The 2020 pandemic has presented to the world a new set of opportunities which increases the need for social innovation in order to create effective solutions to those most vulnerable.

Due to its size, Brazil offers a perfect experiential learning environment that encourages entrepreneurial actions to mitigate issues ranging from social and economic inequality problems to sustainable environmental decisions. A key to this puzzle is to understand how the third sector, social projects, and social businesses are interacting to prioritize social impact to overcome current challenges in Brazil.
