SHIFT2013 is the first-annual conference of the LSE Social Entrepreneurship Society. SHIFT is a unique event bringing together those inside and outside the LSE to explore emerging theories and concepts in social entrepreneurship within a casual, flexible format.
This year SHIFT is all about the local: how do social entrepreneurs relate to local places and locals? Do locals themselves make the best changemakers? How does local context affect the process of scaling-up and attempts to tackle problems on a global level? How do we even begin to define locality in a globalized, networked world?
