On February 8th, 2017 Young Social Innovators launched our strategy Social Innovation Thinking Differently, A Plan to Develop Ireland’s Innovators and Entrepreneurs who will Build a Fairer, Inclusive and Sustainable World.
The strategy features YSI's vision, history, and impact stories from young social innovators across Ireland. It also outlines YSI goals and actions for 2017-2020, and provides commentary on Ireland's potential to be a leader in social innovation, including what steps should be taken to ensure this can happen.
Our plan to develop Ireland’s innovators and entrepreneurs to build a fairer, inclusive and sustainable world.
Young Social Innovators intends to provide the best education in social innovation for young people anywhere in the world.
- By 2020, we want at least half our teenagers to be empowered to do social innovation in their local area helping Ireland stake its claim as a world leader in social innovation whilst shaping a fairer and more equal society.
- Our plan to achieve this is to engage 50% of all second-level schools every year in Ireland.
