In this column from the National Conference on Citizenship blog, Stephen Goldsmith weighs in on the role of social innovation in fostering approaches to big citizenship to empower citizens and communities.
Drawn from his new book, The Power of Social Innovation , Goldsmith discusses the role of "big citizenship" fostering social innovation that empowers citizens and uplifts communities.
"Active citizenship also requires demanding innovation and reform in how their communities address social problems."
Goldsmith offers the following perspective:
"Big citizenship is not just valuable in its own right, i.e. for our civic health, social capital building, or vibrant democracy. Big Citizenship is critical for solving real, seemingly intractable social problems that affect every community and millions of Americans across the country."
