“A social innovation addresses social problems and design solutions which are that is more usable, effective, efficient and sustainable.”
Social innovation not only brings about usable and effective solutions, but also helps design sustainable systems, which accommodate these changes. Social innovation always puts the users at the center and follows a clear process, which begins with user insights. Based on such a human centered design process, social innovation addresses the unmet and the gaps with the prime objective of social uplifting.
The main guiding principle in this pedagogy is to enhance the role of ones self to be in tune with the social environment s/he is a part of. This user centric approach gives the professional an edge where the abilities like empathy, analysis and design take precedence.
