Following the success of the first annual Neighborday back in April, GOOD created the Global Neighborhood Challenge to identify and convene some of the most effective community-level innovators from around the globe.
Five impressive candidates—Regina Agyare (Ghana), Bruce Good (South Africa), María Morfín (Mexico), Kurt Shaw (Brazil), Coralie Winn (New Zealand)—were invited to come collaborate in Los Angeles as GOOD Exchange Fellows.
The Fellows shared ideas with one another and like-minded people and organizations based here in Los Angeles. The Exchange culminated with a unique event in a pop-up space in DTLA where the Fellows presented what they learned over the course of the week, and guests from the GOOD community celebrated together.
A byproduct of the Fellowship was the launch of the The GOOD Pioneers of Health: Africa Edition Challenge. In partnership with one of the fellows, Bruce Good from Name Your Hood, we're searching for the most creative and innovative leaders in health work across the continent of Africa.
