Collaboration
One example of collaboration that impressed me lately was one between Kalamazoo College and Kalamazoo County (Both in MIchigan) around the issue of food accessibility. The students at the college did the research and put it together on the county web-site. The end result will be an active database of not only where fresh food is located in the county, but also identifies food deserts and food rich areas of the county.
