This is it: our new platform is finally available!
After several months of work, we are pleased to welcome you on the brand new www.newcityzens.com, a key project for the New CITYzens community.
Our will, as a community, is to inspire more and more citizens to take action to change their city. To make this possible, we offer today to city-dwellers from all around of the world, a dedicated space, open to all and collaborative, so that anyone can share the most original local initiatives from its street, neighborhood or city.
We want to bring in one place, an "illustrated" panorama of the latest local solutions that positively change cities (urban agriculture, participative housing, recycling, urban art, new solidarities ...), from Montreal to Berlin via San Francisco, Dakar or Mexico City. By adding testimonials / advice from project leaders, the New CITYzens community wants to make this website, a toolkit to foster creative citizen actions.
And of course, we hope that this platform will become a place of encounters and exchanges among this network of positive city builders.
Finally, we warmly thank those who helped us, during these last months, to make this platform a reality: Cyril Dion - sponsor of this platform and filmmaker of "Tomorrow" –, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, consulting firm Enza, the students of IESA, Mickaël Marquez our top designer, Damien Ravé and his amazing team of developers, and finally the 155 KissKissBanBank donors who believed in this crazy project!
We let you now discover this platform as a visitor, and of course, for all those who wish to join the New CITYzens adventure and become a member of the community or an ambassador of your city, create your profile or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
It is the beginning of a new story. Let’s connect more and more people to change our cities!
