I just found out about a new initiative, called Social Power – every heard of it?? It’s a pretty cool concept. Basically, you have an idea about somethign that you want to change, and you post it as a Social Power Issue. When 1,000 agree with you that it’s an issue, it turns into an Initiative – cool, right?!
Here’s a short video clip that explains the program really well – worth watching:
Through social power, we are given the power to make a difference, and a force behind that power. Some examples of issues could be “Supermarkets should offer all food that’s about to expire at 50% off” or “Chipotle should deliver”. I’m sure the wheels are already turning for you, thinking about great ideas you’ve had to change something.
Co-founder “Gleich views such issues as the key to Social Power’s success, and foresees Social Power empowering every individual. “It doesn’t take a soapbox and a bullhorn to change the game,” says Gleich. “All it takes is an Internet connection and a meaningful issue.”
