How it works

3 Minute Presentations from Community Innovation Hub Members!

People of all or no faith are rallying to give back like never before. We know that complacency is not a solution for poverty, hunger, disease, environmental issues and inequality. We know that we hold in common enough knowledge, resources, time and talent to go from scarcity to abundance.

For example, statistics tell us that we produce enough food globally to feed everyone. But 70% of food of the food we produce is wasted because:

  • Of logistical error.
  • It doesn’t look the way it ‘should’.
  • It goes bad in our refrigerators.
  • It goes uneaten on our plates.

If we all worked together, no one would have go hungry

We must stand up and make a difference.

The Community Innovation Hub is all about acting locally to make change globally.

We are a rallying place, a nurturing place and a place for change to start.

We are a place grounded in relationship, prioritizing spiritual and social innovation and impact. 

We are a place to make a difference.

 

What is a community innovation hub?

Community Innovation Hubs are communities of faith where changemakers gather and support each other in the important work of making a difference in society. It is where changemakers build out their ideas, connect with other like-minded individuals and form relationships of trust, accountability, learning and support.

Here, local changemakers:

  • learn from local experts on topics from fundraising to design thinking to governance to branding
  • join in peer-to-peer coaching where everyone shares their challenges and celebrations in an atmosphere of support
  • share their own experiences for the shared good of social change
  • build the network and local eco-system of changemakers
  • engage in spiritual capacity building so that the whole lives of changemakers and their communities can flourish
