Getting on with the Job: From Deliberate Relationships to a National Community Innovation System

by Neil Bradford

Getting on with the Job:  From Deliberate Relationships to a National Community Innovation System speaks to the importance of enabling policy creativity at the local level.  Neil Bradford proposes to mobilize a national community innovation system to support and engage the voluntary/non-profit sector and policy advocates in partnering with governments to introduce innovative programs and polices to meet local needs and strengthen communities.  The system would address five key policy challenges:  social inclusion, environmental sustainability, cultural diversity, public health and economic development.
