Alberta's Social Innovation Ecosystem Reading/Viewing List

We've noticed that social innovators in Alberta do a lot of reading, documentary-watching and idea dissecting! While we've been a wee bit busy with fellowship obligations to find the time to peruse all the recommendations we've received throughout our inquiry, we thought we'd throw them out there for others to check out at their leisure.

So here it is, the top ten books/essays/movies as recommended by various actors within Alberta's social innovation ecosystem (listed in alphabetical order by title):
