The Life Cycle of a Social Entrepreneur
Margaret Mead has become the go-to for inspirational quotes on social entrepreneurship. Think:
“Never ever depend on governments or institutions to solve any major problems. All social change comes from the passion of individuals.”
“I measure success in terms of the contributions an individual makes to her fellow human beings.”
And of course…
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
In honour of Margaret Mead, we are taking a ‘scientific’ look at the life-cycle of a social entrepreneur. From the early stages of developing an idea, to the ups-and-downs of project implementation, and to the difficult decision to either let a project wind-up or be based on to another custodian, there are always stories to tell and lessons to learn.
Who better to tell those stories than some of the change makers who are doing inspiring things in their own home towns? Join us for an inspiring, encouraging and hilarious discussion with a group of incredible ABC Trailblazers who are running projects all over regional Australia.
This session is hosted by Futures Isle, a small best-friend run business based on the banks of the kanamaluka in lutruwita/Tasmania. Futures Isle exists to support people, communities and organisations to find the next step on their journey. We partner with organisations, projects and initiatives that share our values and have meaningful impact. Most importantly though, we love people and places and want to see them shine.
Em and Taz from Futures Isle will be joined by some of their friends from the ABC Trailblazers program.
