BC Alberta Social Economy Partnership Development: Scaling Innovation for Sustainability

This is a Partnership Development Grant  we received funding for last fall and I took up the co-lead role for Scaling Innovation for Sustainability with Mike Lewis, Noel Keough and Ana Maria Peredo. BALTA is the British Columbia Alberta Social Economy Research Alliance for the Social Economy.

I am the Academic lead for the Micro, Meso, Macro Research Cluster. To start discussions, I put together a reflection paper drawing from BALTA's research into the green social economy combined with the literature on multiple level perspectives, social innovation theory, and transition studies.

Here is the MMM discussion paper.

Feel free to post comments on the blog about this broad set of topics.
