Deep Drivers of Change
The Greater Louisville Project defines Deep Drivers of Change as the forces that bring about critical opportunities for leaders and communities striving for long-term progress. The Greater Louisville Project’s four Deep Drivers–Education, 21st-Century Jobs, Health, and Quality of Place–inform our civic agenda and build on momentum to catapult Louisville into the top tier among its peer cities.
As the Greater Louisville Project launched, six areas were identified through the Brookings Institution’s “Beyond Merger” report: primary education, postsecondary education, economic development, creating quality neighborhoods, investing in working families, and balancing metropolitan growth. Since then, GLP has honed in on four Deep Drivers of Change: Education, Jobs, Health, and Quality of Place. The Deep Drivers of Change signal a few big but attainable goals that can inform our civic agenda by highlighting both the possibilities and the challenges facing Louisville.
