Delighted this morning to be invited to the International Conference on Social Innovation in Beijing (October 15th-17th). Not sure whether I will be able to go, but delighted to be invited all the same.
"The British Council China, the Young Foundation and the China Centre for Comparative Politics and Economics wish to invite you to the first ever International Social Innovation Conference scheduled for Beijing in October 2006. China’s impressive record of economic growth has brought with it urgent social challenges requiring the urgent attention of government, business and the not-for-profit sector.
Attention to social development has emerged as a central theme of China’s 11th five year plan and attention to social innovation cases and processes will capture the attention and imagination of key government, business and social leaders."
