URL = [1]

Description

"Wicked problems are the massive, intractable issues which tend to defy solutions, or even progress. They’re interconnected and systemic, so attempts to affect change often ripple through in unexpected ways. Things like war, epidemics, and climate change are just a few of the things which the Wicked Problems Collaborative will take on.

Our first book "What do we do about inequality?" looks at rampant and growing disparities in various forms and looks to help the reader understand these problem from new perspectives, while also offering ideas towards creating outcomes that are more just than those that are currently endured."
