Abstract

The extent and diversity of social and community innovations, i.e. primarily “bottom-up” innovations designed to address some of the problems generated and gaps left by contemporary capitalism (Pol and Ville, 2009), has grown remarkably in the past decade. The harnessing by community groups, social entrepreneurs and digitally or proximally connected activists of physical, intellectual, social and network resources to drive innovation that addresses needs that are not adequately met by conventional systems, has become an ever more present feature of the innovation landscape. An era of dramatic and dynamic economic change has also drawn attention to a posited polarisation in earnings, ownership of assets and access to resources. This, in turn, has stimulated debate with respect to how assets might be shared more equitably and the implications of this for corporations, governments and citizens.
