INNOVATIVE SERVICE LIONS ARE FULL OF BRIGHT IDEAS FOR TACKLING GLOBAL ISSUES. Creative problem solving. For more than 100 years, this has defined the way Lions serve in their local communities and around the world. The 21st century has produced an astounding amount of innovation, changing how humans interact with each other and with the world. From smartphones to self-driving cars, we’ve become accustomed to technological breakthroughs offering to make our lives just a little bit easier, better, more connected. However, not every problem can be solved with a gadget. And too seldom do we acknowledge those innovating outside of Silicon Valley. While technology is addressing many of the world’s most pressing issues, there are age-old problems that require rolled-up sleeves and interpersonal exchange. This is where Lions thrive. Now more than ever, the world needs kind, inspired people willing and ready to do the work others won’t do. These are the stories of Lions and clubs who are taking matters into their own hands through big hearts and innovative service.
