Great Ideas from Around the World: And a Giveaway!
Posted by Tara Sturm on January 09, 2013
There are so many great initiatives, projects, and approaches to be found in cities all throughout our planet. We found a few to share with you, and would love for you to share some with us as well! We also know that everyone loves a giveaway, so we've decided to incorporate sharing these ideas with the chance to win a free printed copy of our City Vitals 2.0 Report:
There are two ways you can enter into the contest:
- Follow our Twitter page and tweet us your favorite example with the hashtag #CityIdeas or
- Like us and share your idea on our Facebook Page
Entries must be in by Sunday, January 13 at 5:00pm-- and we'll pick one entry at random to win the free report. We'll also publish everyone's ideas (credited to the contributor) on our blog after the contest closes so everyone has access to these wonderful ideas!
Here are some examples to get you inspired:
Spain: Atlantic Cities covers six ideas that they feel every city should steal from Barcelona -- including thinking like a citizen rather than a planner!
Japan: This article featured on NPR discusses some differences between Eastern and Western approaches to teaching in the classroom-- which could be an indication of how different cultures understand what it means to be “smart.”
Sweden: As covered by Springwise, this European country tackled winter depression using a clever method and already established transportation infrastructure-- showing an innovative way to address a health issue for their citizens.
Have fun! We're looking forward to seeing what amazing ideas you all find!blog comments powered by Disqus
