“If we all don’t win, we all lose.”
This is the lesson that Ashoka Fellows around the world continue to teach us as they create innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. We welcomed 109 new Ashoka Fellows into our global network in 2018, now showcased in this inaugural Emerging Insights report which details how our newly-elected Fellows change systems, cross borders, and shift mindsets in collaborative and holistic ways. In analyzing the work of these Fellows elected over the last 12 months, we saw patterns in their visions for social change as well as commonalities in the strategies and tools they use to achieve their goals. Organized broadly across eight complex global themes—such as youth, women, migration, and science and technology—this report reveals trends in these fields about where we are headed in the future.
