    Springboard Social Innovation Forum -- Space is Limited; Please RSVP

    The Springboard Social Innovation Forum offers a monthly event designed to support those interested in creating a better future. Our focus is to help practitioners or potential practitioners of social projects push beyond discussion and debate into action. Each Forum will inspire and teach with ideas, powerful role models, and stories. Speakers, content experts, panels, and workshops will help you improve your strategies for planning and launching effective social ventures. The Forum will create a context to connect, learn, and take action around ideas that lead to tangible change—all in a venue designed for building community.

    Join us for a “working Forum,” where Portlanders will put our heads together to discuss the best ways to create and support social innovation in Portland and in other communities nationwide. We will be exploring Springboard’s latest initiative, Innovative Cities--a framework of the necessary conditions for nurturing and sustaining social innovation within a city. The Innovative Cities Model is a guide for cities to adopt which provides a place for existing social innovation resources to be listed, and then publishes them in a searchable database for other cities to replicate.

    SPACE IS LIMITED, and RSVP is REQUIRED! Please contact Mary Grace at (503) 452-6898 or [email protected]

    Cost is $10.00 at the door, which will offset costs and provide a light dinner.
