ECOSYSTEMS FOR PUBLIC PROBLEM-SOLVING
Most public policies assume wrongly that governments alone must pursue their goals. At the How Institute, we believe public problem-solving must focus on an 'ecosystem' approach. In this course we do not teach the solutions themselves - others can do that - but instead students will learn and then practice how to begin putting together an ecosystem that can tackle any challenge.
PUBLIC PRACTICE PROGRAM
For undergraduate students, we are developing immersive practice courses in their chosen fields of study, which are also complementary to their classroom learning. Our initial focus is on a few subjects - Architecture, Environmental Science and Economics. Students study and metric a problem in a selected locality through participatory and technical exercises, and then develop suggestions for how the metrics can be improved.
