When I first started working with Jordi, the idea was that we would work on a project that would make starting or participating in social innovation and entrepreneurship (I’ll call it SEI for the time being, see our Name Struggles post) “activities” a more cohesive and smooth process. I’ve interviewed a few Bucknell students and graduates and I’ve finally started to attempt to use this blog, but where is that actually taking me? What can I actually do that will benefit the community, or at very least the Bucknell community? In David Bornstein’s How to Change the World, it’s mentioned that the problem with people “doing good” is that there are people who know how to make things happen but don’t have the ideas, and people that have great ideas but don’t know how to implement them. In all honesty, I’m not sure which person I am, but perhaps as I continue to rant about how I haven’t done much yet, I will find out.
“New solutions to old problems.”
I’m still trying to figure out how to embed a video, but for now, here’s the link to an excellent short video of leaders in the field explaining their interpretations of the term.
