Change By Us, an evolution of CEOs for Cities Give a Minute crowdsourcing project, launched today in New York City. Change by Us is an online platform built to engage residents in the brainstorming of city improvement projects. The website, which asks, "Hey NYC, how can we make our city a greener, greater place to live?," crowdsources ideas and groups the responses into action groups based on interest and location. Additionally, the website will be used to channel grants from the Department of Environmental Protection to top sustainability ideas. An article in the New York Times cites Change By Us as a tool that "directly connects residents and city government in order to put words into action." Deputy Mayor Stephen Goldsmith referred to the project as a "social network for grassroots leaders." Change By Us is an important resource for collaboration between non-profits, government, and citizens.
