Listening-Based Community Engagement and Locally-Sources Sustainability with Steve Wright

Steve Wright, through his organization 4 Walls International, knows that “the world is littered with opportunities,” but how can people who want to promote positive change work in communities not their own without simply imposing their own agendas? Steve, a student in Social Innovation and Sustainability, talks here about what it means to listen deeply to people in a community and source sustainability projects, materials, and ideas locally. Watch this short video, part of a new series filmed by Alexander Love, based on interviews with GGI students and faculty.
