Community Actions

 While free and open discussion is essential, RxC student chapters are not satisfied with being great discussion groups — rather, we are biased towards thoughtful action. Each RxC student chapter is independent and will run its community as it sees fit, but we also collaborate and share advice on coalition-building on our campuses and experimenting with RadicalxChange concepts.

On campus, students are coordinating in a variety of ways:

  • Recruiting students to the RadicalxChange movement: We need voices from across disciplines and diverse backgrounds to provide different points of view on how we can use RxC concepts to promote change.
  • Educating peers on key RxC issues: Expand understanding of RxC concepts for chapter and broader community education.
  • Experimenting with and applying RxC concepts in local communities: Create RxC experiments to prove out concepts, e.g. quadratic voting, harberger taxes, data as labor, etc. Design and document experiments; report on and share results; and contribute to Best Practices Repository based on experimental results.
  • Taking action: As we build a suite of RxC Best Practices, we hope to see local chapters work within their regions to implement RxC policy design for non-profit, civic and corporate governance, as well as other milieux. Check out the Four Tracks for Participation on our website for more info on directions students can take to get involved!

Examples of Student Projects:
To demonstrate the breadth of diversity that student research can cover, we have included below some examples of student research projects experimenting with RadicalxChange concepts. These projects were originally submitted in the Fall 2018 class, Radical Markets (ECO 406), at Princeton University:
