Today’s problems are too deep and interconnected to be solved from the top down. Solutions require empowering individuals to make changes, from the bottom up. I-­SEEED builds an ecosystem of action-­oriented visionaries who achieve large scale, systemic social change and inner transformation through new approaches and the rigorous application of known technologies and strategies.  I-­SEEED “solutionists” are committed to solving the biggest problems plaguing those communities most in need. Together we demonstrate that the application of new frameworks for reducing health and education disparities, alleviating poverty, and using technology to compete in the 21st century clean energy economy can create thriving communities without displacement for all people.
