The sync: Creative Community for Social Innovation

Abstract [en]

Many people dream of making a change to our society. But most of the time, they are struggling to turn their dream into reality. Passion alone won’t bring change. There are many difficulties that people have to face when it comes to creating innovation, especially social innovation.

Within this project, my goal is to create a community for social innovation in Thailand focused on integrating design (as a process) into the core culture of its community. I want people to understand better the importance of design, and adopt it as a tool for their creation, as I believe it will help them to succeed in whatever they do, in a more sustainable manner.

Together with my collaborator ChangeFusion, a social business incubator, we have created The sync, a social enterprise with a mission to build a creative community that foster social innovation in Thailand.
