TYS Podcast Ep 8: An Army of Problem Solvers

Shaun Loney, the author of An Army of Problem Solvers, is joining the TYS podcast today to talk about some of the case studies from his book. We highly recommend that you grab a copy as he demonstrates how individuals and small organizations are truly capable of making change that perhaps government may not be. We also recommend you check out Shaun's TEDxTalk.

In this episode we talk about:

  • why a town named Garden Hill has no gardens
  • how even the smallest of projects can revitalize communities
  • the policies that will allow more people to launch social enterprises
  • how economic factors play into missing Indigenous women
  • the three poverty myths 
  • how much is being spent on problems vs. problem solvers
