Social Value US is the United States chapter of Social Value International (SVI), a global network of 1000 practitioners worldwide working "to change the way society accounts for value." All too often key decisions about resources and policies are made using a limited economic concept of value, which fails to consider important effects on people and the environment. As the gap between rich and poor increases and the effects of climate change become more apparent, our work has never been more urgent. SVI works with our members to embed core principles for social value measurement and analysis, to refine and share practice, and to build a powerful movement of like-minded people to influence policy. This pioneering community contains members from 45 countries, drawn from a huge range of different sectors and disciplines. Our goal is to support, connect, and represent our members through training, knowledge-sharing and networking. We are much more than a professional network. Together, we are building a movement for change. Join us!
