Cultivating the Karass: Innovating Cities

Recording: Cultivating the Karass: Innovating Cities, Mar 10, 2019


All cities share the same social issues and problems. Each challenge has a karass, a group of people who are unknowingly connected to be able to solve it. The karass comes from all sectors and includes people from all backgrounds, but they need that spark, that catalyst that unites them together to transform their city. "Cultivating the Karass" is learning how civic innovation utilizes the urban economy across all sectors of a city, to create sustainable and actionable solutions to our shared challenges. Learn from real-life examples from IBM Smarter Cities Challenge, Code for America partnership, Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayor's Challenge, and Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient cities projects. Each story provides insight into how to cultivate your karass.
