The importance of social innovation lies mostly in the underlying assumption that the current model of social development is undergoing a massive crisis, both in terms of its sustainability and its capacity to deliver sense and equal prosperity to all. Social innovation represents a new and specific process for innovation through which alternative models of social development can be invented, prototyped, tested and scaled. The mission of social innovation is therefore to find a novel and shared ecosystem of interactions and interrelations based on an integrated approach to development, one that takes into account the economic, technological , social and environmental dimensions.
