Forever Learning Institute: Solving the Unsolvable: Finding Solutions to Wicked Problems

How can we help build communities where everyone can not only survive, but thrive? 2020 and the global pandemic further reinforced the importance of a stable, secure home without the looming threat of losing it. Duke faculty and alumni will discuss their diverse work and the support services available in community-related sectors such as evictions, homelessness, refugee resettlement, and food security. Learn about various ways we can come together and create a strong foundation for each other.
