Makers are encountering the toolsets needed to expand the reach and impact of socially-conscious projects
In recent years, social entrepreneurship has become a familiar household term as more and more individuals look to business opportunities to make the world a better place. Around the globe, self-learners and entrepreneurs of all ages are applying a ‘hands-on’ approach to constructing the world around them. What defines the influence, scope and power behind the movement is its optimism in action—the belief in individuals’ ability to enact change, and then to do it.
It’s not just behavioral and attitude shifts that are inspiring social causes: the maker community is finally encountering and innovating with technologies that can expand their vision for solutions into reality.
