To foster engagement among New York City residents looking to make the city a better place to live.
Developed by the New York City-based design firm Local Projects and CEOs for Cities, Change by US NYC is an online platform administered by the mayor's office that enables New Yorkers to share solutions, insights, or questions about a neighborhood or citywide issue with community-based organizations, city agencies, and other residents; raise funds for local projects; and start meet-up groups to help "green" the city. Launched with support from the Rockefeller, Knight, and Case foundations, the project eventually will be replicated in communities nationwide.
