Starting Bloc wants Social Entrepreneurs to Collaborate on Building Detroit’s Future
“…Between severe literacy rates (aÂ 2011 reportÂ found that nearly half the city is functionally illiterate), one of the highestÂ unemployment ratesÂ in the country (18.2%, compared to the U.S. jobless rate of 7.7 percent), a population that hasÂ decreased by 25%Â in the last decade and counts a third of its population asÂ living in poverty, and the governor of Michigan’s recent call for anÂ emergency managerÂ to help save the city from bankruptcy–the Motor City won’t be making ‘America’s Best Cities’ list anytime soon.
That is, unless the list is being made byÂ StartingBloc, a global community of 1900 social entrepreneurs from 55 countries with a mission of creating lasting change, which will hold its first everÂ Institute for Social InnovationÂ in Detroit in August…” -Â http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
