“Doing things in a new way is easy; we call this novelty. What’s challenging is to do things in a new way that eventually gets accepted by others; we call this creativity. What’s even more challenging is to do something in a new way that is ethical and advances the human condition; we call this ‘good work.’” – Howard Gardner
The Good Project promotes excellence, engagement, and ethics in education, preparing students to become good workers and good citizens who contribute to the overall well-being of society. Through our research-based concepts, frameworks, and resources, we seek to help students reflect upon the ethical dilemmas that arise in everyday life and give them the tools to make thoughtful decisions.
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), higher education (Good Education), and the use of digital media amongst youth (Good Play). The Good Project has designed a range of public materials, including toolkits, courses, and publications. The project welcomes inquiries and is open to possible collaborations.
