Social innovation through Collaboration - establishing a bridge to strengthen the existing links between industry and voluntary organizations for sustained inclusive growth
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has come to acquire an important position in the corporate and business jargon over the last few years. CSR is now being looked at as a concept different from pure philanthropy and more in tune with strategic intervention that ultimately benefits industry itself and as a strategic intervention of giving back to the society.
Social innovation refers to new ideas that work in meeting social goals, simply ‘new ideas that work’. Social innovation also refers to new approaches, thoughts, ideas that meet social needs of local that extend and strengthen civil society. Social innovation discovers new approaches to deliver new solutions to global problems.
