Christopher Robbins works at Ghana ThinkTank, which has been ‘Developing the First World’ since 2006. They collect problems in the so-called ‘developed’ world, and send them to think tanks in Cuba, Ghana, Iran, Mexico, El Salvador, and the U.S. prison system to analyze and solve. Their network continues to grow.
Then they work with the communities where the problems originated to implement those solutions - whether they seem impractical or brilliant. By exchanging problems and looking for help in unexpected places, they flip typical power dynamics, shift points of view and build unlikely coalitions. Ghana ThinkTank was founded in 2006 by Matey Odonkor, Christopher Robbins, and John Ewing. Carmen Montoya joined in 2009.
