Students & Social Innovation Will Save Our World
Tuesday Oct. 30, 2012
All-day event

At a time in history when economic, social and environmental problems seem worse than ever, students around the world are looking for bold ideas in hope of a better future. What if we could help them to discover innovations that could not only revitalize the global economy but could also solve pressing social and environmental problems? Social innovation harnesses the power of creativity, invention and experimentation to uncover powerful solutions and then, through purpose-driven entrepreneurship, brings those ideas to life in sustainable, scalable ways.

Through stories and experience from UT’s Dell Social Innovation Challenge (DSIC), this talk will illuminate the ideas and successes of real student social innovators and demonstrate how social innovation has the potential to save the world.
