Exploring Changemaking | The Solution Finders Mindset

On Thursdays From June 14 - July 5.

In a world where our sources of information focus more on the problems, our abilities to find strategies that solve those problems are weakening. We can find ourselves struggling to retain our own hope and inspiration for a better world. This four-week discussion group will expose you to news of what people around the globe are doing to improve the world by using a tool called Solutions Journalism. Come learn how to find solutions-driven stories on topics that interest you and engage in basic changemaker thinking by analyzing how people are responding to problems. What are their ideas? What’s working? What’s not working? If you have a laptop or tablet you are welcome to bring it with you. Contact group leader Melissa Allison with questions.
