About the Exchange

The goal of this exchange is to increase the pace of social and environmental change by making solutions more readily available to practitioners across the world. As practitioners share the components of their solutions (what we call "building blocks"), we hope that other practitioners will feel inspired to re-purpose those building blocks for an entirely different challenge.
