The great challenge of our time is the loss of any coherent notion of the common good.

Thriving Cities Group believes a first step to addressing complex systemic issues such as the racial wealth gap and broken social trust is to reforge the common good. This is done by building the will and ability of people to work together, across lines of difference, and through seemingly impermeable walls between institutions and communities.

We do this through Civic Design.

Civic Design: A multi-disciplinary approach

Civic Design is an approach that draws on a decade of sociological research, technology and community organizing. Thriving Cities Group integrates these disciplines into our three product offerings.
