Join us for this PaTHways Seminar on Extrapreneurship with Natalie Norouzy (2020, Business Studies) and find out more about the critically important role of social innovation in tackling the climate crisis.

This seminar examines the roles of social extrapreneurship and technology in helping to navigate the complexities of climate change and advancing sustainable practices. First, the concept of social innovation and its typologies: social entrepreneurship, social intrapreneurship, and social extrapreneurship will be presented. Then, the role of social extrapreneurship strategies in mitigating carbon emissions, fostering collaborations that extend beyond the boundaries of a single organisation will be explored. Finally, by integrating technological solutions with such strategies, an innovative perspective on how to address the complex sustainability challenges that organisations face will be offered – thereby, emphasising the benefit of utilising technology in social innovation to create more sustainable business practices and advance towards net-zero.
