Solutions

Solutions to community problems have two major flavors: political action and direct action. Political action is the process of pushing governments and firms to address a problem. For example, pushing state government to help phase out air pollution in a city. Direct action is the process of directly working to solve a problem as a community. For example, a neighborhood that repurposes a roadway as green infrastructure with capacities such as cycling paths, play areas, green space and food production. Political action generally involves the production of creative tension. Direct action benefits from entrepreneurial approaches such as design thinking, systems thinking, worse is better and fail well.
