DESIGNING W/ COMMUNITY: SPRING 2017

Overview

The course will utilize social innovation principles and practices while striving to bring sustainable solutions to a grassroots community space through a series of integrated strategies. The initiative—Latham St. Commons is a newly formed non-profit social enterprise. They dream of being a learning laboratory where neighbors go to build relationships with each other and their surroundings, so the community, as a whole, can discover healthy ways of living that work for them. Their goal is to provide both social and economic opportunities through a variety of programming, community health services, teaching facilities and rental units to shelter new social enterprises.
