The Solutionary Framework

The Solutionary Framework is a multi-step approach that teaches students to think like solutionaries, someone who is able to identify and address unjust systems, from problem identification to solution implementation. The framework can be adapted to fit into existing curriculum.

Students engaged in solutionary learning think more critically and systemically; demonstrate greater compassion for other people, animals, and the environment; and feel a greater sense of agency and optimism in the face of significant social and environmental challenges.
