Our book

There’s a lot going wrong in the world: climate change, war, inequality, divisive politics. It can be hard to see a way out of the issues we face. But social entrepreneurs across the world are addressing these big problems in innovative ways. The New Ism seeks to build their innovations into the fabric of modern society, creating a new economic system that is fit for the modern world.

In Social Entrepreneurship, the first book of a series, Mel Young and Alexandra Matthews demystify what it means to be a social entrepreneur and explore how their work could help us all to create a sustainable, inclusive world where humans live within the means of the planet and all life can thrive. Through interviewing social innovators and disruptors, and Mel’s experience as a leading social entrepreneur himself, they have a unique vantage point on what could just be the key to a brighter future.
