SIX (Social Innovation Exchange)

SIX (Social Innovation Exchange)

SIX is now the world’s primary network focusing on social innovation. Our vision is that people all over the world can become better innovators by more easily connecting to their peers, sharing methods and exchanging solutions globally.

We connect people as friends, who trust each other and who can be open about their challenges, as well as successes. We are more of a community than a network.

We work with governments, businesses, academics, funders, practitioners and leading social innovation intermediaries that support social innovation to accelerate the field of social innovation around the world. Simultaneously, we also seek to learn from the real people innovating in their own communities. By linking all these actors across sectors, fields and geographies, we can spread the most effective models more quickly.

SIX has developed a unique approach of connecting innovators, designing experiences, curating knowledge and insights, and disseminating practical examples of social innovation, which enable the global community to learn from each other, and builds the capacities of our members.

Organization Mission

Mission & Values

Our mission is to help established social innovators to become better innovators by connecting peers, sharing methods and exchange solutions globally.

We, the members of SIX,

  1. Value social impact (rather than ideas)
  2. Celebrate solutions (more than heroes)
  3. Engage honestly (more than just inform)
  4. Inspire through action (not just words)
  5. Connect as peers (not in a hierarchy)
  6. Committed to openness (and welcome the unexpected)

Our values are not just a nice list of hopes - they drive our work everyday.
