2012 Social Change Impact Report by Walden University: “Global Economic Conditions Impact Positive Social Change”
Results from Walden University’s 2012 Social Change Impact Report show that two-thirds of adults across the globe agree that when economic conditions are bad, it is more important to be involved in social change than when economic conditions are good. However, many say their actions do not change in a bad economy, and in fact, only 20% of adults, on average, say they’re more likely to donate money to a cause or an organization when economic conditions are bad.
Despite the fact that many adults around the world see the value in nonprofits and that a majority get involved through organizations, institutions or companies (60%, on average), a majority still believe the most important agents of social change are “individual people acting on their own, not organizations or companies”.
