Community Solutions

August 7, 2009 Leave a comment

Just a month ago, the  President called on foundations, philanthropists, and others in the private sector to partner with the government to find and invest in innovative, high-impact solutions that are found outside the Beltway.  The press release for this new White House initiative, Community Solutions, stated:

“Now more than ever, we need to build cross-sector partnerships to transform our schools, improve the health of Americans, and employ more people in clean energy and other emerging industries.  These community solutions will help build the new foundation for the economy and the nation. “

What say ye? What are the implications of a government that, at least in some sense,  “gets it”?

    I’m hopeful, AND I hope that we do not simply replicate old models of partnership, that leave out many stakeholders and are cumbersome in their implementation.
