Dare to Discover the Innovator Within

Imagine a world in which, regardless of birth nation, level of education, or social status, you had the power to change your life and the lives of those around you. For many who find themselves in dark and hopeless situations, this seems like an unimaginable concept. Tracy Kijewski-Correa contends that innovation— the ability to conceive novel solutions to our personal and even collective challenges— need not be reserved for “experts.” On the contrary, those closest to the world’s most wicked problems are ultimately the ones who will solve them. Whether you find yourself in post-quake Haiti or post-industrial South Bend, these answers are waiting inside you, your community and yes, even within your darkest challenges. With some creative confidence and a little radical collaboration, everyday citizens can discover them and become their own agents of change.
