The tools used are from the worlds of service design, product management, and systems thinking. Every project starts as an experiment to be tested. It can be short-lived or build momentum into a fully-fledged program.
Social impact issues involve complex relationships, unspoken obstacles, powerful forces and human incentives. Let's decipher these using visuals.
Existing information and initiatives establish critical context about culture, behavior, and the success/failure of models. Let's use a careful balance of both experimentation and criticism.
Self-sufficient community-driven strategies emerge when a foundation is laid for all efforts to thrive. Let's not create additive solutions - Let's rework or newly design underlying frameworks.
Ambitious Vision: Positive community change already exists in many forms. But let's get underneath - Let's create the conditions for more effective change & social impact.
Everyday Mission: The right conditions can only be sprouted and cultivated from the community and its residents. Beginning as experiments, the approaches that result can't thrive without being nurtured by the daily lives of residents. They are intricately community-driven.
Dynamic teams for change mean multiple sectors collaborate - an inherent part of systems-thinking. They must push and pull each other.
Try to invalidate your own ideas. Putting them through objective/opposing tests is the most convincing way to show your solutions truly work.
