The Three Why’s

A thinking routine for keeping global, local and personal connections in mind

Identify or name the topic, question, issue you are examining. Then consider: 

  1. Why might this [topic, question, issue] matter to me?
  2. Why might it matter to people around me [family, friends, community, city, nation]? 
  3. Why might it matter to the world?
