1.3 Wilberforce’s ‘Conversion’ to Evangelicalism
William Wilberforce, the politician and religious writer, was instrumental in the abolition of slavery in Britain in 1807. This unit explores Wilberforce’s career and writings and assesses their historical significance. In particular it examines the contribution that Evangelicalism, the religious tradition to which Wilberforce belonged, made in the transitions between the Enlightenment and Romanticism. Throughout it relates Wilberforce’s career and writings to wider social and cultural devel

5.5 Entrepreneur

From this it is clear that money is a key requirement for transforming an invention into an innovation. Money pays for the people and equipment needed to refine the invention into a practical working prototype, and money pays for manufacturing it.

A key role in providing this vital monetary support is played by the entrepreneur. This is a persuasive individual or group providing the resources and organisation necessary to turn the invention into an innovation.

Speaking Innovation to Power: The Uses and Abuses of Power in Social Innovation
Speaking innovation to power is a key element of successful, system changing, social innovations. This session will ground the dynamics of challenging and channeling existing power resources to support real change in cases as diverse as helping displaced persons camps in Eritrea, facilitating multistakeholder collaborations in British Columbia and changing the power dynamics of environmental organizations through the use of global search engines.

(Financial) power to the people
Web 2.0 entrepreneurs are shifting power dynamics from institutions (governments and NGOs) to end-users (donors and aid recipients) by creating new online marketplaces. These three social entrepreneurs are having a positive impact on development goals but each follows a different business model: online micro-lending for Kiva, online giving for Global Giving, and online investing for MyC4. Join them in the conversation.

Pain and Aspirin
What causes pain and how do we stop it? This unit looks at how the human body responds to the release of certain chemicals and as a result feels pain. Pain can be reduced by inhibiting the formation of such chemicals and you will learn how the molecular structure of aspirin has been formulated to help in this process.
