Heropreneurship. Daniela Papi-Thornton
Social Entrepreneur. Daniela Papi-Thornton
Social Entrepreneurship is a buzz word. In Daniela Papi-Thornton's talk, she explores how the concept has narrowed down over time and is often used simply to refer to social businesses. But, as she explains, "we don't need more social businesses, we need more social change" and that requires more than just starting new businesses. It requires system change leadership. Daniela explores the difference between being a social business founder and a system change leader and then unpicks how we talk about, fund, and educate for social entrepreneurship, as well as what needs to change in our education and funding systems to fuel more system change leaders. Her talk is useful for anyone who is interested in social change, for educators looking to teach the next generation of system change leaders, and anyone who has heard the term social entrepreneurship but wants to know what it's really all about.
Daniela Papi-Thornton has a unique perspective on social entrepreneurship, developed as result of six years working for social change in Cambodia and her role as an educator at Oxford’s Saïd Business School. When focused on the role of the social entrepreneur as a “hero,” volunteer travel and social change education can have negative impacts on future social change leaders. Instead, she offers tools and perspectives that will help educators, parents, and budding change makers reposition themselves and rethink how we teach, fund, and incentivize social entrepreneurs.
Addressing “heropreneurship” can help us better equip the social change leaders of the future to tackle our global and local challenges.

Learning Service: The Essential Guide to Volunteering Abroad
Want to help? First you must be willing to learn.
This year, over ten million people will go abroad, eager to find the perfect blend of adventure and altruism. Volunteer travel can help you find your place in the world―and find out what you’re made of. So why do so many international volunteer programs fail to make an impact? Why do some do more harm than good?
Learning Service offers a powerful new approach that invites volunteers to learn from host communities before trying to 'help' them. It's also a thoughtful critique of the sinister side of volunteer travel; a guide for turning good intentions into effective results; and essential advice on how to make the most of your experience.
This book is for volunteers and educators alike. If you’re wondering if volunteer travel is right for you; if you’re getting on the plane tomorrow; or if you’re trying to adjust to life as a returned volunteer―this is the book you need in your bag.
