we can share dialogue
CoAct is a non-profit design organization that helps non-profits, grass roots organizations, and communities explore, discover, and deploy human centered solutions. Our approach helps our partners explore pressing social challenges, identify strategic responses, develop viable concepts, deploy viable projects, and create collective efforts to address today's most pressing social challenges. Through our work we equip our partners with the knowledge, capacity, and support systems to aid in creating lasting impact.
When developing solutions to society's most pressing challenges, the communities we aim to serve are often left out of the discussion. This can lead organizations to fund and implement solutions that are novel, but separated from the day-to-day experiences of those they aim to serve. Today's greatest social challenges are complicated affairs with multiple shared intersecting issues. This is often difficult for any organization to do single handily. Our approach encourages us to take intetional efforts to understand today's challenges and build on the insights we learn to create strategic responses that leave lasting impact.
We imagine a future, where well-being is common, our environment is healthy, and wealth is shared. We see our victory in the solutions and support systems we leave behind that build the foundation for future work. Impact is our currency, and we look to define our legacy based on the lives that we improve.
