Social Innovation

Creating social change with talent, resources and creativity

The key to finding solutions to complex social issues facing modern cities and local neighbourhoods is breaking down old silos between government, citizens, not-for-profits, academia and business.

This is what social innovation is all about -  from economic development, the environment, to affordable housing, poverty, health and safety, modern cities like Surrey need creative solutions that transcend yesterday’s thinking.

We are all part of social innovation and building a better Surrey. Government alone is not the answer. The key is that we all work together to search for better, modern solutions to some of the significant issues that face urban centres like ours.

Social innovation in Surrey is guided by social, economic and environmental priorities of our Sustainability Charter and complementary City strategies.
