Ghana ThinkTank


Ghana Think Tank has been 'Developing the First World' since 2006. They collect problems in the U.S. and Europe, and send them to think tanks they established in Cuba, Ghana, Iran, Mexico, El Salvador, and the U.S. prison system to analyze and solve. The network continues to grow…
Then they work with the communities where the problems originated to implement those solutions - whether they seem impractical or brilliant. For Connecting Cities, their proposal is to develop a Ghana ThinkTank App that brings the entire process online. The App will be activated through 'hubs' in their partner cities, towns and villages, pop-up think tank sessions of individuals who use the app together to submit problems (from the 'developed' world) and solutions (from the 'developing” world').

Ghana ThinkTank was presented in the framework of Connecting Cities' In/Visible City 2015 theme.
