Social Capital Residencies – Final Report

From 2017 to 2019 the re-invigorated Thinkers in Residence program was hosted by the Foundation. Entitled the Social Capital Residency, the goal was to enable South Australia to lead the country in creating jobs that both contribute to the economy and create social/ environmental impact. Five Thinkers visited the state across two years, culminating in nine key recommendations.

This Report offers a framework for the nine recommendations for action. It is based on five (5) principles. It outlines conditions for success that sit atop change levers that our Thinkers believe, if advanced, will result in South Australia being recognized as a vibrant, purposeful economy that will create new jobs and advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
