The Solutions Insights Lab website recently launched and houses inspiring information and research, including the searchable database of interview transcripts that we conducted with representatives from organisations, like Harambee, who are working to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues.
The Solutions Insights Lab was created through a partnership between the Skoll Foundation and Solutions Insights, an initiative of the Solutions Journalism Network (SJN), informed by their shared interest in identifying and interrogating what’s working — and what’s not — in the field of social innovation and supporting research and dialogue to advance problem-solving knowledge.
The website and database are intended to be regularly used by journalists, philanthropists, policy makers and change agents to learn more about promising responses to the world’s most pressing problems so that they can support, collaborate with, and shine a light on these ideas and models.
The website includes two types of stories: reported stories on Skoll Awardees and grantees that have been found in the Solutions Journalism Network’s Solutions Story Tracker, and structured interviews conducted with representatives from organisations that have received support from the Skoll Foundation over the past 20 years. The interviews represent a starting point to draw out practical insights from a wide range of individuals and organisations that have been working to address a myriad of social challenges.
