In the past six years there has been a seismic shift in the social innovation industry stemming from the financial crisis of 2008. Before the crisis things were best described as adequate with the Private Sector enjoying a burgeoning period with company stock market listings at an all-time high. The Public Sector benefited from taxes on increasing company profits, and the Third Sector enjoyed Lottery money – a fairly recent addition to their funding; the community was the recipient from all this. Since the crash, however, no sector has adequate resources forcing us to become reliant on each other to survive and to develop new blended solutions to meet the challenges of society. This has demanded a new map of multi-stakeholder engagement - citizenship. Social Innovation is like any other industry with trends stemming from Philanthropy, to CSR, to Sustainability, to the current Social Impact ... to Citizenship which is the new destination.
