In collaboration with anchor partners in DFW, Boston, and Annapolis, we are conducting 10,000 interviews with regional leaders and influencers from all walks of life to gain their knowledge, wisdom, networks, and influence in support of our mission.
The 10,000 voices project is a global first step in the development of a robust catalog of needs, goals, barriers, and solutions faced by leaders seeking to restore and rejuvenate cities. Our goals are to steward dialogue, build relationships, and foster a culture of shared wisdom among leaders from around the world. In addition, we seek to leverage our global network, partner organizations, and resources to help connect the dots, fill gaps, and break down barriers. We are conducting structured interviews in 100 cities around the world with 100 regional leaders and influencers from each city. We seek to answer three basic questions: How can we come together to break down barriers and overcome challenges to unleash the full potential of our cities?
Once high-potential opportunities are identified, how can we laser strike capital, talent, know-how, leadership, and networks to unleash that potential and build momentum? How can communities flourish long-term?
Our first study is underway in DFW and globally during summer 2022. We plan to interview 100 regional leaders and influencers from all sectors of society to learn their Needs, Goals, Barriers, and Solutions to the restoration and flourishing of their cities. We grow stronger when we share information, take steps to measure impact, and improve together.
Quarterly reports will identify clear and measurable targets and help build pathways to get there along with reports on the state of the region and the landscape globally. We measure impact and communicate wins along the way.
