Why proximity?
Many of our personal and shared situations have a group of elements related to the situation, whether those elements are people, places, things, ideas, feelings, relationships, groups, times, processes, or whatever else seems related to the situation. But we don’t have a frequent way of talking about, and relating to, a group of elements related to a situation. The word proximity, the meaning of which includes nearness in relationship, can help. In proximity thinking, the proximity consists of elements related or potentially related to a situation, in physical, mental and other ways. (For a slightly longer discussion, see the Quick Start page.)

What is ProxThink?
ProxThink is a proximity-focused framework for creativity, innovation, problem-solving, sustainability and living. Proximity thinking is thinking with this proximity-focused framework, which consists of some basic ideas, patterns, models and tools. Proximity thinking can be used in proximities which may be personal, interpersonal, organizational, market-oriented, local, regional, global, or unique to your situation.

Essence of ProxThink
The ProxThink framework mainly consists of three integrated parts: The Basics help us describe and discuss situations. The ProxPatterns are especially helpful for creativity, innovation and problem-solving. The Growth Model boosts collaboration and encourages growth for people who share a proximity.
