Join us for GOOD IDEAS Columbus, an innovative program that brings together creative and motivated young people with community leaders to solve pressing issues in Central Ohio. We are bringing Columbus’ brightest young minds; designers, architects, engineers, students and artists, and pairing them with some of the most important community leaders to work on real problems affecting transportation in our city. Six design teams of people under the age of 40 will each be paired with a community leader. The leader will ask their team to solve a problem relating to transportation in Columbus. On April 22 the creative teams will present their ideas in a fun-filled night with food, drink and entertainment.
