if we're to solve the grand challenges of our time? Where can we find ideas for social good and how might we best make them happen and have a positive impact?
Join us for this month's #ideachat where we'll explore ideas for social good - and the idea of social good. We will discuss how we can support the development of a global ecosystem to share, develop and implement ideas to transform community, culture and systems, and ideas that can help us build better futures for all, together."
