Shareable: Crowdfunding Social Change

Shareable: Crowdfunding Social Change | Yellow Boat Social Entrepreneurism | Scoop.it

We are at an inflection point in human history that requires that we answer the call. There is no more time to dawdle. This inflection point can be characterzized by the convergence of a transformation in values with a technological revolution. This combination will enable a techno-cultural re-ordering that will allow us to interact differently. This will make it possible to organize and coordinate activity in new and innovative ways as well as to re-define the very structure of our institutions since, no doubt, the structure of our institutions is deeply connected to how we interact with each other.
