Idea Lab V: Assessing Social and Environmental Impact

Date and Time:

Thursday, February 7, 2013 from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.


Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice, Room EF




Changemaking is about building a more sustainable and socially just world. However, how do we know that our idea, our project, is contributing to social change? How do we become aware that we can make adjustments to increase social impact? A starting point is to understand what social impact is and its different dimensions. This session will provide you with essential indicators to assess the success of your project.

In this session, you will learn different dimensions for measuring social or environmental impact. Learn simple tools you can use to create indicators to aid in benchmarking progress and predicting your venture’s social impact. Learn to clearly and concisely convey the complexity of your endeavor’s social impact.

Join us for our final Idea Lab before round one of the 2013 Social Innovation Challenge. A light lunch will be served.
