Social Enterprise is a social and economic movement that is growing rapidly across the western world particularly in the UK, Europe and the USA. A new generation of entrepreneurs are redefining business by creating enterprises that create social value parallel to profit.

-▶ THERE IS A PHENOMENAL CONCENTRATION OF POWER IN THE HANDS OF A FEW:

SOCIAL ENTERPRISES AS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CONSUMERISM. Social enterprises have a huge future in business. "As Van der Hoff Boersma explains in his book, it's about looking for solutions that the poor themselves have. "We need to use this current crisis of capitalism to push forward an alternative model of an economy based on solidarity to which social enterprises are one manifestation." http://www.theguardian.com/social-enterprise-network/2014/mar/07/fairtrade-fortnight-harriet-lamb-interview

-▶ WHY SAVING THE PLANET IS NO LONGER THE WORK OF POLITICAL LEADERS: AN URGENT COLLABORATIVE TASK AHEAD

Why saving the planet is no longer the work of political leaders -

From states to citizens, everyone has a stake in overcoming the inertia that surrounds decisive action on sustainability...

With the collapse of intergovernmental and global processes, it is becoming increasingly apparent that we now must use new mechanisms that bring businesses and communities together. For these to succeed, we need new ways to define and measure our goals and achievements. Saving the planet is no longer the work of political leaders, but an opportunity for managers, CEOs, accountants and activists to devise collaborative solutions.... there must be measurable goals and a new mechanism for accountability.

No longer is conventional CSR reporting adequate to the task. New accounting methods, as Rio's Declaration on Natural Capital begins to define, must be put in place....

Caring for the ‘sharing economy’

Caring for the ‘sharing economy’ | The New Economy | Scoop.it

The “sharing economy,” as it’s coming to be known, has attracted increasing attention the past few years, initially due largely to its novel nature. But recently, the publicity has stemmed from the growing legal and regulatory challenges posed by the unique new business sector.
