Description

First Nations reconciliation has to include rebuilding local economies. Problem solvers such as the social enterprises, social entrepreneurs and the small farm movement are demonstrating that we can tackle society's most stubborn problems affordably. How do we get out of our own way to make space for local economies to flourish? How do we reinvent government to make it all happen? An Army of Problem Solvers examines the solutions to these questions, and takes an inside look into some of the people who are already paving the way for reconciliation and the solutions economy.
