Ghana ThinkTank

Founded in 2006, the Ghana ThinkTank is a worldwide network of think tanks, managed by John Ewing, Carmen Montoya and Christopher Robbins, creating strategies to resolve local problems in the "developed" world. The network began with think tanks from Ghana, Cuba and El Salvador, and has since expanded to include Serbia, Mexico and Ethiopia. In a recent project, problems were collected in Wales and sent to think tanks in Ghana, Mexico, Serbia, Iran, and a group of incarcerated girls in the U.S. Prison system. These think tanks analyze the problems and propose solutions, which we put into action back in the community where the problems originated—whether those solutions seem impractical or brilliant.
