Challenges We Love to Work On

The New Commons mantra is Think...Link...Do.


Here are some of our current or recent projects that reflect the kind of thinking, linking and doing we love to work on:


  • Creating a culture of makersĀ to support the rebirth of manufacturing and using additive manufacturing

  • Articulating the future of teaching and learning with the learner being self directed, accessing and using digital technology

  • Building organizations of the future, especially organizations composed of multiple entities in different geographies using digital technology

  • Animating the digital city, a digital culture

  • Demonstrating how the next economy will unfold through more use of broadband technology

  • Nurturing the future library as the city or town commons that builds community...the library was founded by Ben Franklin to foster democracy and democracy needs some major help now

  • Building resilient cities that in the face of shocks, like extreme weather, keeps functioning, bounces back, learns from the shock and gets better because of stress

  • Fostering communities with a distinct sense of place and soulfulness
