We Want Turtles! Giving Communities What They Want

In conversation with Leslie Wolke, Jake Barton, founder and principal of Local Projects will walk through the case study of "Change by Us," an open source application with its first project up and running for New York City. In an attempt to translate large-scale government initiatives into concrete and desired improvements for the city's residents, this website solicits ideas -- as seemingly far-fetched as a turtle pond in the Lower East Side of Manhattan (which has been funded, by the way) -- and connects the ideas and their proposers with relevant city agencies to make them happen. This case study will kick off a far-reaching conversation about how the web is best used to instill and sustain community activism and involvement.
