InDaily: New ‘Thinker’ to outline plans to build social innovation in SA

The first “Thinker” in a rebooted Thinkers in Residence program will this week outline her ideas for building the “social economy” in South Australia.

The program, which is no longer funded by the State Government, has been taken on by the Don Dunstan Foundation, with an 18-month focus on “social capital” starting this week.

The first Thinker is Allyson Hewitt, who leads the social innovation programs at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto, Canada, which bills itself as one of the largest urban innovation hubs in the worlds.

Hewitt, who will make her first Adelaide appearance tomorrow at a Social Capital Residencies Showcase, has helped hundreds of socially-oriented ventures to become economically sustainable.
