We’re used to breakthroughs in science. You’re reading this on one. But what if we invested in social R&D as much as we did in technology? Imagine a thriving scene, developing new ideas for the way we live and govern. What would it look and feel like, and what would allow it to thrive and make an impact on the critical social issues facing us.
Chris Vanstone of TACSI and Jason Pearman from the Canadian Government have both been working to nurture and encourage burgeoning scenes of social R&D, they tell us how that’s been going, what's been working, and what's hit a wall.
This session is part of 'work in progress'. A gathering for public innovators to share their unfinished and in-progress work and co-create new opportunities to take it further. Hosted by States of Change and powered by Sitra Lab.
We record these sessions and will share them via our newsletter, let us know if you'd like to sign up for that below.
