|How We Make a Difference|
The nonprofit and nonpartisan Civil Society Institute (http://www.CivilSocietyInstitute.org) is a think tank that serves as a catalyst for change by creating problem-solving interactions among people, and between communities, government and business that can help to improve society.
Insight into programs that have and have not worked in recent years has led Civil Society Institute to a unique model for addressing society’s most pressing problems. Simply stated, our approach lies in the way we serve as catalysts for change, especially in key areas of critical need: science policy and regenerative medicine, climate change and global security and economic change.
In each of these areas, we seek out examples of creative thinking and activities already underway, including those of individuals, community groups, businesses and the nonprofit and public sectors. We create interactions between people, communities, government and business in order to link successful programs to groups who can use them, to eliminate obstacles to success and to encourage informed debate of the issues. We also support these efforts with strategic planning and, on occasion, funding.
We’re committed to improving society with breakthrough thinking and creative action.
