台灣17名平均年齡81歲的老人家

「老人家?唔好出去喇,留喺屋企啦!」這是不少人對長者的看法,以為長者就不再有夢想,但他們可比年輕人更有勇氣實現夢想,更堅韌地圓夢。台灣17名平均年齡81歲的老人家,5年前用了13天時間騎電單車環島遊,沿途除了追逐18歲時的夢想,也告訴大眾:長者也可有夢想,鼓勵窩在家中已久的長者,多出來走走;年輕人也應該放膽讓長者尋夢。
77歲的陳映美婆婆,於5年前看報章得知有騎電單車環台的活動,便急急拉著同樣七十多歲的丈夫張弘道參加,結果陳婆婆是車隊中的唯一女將,她指活動太有意義,因很少有這樣的老人活動,讓她看到台灣的美麗,勇往直前地騎著電單車,心情也年輕了。張爺爺異口同聲說:「社會太多排斥,老人沒有用,乖乖留在家好了!」但其實老人只要多一點鼓勵,也可以實現夢想。
主辦該次活動的弘道老人福利基金會執行長林依瑩說,老人家的夢想其實很簡單,可能只是「做酥餅、打棒球、做火車服務員等」,但卻遭社會歧視而窒礙,該活動也拍成紀錄片,期望可透過影片喚起大眾善待長者,鼓勵長者逐夢。

Happy social enterprise day one and all.

This week on LIVEWIRE:
  • An exclusive video from Twitter’s Claire Diaz-Ortiz on how to use social media
  • The latest leaps and bounds made to bring retail investment £s into the social investment market
  • Top legal advice on how social enterprises should structure themselves to get investment.
Millions of pounds are poised to enter the social enterprise marketplace, but there are still many barriers to overcome before a functional marketplace emerges. To the list of investment readiness, investor readiness, over-regulation, under-regulation and deal flow you can now add legal structures.
Social enterprises have a straight choice between non-profit distributing forms (which are no use to investors) or corporate structures that don’t have the tax breaks of charities. 
What’s a social enterprise to do? Find out in the video below or come along to Good Deals, our social investment conference to get their best social investment advice par excellance.
We’re just two weeks out now and there are only a handful of tickets left. Book now before it’s too late.
Thanks for reading.
Good Deals, the UK’s leading social investment conference returns on 28 and 29 November. We’re connecting social entrepreneurs, investors, intermediaries and multi-nationals business, to get good deals done. Book your ticket now to come along.

TEDxToronto highlights
From outcomes to impact
SSE-O opens its doors

1% for the Planet

TEDxTorontoEach of the speakers at the October 26th TEDxToronto event has the inspired and inspirational capacity to “bring ordinary elements together to make something extraordinary.” This magical process offers up a new way of looking at the world. But these speakers, nay activists, are doing even more. They’re providing our communities with infinite possibilities for growth, sustainability…and hope.

Four factors to consider when evaluating outcomes by Stephanie Robertson and Anne Miller

In recent years there has been a shift in the field of program evaluation from activities-based to outcomes-based evaluation practice. While an activities-based evaluation focuses on measuring the outputs of a program (i.e. the number of participants, sessions or trees planted etc.), an outcomes-based evaluation focuses on measuring the change that occurred as a result.

Sam Saad Toronto is a city of plenty. Its present course reminds me of those 1950s commercials about industrial “cities on the go”. Voted in the top 10 cities for innovation by Melbourne’s 2thinknow Consultancy Firm and the 7th best place to live by the Economist Intelligence Unit, one can understand why the School for Social Entrepreneurs chose Toronto as its inaugural North American home. Opening in August of this year, and welcoming the first cohort of 20 students on September 14th, SSE has found fertile ground in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
