In a far-ranging article from Griffith Review titled ‘A Quiet Revolution’, Cheryl Kernot, director of teaching and learning at the Centre for Social Impact at the University of New South Wales, presents a compelling exploration of social change efforts in the UK and Australia.
Giving numerous examples of successful (and unsuccessful) grassroots-led social change initiatives, Kernot interweaves the story of her developing interest in the field of social inclusion. She argues that in Australia we have some way to go in improving our structures, language and understanding of the third sector and its true value, and that social entrepreneurship has great potential in improving the health and vitality of communities and ultimately people’s quality of life.
