This Vancouver Sun editorial suggests the solution to our communities’ toughest challenges that is beyond the scope of a single entity. And, rather than one singular approach or plan, a multitude of ideas that hold the promise over time of solving some of society’s most intractable and vexatious problems will need to be generated, refined and implemented.  Instead, they suggest that what’s needed is a movement— they call it the Collective for Social Innovation — whose aim is to bring together people from different sectors with big ideas on how to tackle the most difficult problems society faces.
