Rethinking Our Thinking

October 10 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

$75 – $90

The morning workshop will teach attendees the methodology of systems thinking and how to use it as a tool to create meaningful change, and, through small group work, identify the interconnected systems/factors affecting the biggest challenges in the region by analyzing the following questions:

  • Why, despite the region’s best efforts, do we struggle to move from planning to implementation of widescale transportation efforts?
  • Why, despite it being a significant priority for the region, has preserving and improving affordable housing options been so difficult?
  • Why despite knowledge of increasing natural disasters and related damage, do communities struggle to build and rebuild with a resilience framework in mind?
  • Why, despite significant economic growth, is economic mobility-limited in the region?
