Using media for social innovation is a critical roadmap for understanding and researching ‘social innovation media’. These media initiatives seek to find new solutions to seemingly intractable social problems by combining creativity, media technologies and engaged collectives in their design and implementation. The book uses a number of case studies – including youth, Indigenous, human rights and environmental campaign media – to illuminate the emergence of purposeful and productive platforms for social change. It interrogates the guiding principles, assumptions, goals, practices and outcomes of these experiments, revealing the challenges they face, the components of their innovation, and the political economy within which they operate.
