The New CITYzens community wants to empower as many citizens as possible to launch their own positive local initiatives in the heart of their city. To help them get started, New CITYzens offers different creative and simple formats such as the New CITYzens Day which is the first edition, on Saturday, June 2nd.
The New CITYzens Day, how it works? It's very simple: the community chooses a simple and inspiring initiative from our platform www.newcityzens.com, and then replicates it, for one day, in several cities around the world!
For this first international edition, which will serve as a test, several cities have already mobilized (Bogota, Medellin, Lima, Barcelona, Marseille and Paris) around our first theme: "The Green City". As a result, citizen community members and partner associations / NGOs will assist in setting up and coordinating the initiative in their own city. Their goal will be to mobilize as many local people as possible and be as creative as possible to put nature in the heart of a street / neighborhood via perennial or ephemeral facilities, and use this action as an excuse to create a friendly and meeting place between people.
We hope that this first mobilization will motivate others to participate in the future New CITYzens Days that should become, in the future, quarterly appointments.
