Transition Town and MonmouthCares are two of over 60 groups across the country who have participated in the campaign, using Fixing the Future to encourage American communities to create resilient, local economies through innovative approaches to job creation. Fixing the Future Across America also links together a national network of business groups and community-based organizations working to improve their local economies. In Fixing the Future, host David Brancaccio (of public radio's Marketplace and NOW on PBS) visits locations across America that are using sustainable and innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity, inspiring hope and renewal amidst economic collapse. These issues are particularly relevant to Monmouth County, where unemployment rose to 8.9% in 2012.
