Abstract
In recent years, social innovation has become one of the most important accents in the economic development strategies of developed countries. Increased interest in this instrument of social changes is associated with their positive contribution to the achievement of a high level of employment, social security, gender and social equality; well-being of the population. As a new model of interaction between civil society and the state, social innovations increase the ability of the population to organize and act. The article deals with the essence of social innovations and the effect of their implementation on the development of society and territories. To solve these problems, we have summarized the views of foreign and domestic scientists on the problems of social innovation, analyzed with the help of sociological research the possibility of using social projects, the willingness of the population to participate and implement social practices, the presence of the request of civil society for social innovation. The article presents some examples of social innovations in Russia, shows their social effect in solving social problems. We learned that despite the low innovative activity of the population, there is a high willingness to participate in volunteer programs in the Russian society. Our results provide a new perspective on the development of social innovation and can serve as a basis for assessing the role of this tool in the development of Russian regions. The following researches should broaden our understanding of the interaction of government, civil society and non-profit structures to create a favorable environment for the development of social innovation.
