AOH Training for Practitioners of Social Innovation Labs: a tentative Proposal

Well as the last blog post seems to date back to 2016 I thought I'd add my little piece here too...if only to keep thing current!

I've been researching and networking within the social innovations lab scene and I've found that they tend to rather insular and poor at sharing 'best practice' (i.e. stuff that they have found works) between each other. There are several possible solutions to this but such as developing a stronger sharing culture within and between communities…

Welcome, Phil, great to see you here (that is, we will SEE you here when you upload a picture -- got a good one?). You may want to look out for the UK team here to find your local community -- getting in touch with Linda Mitchell or Jennifer Jones is a good place to start.  And when you get time, tell us some more about yourself, so we can connect with you.  There are plenty of resources to have a look at and conversations to become part of -- I hope this community will be a great one for you and you a great contribution to it!
