We do this by partnering with citizen through the use of participatory design methods along with implementing scenario-planning tool to craft alternative futures with the goal of discovering opportunities and creating a vision for the future.

Unlike other research addressing rust belt revitalization, which often takes a singular focus and point of view, this study will use the concept of wicked problems as a theoretical framework and lens through which to view the issues in the rust belt communities. The research process, synthesis and analysis will take a holistic approach to finding solutions and empowering community members.
