At Sweet Water Foundation our mission is to democratize, globalize, and commercialize urban agriculture practices for resilient 21st century communities via hands-on, real-world learning grounded in concepts of community, equity, transformation and resilience. We do this by developing and delivering intergenerational and interdisciplinary educational and career programming that incorporates historical, technological, scientific, artistic, and cultural components into a project-based learning approach accelerated by open data platforms.

In otherwords, It is a solution to many of the challenges we face in the World. It is a initative that shouldn’t go unnoticed by anyone in Chicago!

Kanye West & Common Created 20,000 Jobs for Chicago Youth

KANYE WEST Fall 2012 Afterparty

So I heard from the grapevine that Kanye West and Common teamed with the Urban League to create around 20,000 jobs for youth all around Chicago. I guess Kanye and Common finally got tired of all the tomfoolery of “Chiraq”.

Because 92% of Chicago Youth are unemployed, and unemployment breeds crime. And since this move is in motion, I believe this summer in Chicago will be that much more relaxing.
