“Welcome to “Framing Sticky Problems”, our second microcourse in the Learning For Change series.”

“Framing Sticky Problems is about looking at a complex issue from different lenses and angles.”

“It’s about finding and grounding problems in human experience to find better solutions.”

“In this course, we share stories of changemakers around the world who found solutions to their sticky problems.”

“These stories will help us zoom in, zoom out, and shift lenses to find the symptoms and root causes of the problem we’ve identified.”

“We’ll turn data points into insights and by the end of the course, we’ll have framed our problem into a Design Challenge Statement that we can use as a springboard for thinking of solutions. ”
