Looking for Bold Ideas to Fix the City, New York Turns to Crowd Sourcing. A new initiative, Give A Minute, aims at nothing less than reinventing civic engagement for the 21st century.
As part of a larger sustainability-focused initiative, PlaNYC2030, “Give a Minute” New York, will ask citizens to contribute ideas on how to make their neighborhoods greener. Those ideas, which can be submitted via the Give a Minute Web site, Facebook, Twitter, or text (specific address TBA) will be funneled to organizers in city government who will connect people with similar ideas to action groups organized around potential solutions.
