DESCRIPTION: Within our 21st century economy, innovation and disruption are happening lightning fast. Many of our communities find themselves lagging behind, or unable to keep up with this dynamism. As traditional social structures, funding sources, and governmental safety nets are challenged or dismantled, communities and the stakeholders within them all face unprecedented challenges.
Locally, Pittsburgh has gained high number of socially conscious businesses and organizations to tackle these challenges. However, these organizations have previously lacked a means of connecting to the resources that they need most. What would happen if we could activate the local economy that exists in each neighborhood to help? The first step is to realize that we have all we need to thrive, it is just a matter of connecting resources with those who need it most!
Join us to experience how involveMINT is activating these resources and encouraging cross sector collaboration in an exciting new way!
