You can help students make a real impact in your community and beyond, starting immediately.

A Solutionary Congress is an event you organize in your school or district, with Solutionary Teams gathering to present practical and visionary solutions to problems in their communities and the world in ways that are just, humane and sustainable for people, animals and the earth. Students develop such vital skills as:

  • effective researching;
  • writing;
  • public speaking;
  • critical thinking;
  • problem solving;
  • consensus building;
  • conflict resolution and collaboration;
  • project management and more

—all in a practical, engaging and authentic context.
