Large-scale social change requires broad cross-sector coordination, yet the social sector remains focused on the isolated intervention of individual organisations.
This is a link to an article about collective impact from Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR).
Collective impact requires all participants to have a shared vision for change, one that includes a common understanding of the problem and a joint approach to solving it through agreed upon actions.
SSIR is an award-winning magazine and website that covers cross-sector solutions to global problems. SSIR is written for and by social change leaders in the non-profit, business, and government sectors who view collaboration as key to solving environmental, social, and economic justice issues.
