PAPER | The Community Innovation Imperative

Publications, Sylvia Cheuy, Community Innovation

Developing innovation capacity within our communities and the non-profit sector has now become a strategic imperative. With the array of complex challenges now confronting communities, the solutions we need will not be found by simply making incremental changes to our current programs and approaches.

In this paper, Sylvia Cheuy explores community innovation -  a unique form of social innovation that is place-based within the specific geography of a community.
