Founded by psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, William Damon, and Howard Gardner in 1996, The Good Project has two decades of experience carrying out qualitative research and developing practical materials with an emphasis on topics including the meaning of good work, effective collaboration, digital citizenship, and civic participation.

Presently, through research-based concepts, frameworks, and resources, The Good Project strives to equip individuals to reflect upon the ethical dilemmas that arise in everyday life by providing them with the tools to make thoughtful decisions.


Good Project Lesson Plans

A resource from The Good Project

Doing things a new way is easy; we call this novelty. More challenging is a new way that gets accepted by others; we call this creativity. Even more challenging is a new way that is ethical & advances the human condition; we call this 'good work'
- Howard Gardner
