Mel Young is a social entrepreneur and founder of several successful social enterprises including the Homeless World Cup, which uses football to inspire people who are homeless to transform their own lives; more than a million people have been positively impacted. He has won several awards and is the author of two books.





Alexandra Matthew’s background is in writing and marketing; she also worked at Ashoka UK, a network of leading social innovators, where Mel is a Fellow. Together, they have created The New Ism, a discussion forum with a huge ambition: to create a new, more inclusive and sustainable global system that brings together the efforts of social innovators across the world.


Social entrepreneurs are remarkable people with an ability to not only envisage change, but create the systems to implement it. We need them more than ever before. It makes perfect sense that they should lie at the heart of a new global system, and Mel and Alexandra make a case that would convince even the most sceptical.

François Bonnici, Head of Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship

A clear, comprehensive and convincing look at the people and the systems that can make the world a better place for all. There is a clear case for a complete system change which will make sure that the UN Sustainable Development Goals are achieved by 2030 and social entrepreneurs can provide the leadership and ideas to make that change possible.

Jeroo Billimoria, Global social entrepreneur and founder of Catalyst 2030
