Amplifying Creative Communities

It’s easy to be a little cynical about this kind of thing, but Amplify Creative Communities is a pretty interesting and timely idea …

Graduate students and faculty affiliated with Parsons’ Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability Lab interviewed leaders from 30 different community organizations about socially innovative solutions to urban problems, from community gardening to alternative transportation.

The idea of the project is to “amplify” good ideas and lessons from these activists’ hard work. It’s chock full of ambitious and timely goals, like helping people “learn how to create successful alternatives to the standard commercial and government services.”
