Mark Pomerantz: Evolutionary Social Entrepreneurship
A new generation of entrepreneurial leaders is needed to rebalance society so that it is sustainable. The challenge to the generation of young people is evolving a balanced, collaborative way of life resilient enough to weather the coming events of the 21st century. These include pandemics, climate change events, and global economic and political instability. This workshop deals with evolutionary social entrepreneurship as a problem solving approach to these enormous social problems which also include creative aging, economic and class equity, and need for educational reforms. Implications for practice include an emphasis on social enterprise development of regenerative technologies that reduce waste, energy use and the percentage of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Evolutionary social enterprises could be involved with other aspects of the regenerative economy in such projects as the redevelopment of areas of poverty and decay using replicable models incorporating indigenous, locally produced and recycled materials, sustainable agricultural practices, and local labor, thus supporting the local economy and reducing the carbon footprint of the project. Implications for pedagogy include the development of trans-disciplinary curriculum in social entrepreneurship emphasizing technology and leadership aspects as much as business and financial elements. We also promote the formation of an “Invisible College” of savants of emotional, empathic, and collaborative intelligence that can bring the nation and the planet into a healing balance.
