What is the Good Project?
Nearly everyone would like to live in a world in which individuals are good persons, good workers, and good citizens. Yet most everyone would also agree that many counterexamples to these ideals exist.
How can we rectify this situation?
The Good Project is an ensemble of research projects designed to understand the nature of various “goods” and, importantly, to promote their realization in our time.
Through its variety of components, the Good Project investigates realms such as work (Good Work), civic participation (Good Citizenship), organizational collaboration (Good Collaboration), family life (the Family Dinner Project), conceptions of quality (Quality), and the use of digital media amongst youth (Good Play).
From May 8-10, 2015, Project Zero will host a conference in Atlanta, GA.
The GoodWork Toolkit seeks to encourage and support the incidence of good work in our world.
