Northern Ireland is in the midst of a period of intense social and economic change. We face both profound challenges and a complex web of new opportunities. This is a moment that requires creative solutions to address the greatest issues of
our time. This report sets out a path to create the conditions in which innovative responses to social needs in Northern Ireland can blossom and flourish.

This report was funded by the Northern Ireland Department for Social Development and in producing this report the Young Foundation has collaborated with the Mondragon Corporation, the world’s largest industrial network of cooperatives.
