Californians have an incredible capacity for innovation, and there are countless sources for new and exciting ideas that can advance the state in the coming century. California 100 will fund demonstration projects across the state. These projects will focus on trying out and rigorously testing big ideas that have the potential to advance California, but that have not yet been attempted or accomplished at scale.
In addition to demonstration projects, California 100 also aims to bring new voices into the process of policy innovation. Policy expertise can be found not just in our universities and halls of government, but also in our local communities. California 100 will engage in participatory research across the state that generates new, “bottom-up” ways of understanding and measuring progress and success.
