The New York Times: "Alex Steffen, a Designing Optimist"


Alex Steffen, a Designing Optimist

"The best work out there is helping peope see the system, and see that the system is built through conscious choices. When we look at things that way, you find out many are amenable to systemic solutions. Many of the solutions already exist, but in bits and pieces here and there, making things more sustainable, rugged, resilient and fairer. That is really encouraging.

Hope is something that you have against all logic.

Optimism is something where you look at a situation and say good outcomes are possible here and you work to make them happen."
