Provide a short description here indicating what a learning lab is: it begins by choosing a theme, extensive research to find a data source, and turning that into a demo and providing ways to learn in a multi-media format


We enable mayors, public leaders, foundations, and other stakeholders to keep pace with innovations that promote sound economic development, municipal finance, and sustainable communities  by creating an ecosystem in which these leaders can share and learn from each other’s blueprints for success and be empowered to impact the systems that affect the lives of citizens. Learn more about issues we work on.

Innovation is happening in communities around the world faster than ever before. I founded the Civic Innovation Project in 2015 to create a leading hub for facilitating global city-to-city learning of local government innovations, solutions, and issues.  Our goal is to be an essential partner to cities, foundations, communities, and key stakeholders by providing them with a single destination where they can find education, technical assistance, and leverage our consulting services, education programs, and convenings to learn about key areas that impact the sustainability of communities, and empower them with tools and capacity building programs to improve the lives of citizens on a global scale and transform communities.
