Commitment to Action

Detroit Innovation Factory (IF-D)

Commitment by

World Policy Institute

In 2014, the World Policy Institute, and their partners including Pilot Projects Design Collective, and the Project for Lean Urbanism, committed to establishing and operating a sustainable, efficient community center focused on finding creative ways to attract migrants to the City of Detroit. The center will develop new approaches to unlocking and activating frozen resources; integrate newer arrivals with existing (often disenfranchised) populations; build resilience through economic revitalization built on entrepreneurialism and social cohesion; and empower an engaged community to generate economic power by harnessing underutilized skills, qualifications, infrastructures, and resources.
