“Innovation occurs when problems and potential solutions are reframed, reimagined or recombined in new ways to achieve a transformational product, process or service. Innovation in the social context not only generates new ground-breaking products but restructures and re-organizes social systems to yield better solutions and create stronger, more resilient societies.”
On June 25, Circle of Blue Co-Founder Carl Ganter received one of four Centennial Innovation Awards from the Rockefeller Foundation. Ganter and team received the award for developing a “unique, multi-disciplinary approach to documenting and reporting on the global freshwater crisis.”
The Value Web is thrilled Circle of Blue is receiving this well-deserved, well-earned recognition and looks forward to continuing to work with them to inform, enrich and enable decision making about the global fresh water crisis. It is gratifying to see many of the ideas that were developed in our 2010 Waves and Memes Design Session taking root and resonating with organizations of such caliber as Rockefeller.
Congratulations Carl, Eileen, Keith, Aaron, Andrew, Nadya and everyone at Circle of Blue. Carry on, and keep on shifting that vector!
