It’s an interesting petri dish we all live in. Midwestern values. Northeastern determination. Sunbaked freedom born of relentless heat. Whatever it is, it works.
Our community is creative, intelligent and well-intentioned. We have our share of negatives too, but underneath it all exists an earnest and active drive for fairness, logic and innovation. We are open to good ideas. We value them and get behind them with more vigor than most other communities.
While our collective consciousness is fertile ground for growth and happiness, much good thinking goes under-utilized because it remains siloed and isn’t activated by the power of our community.
With that appreciation, we introduce Catalyst Community Voices as a conduit for ideas.
CCV delivers insight from the organizations and citizens that work to make our lives better. Each participating organization has committed to providing regular installments of insight through articles, interviews, podcasts, infographics or whatever means necessary. Our stated mission, and our challenge to contributors is:
“There are multiple perspectives to any issue and each perspective contains its own internal truth. Pragmatic thinking that transcends the truth of any single perspective, and combines the wisdom of many perspectives, drives inclusive innovation of our collective perspective. This platform is a conduit for such thinking.”
Aspiring to this mission will help build consensus. Together we’ll absorb, circulate and hone ideas, and derive more value from them for having built them together. Start exploring here and look forward to more soon.
