Education and Training.
We have a powerful learning community of students, alumni, faculty and administrators, City staff and elected leaders, and community builders. We need to deepen their collaborative learning experiences and impact by building and practicing the skills needed to respond to the big challenges that cities face. We are helping to create the workforce that our future cities need, today. We need to build new partnerships that reflect the full diversity of learning and action that happens in the city.
Community Learning Hub.
We need an interactive communications tool set and strategy to enable project development that results in creating higher quality projects that can be shared. We want to increase the use of our studio space as a hub of skills building, action, changemaking and connection amongst young people, educators, city-builders and organizations. We want to more fully use our skills, experience, and space to encourage network building, experimentation, and deliver real-world projects that matter.
We need a stronger organisational structure to be resilient and grow our impact. This project is key to us establishing charitable non-profit status, a Board, and good governance and management practices. Ongoing evaluation needs to become more meaningfully integrated into our work in order to more deeply understand the effectiveness and impacts of our social innovations in the communities and systems that we work.
