Bringing People and Policy Together : Glasshouse Policy

Where do we put the 500,000 people who will move to Austin by 2042?

Meet Francisco Enriquez and Tom Visco of Glasshouse Policy. Glasshouse Policy works as a forum in the public to bring policy closer to the people. Traditionally, policy makers will attempt to sell solutions to the public, most of which are difficult to understand. Glasshouse Policy takes a more innovative approach by creating easy to understand games and resources that bring people closer to the issues.

CodeNEXT, the rewriting of Austin's land development codes, effects everyday business and personal life. While it can encourage growth that will be sustainable for the city, it can be a complicated policy conversation. Glasshouse Policy closed this gap by creating a game that answered the simple question, where do we put the 500,000 people who will move to Austin by 2042?
