In its beta phase, SoJo has reached over 15,000 social innovators since November 2011. The official launch of SoJo provides more resources and information for individuals looking to turn their ideas into action. The service provides a step-by-step guide to achieving social change. SoJo is a self-guided online resource for individuals to use to develop ideas allowing those at the intersection of social change to find exactly what they are looking for and at any stage in their journey.
The endorsement by UNESCO represents a validation of the work that SoJo has been doing in bridging the gap between those looking for help with their ideas and the necessary educational tools and direction that SoJo provides. “The Canadian Commission for UNESCO is proud to support SoJo and believes that it is an innovative initiative that will have a multiplier effect by providing a platform to bring together social innovators who can collectively work toward finding solutions to global challenges”, said David A. Walden, Secretary-General of Canadian Commission for UNESCO.
SoJo dropped the word Beta, has over 500 unique resources and online tools, and is ready to help you bring your ideas in action! Check out the new site at http://theSoJo.net
With the launch comes a more robust web platform. SoJo is now equipped to upload more content, build more partnerships, and grow our community. The product team will now focus on developing the backend technology that will organize the knowledge found on SoJo in an intuitive and interactive manner. We have ambitious goals are excited to see SoJo's vision begin to materialize. Stay tuned for more exciting updates.
